Zendesk to Precede Twitter in Downtown SF

Help desk automation startup Zendesk said today that it has outgrown its South of Market digs at 410 Townsend Street and that it will move this summer to new quarters downtown, not far from the San Francisco Mart building that Twitter plans to occupy next year. As a new tenant at 989 Market Street, Zendesk will be part of a revitalization project granting payroll tax waivers to companies that locate in Central Market area. “Zendesk was founded in Denmark and moved to San Francisco in 2009,” CEO Mikkel Svane said in a statement. “We have been humbled by the wonderful way we have been welcomed to this city. In return, we are proud and happy to help invigorate this up and coming neighborhood.”
