As a state, California is propelled forward on the international stage by the leading industries of its globally renowned cities: Los Angeles and San Francisco. These two cities have played a significant role in ensuring California’s desirability on the global stage. Los Angeles’ leading media and creative industries, spearheaded by the film production of Hollywood have generated vast investment in the city through both business and tourism. As for San Francisco, the rise of Silicon Valley and the technology companies thereof have made it indispensable to California, the wider US economy and worldwide technological progress. However, with the rise of the technology industry in San Francisco, office rents have spiked 165% since Q4 2009. Whilst this demonstrates the desirability of San Francisco to technology companies to be in and amongst other leading global companies, it has also priced out a number of smaller companies now in need of another city to host their operations. Enter, San Diego.
