Circle Bank, a Novato-based firm specializing in fractional TIC mortgages, is going to open a full-service branch in Noe because, well, "The demographics of Noe Valley are similar to those of Marin County." They haven't announced which space, but we're thinking in the GNC/Noe Valley Video/Aveda strip. Right next door to Wells Fargo in the short-lived AAA space would work, too.
Update (8/31): Good snark.
