Some commercial corridors in the Richmond District are riddled with empty storefronts. A new survey by the Richmond Review newspaper shows that the majority of them have been empty for more than a year.
Collectively, there are about 947 commercial spaces with a significant presence or signage on the ground floor of all of these Sunset shopping districts or commercial corridors, of
which 80 appear to be empty.
