6. How secure are the studios? How safe is the area?
The perimeter at H.I.T. Wall is secure 24 hours a day. Each tenant needs a key to get into the complex and a seperate key for their individual room. In addition, each room is equipped with it's own alarm system provided that each leaseholder have a phone line established in conjunction with the alarm. H.I.T. Wall has paid for the monthly alarm fee for each studio to have the lines run, but each leaseholder is responsible for establishing their own, unique phone number. Once you become a tenant, we will provide you with more details as how to establish your alarm system.
The area of town is zoned "industrial" and considered very safe.
7. Do I have to give a security deposit? How much?

12. Where are your studios located?

13. How do I get to H.I.T. Wall?

FROM SF (101): If you are coming south from San Francisco, you take 101 south, get off on Grand Avenue. Make a left at the light onto Airport Blvd. and then go two blocks and make a right on Baden. Go up to the next stop light and make a left onto South Linden Ave. Go down about 5 or 6 blocks and 120 South Linden Ave. is on the right hand side. You'll see a big flag pole out in front which will soon lift a flag to proclaim the existence of the first rehearsal space to open in the Bay Area since the demise of Downtown rehearsal. H.I.T. Wall Studios.

FROM SAN MATEO (101): If you are coming north on 101, take the Grand Avenue exit in South San Francisco and go west, into the ocean. Just kidding. Go west, across the freeway on Grand Avenue. At the stop light, make a left onto Airport Blvd. and then a quick right onto Baden. See above for the exciting conclusion.
FROM 280: If you are coming from 280 north or south, take the 380 interchange by Tanforan Shopping Center, go north on 101. See above for the exciting conclusion.
14. Will there be an elevator for tenants on the second floor?
An elevator would cost about a half million dollars. So, no. We're talking 13 steps to get to the second floor, not a big deal.
