Opening: First American Title

First Republic Bank opening in the old Tuttimelon spot is still a rumor, but First American Title moving into Noe looks like a done deal.

We noticed this sign today at 1354 Castro St. @ Jersey today across from Walgreen's on the corner that use to be Michelle's Tailor. Michelle's recently wedged into the former nail salon spot next door, and First American Title will slide into its place. Here's what the building and space use to look like - and it appears to have changed hands recently.

A title company of the same name at 18th and Castro closed in 2008 because of market conditions - so maybe it's another sign of the times (that the real estate market is even hotter than usual again).

To recap: Nail salon out, title company in - that's trading up, right?

No indication of when First American Title will open but it looks imminent.

At least it won't stink like a nail salon.

No, just like a title company.
