Project Description
Project Number: 14-045
Project Name: Fort Scott Parking Regulations at Ralston and Upton
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Transportation/Parking
CE Applied: Repair of roads and parking facilities
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
As Fort Scott becomes more active, parking management is necessary to ensure that parking supply remains adequate into the future. In 2013, parking regulations were implemented along Storey Avenue, in the parking lot in front of Building 1208, the parking lot serving the Log Cabin (13-038), and again in 2014 at the CNG lot located off of Lincoln Boulevard (14-014). This project will install parking machines to vend parking permits and associated regulatory signage along Battery Wagner Road and along Upton Avenue and Ralston Avenue between buildings 1227 and 1230. Parking along Battery Wagner Road will be regulated every day from 8am-6pm for Zones P and 9, which will allow Storey Avenue residents to continue to use this area for overflow parking. The rest of the area will be regulated similar to other areas of Fort Scott (every day from 8am-6pm) and zoned as Zone 9.

Project Number: 14-041
Project Name: North Fort Scott Residential Neighborhood Landscape Enhancements
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Landscaping/Site Work
CE Applied: Landscaping and landscape maintenance
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
This neighborhood landscape enhancement project is part of ongoing efforts to upgrade all residential neighborhood landscapes to support Trust sustainability, aesthetic and planning goals. The scope of work includes select tree removal (16 mature eucalyptus trees in the Ramsel Court area), new concrete patios associated with most buildings, and the addition of ornamental plantings at the entrys and in areas visible from the streets. The design will build upon the mid-century modern aesthetic of the the structures and will include plants from Australia and South Africa. While the non-historic North Fort Scott neighborhood (2-story, multi-unit residential buildings constructed in 1970) does not contribute to the NHLD, its context within the larger NHL and adjacent VMP areas has been taken into consideration in the design approach. The work will be coordinated with planned landscape replacement/enhancement along the Doyle Drive construction corridor. Landscaping of Lendrum Court will be reviewed as a separate project following completion of soil remediation.

Project Number: 14-042
Project Name: Soil Sampling Workplan for Lendrum Court
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Remediation
CE Applied: Improvements to meet disabled access requirements
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
Trenching and sampling of the Lendrum Court residential neighborhood is required to determine the extent of Army-era waste debris present. Sampling will allow for the development of remedial alternatives and designs to address the debris in a manner protective of human health and the environment per guidance by the Department of Toxic Substance Control. Approximately 20 test pits will be excavated near the 20 residential buildings around Lendrum Court to evaluate the extent of debris present. Test pits are planned to be approximately 18 inches wide, up to 8 feet long, and 5 feet deep. Test pits will be excavated using a subcontractor-operated mini-excavator. Soil will be returned to the test pits and compacted by wheel rolling on the same day as it is excavated. To allow access for test pits, undergrowth and small brush in the dense forest north of and around Lendrum Court will be cut to approximately 6 inches above ground surface. This will allow visual observation of ground, distinctions in topography, and exposure of debris, while still leaving roots and some ground cover in place to limit soil erosion. Trees will remain in place to provide canopy and visual screening for residents. Tree protection measures will be incorporated in the vegetation removal plans. Tenants and neighbors have been consulted in public meetings, public outreach is ongoing, and the project is posted on the Trust’s website.

Project Number: 14-044
Project Name: Sand Import and Storage at Nike Site
Planning District: PHSH
Project Type: Miscellaneous
CE Applied: Routine maintenance and property and resource management
CE Date: 8/25/2014
Project Description:
Dune sand is being excavated from the CPMC hospital site at Cathederal Hill in San Francisco. The Trust will acquire up to 7,500 cubic yards of sand from the site. The sand will be stored for future projects (subject to additional environmental review) at the “Nike site” located at Battery Caulfield. Battery Caulfield is a former Nike Ajax Missile Launch site (1954-1962) equipped with three underground missile magazines recently determined ineligible as a historic resource. The new sand will be stockpiled so as to retain required trucking circulation and to permit access for crews to sample monitoring wells at the site. The two locations proposed for stockpiling the sand will avoid the magazine doors, asphalt, existing berms, drainage, adjacent natural resource landscapes and monitoring wells. Sand hauling will involve approximately 25 truck trips per day for up to 30 days. Hauling trucks will be prohibited from entering or exiting the 14th or 15th Avenue gates.

Project Number: 14-043
Project Name: Gorgas Avenue Stairs and Crosswalk
Planning District: Letterman
Project Type: Transportation/Parking
CE Applied: Repair of roads and parking facilities
CE Date: 8/8/2014
Project Description:
A parking lot located on the south side of Gorgas Avenue across from building 1162 and adjacent to building 1076 is separated from Gorgas Avenue by a historic brick retaining wall approximately 2-1/2 feet in height. Visitors who park in the lot often jump off of the wall and cross the street to the Gorgas Warehouses without a crosswalk. This project will address the access and safety issues created by this condition and includes the construction of stairs leading from the parking lot accompanied by a new crosswalk. The stairs will be constructed at the location of the wall removed for utilities (date unknown) thereby minimizing damage to a historic resource. Two parking spaces will be removed to accommodate the new crosswalk leading from the stairs.

Project Number: 14-038
Project Name: Presidio Golf Course Bunker Rehabilitation – Holes 2, 11 and 14
Planning District: South Hills
Project Type: Golf Course
CE Applied: Landscaping and landscape maintenance
CE Date: 7/31/2014
Project Description:
The Presidio Golf Course was initially constructed in 1895 and is a contributing resource to the NHLD. The existing bunkers (sand traps) near holes 2, 11 and 14 have poor drainage, hold water, do not reflect the historic character of the golf course, and create a customer experience inconsistent with that of the rest of the golf course. This project continues the bunker rehabilitation that began in 2011 and is expected to be completed in 2016 (to date, half the holes are finished; see 10-075, 12-001 and 13-024). The work will include the removal of existing sand, excavation to add new drainage, and construction of new bunkers. The new landform designs are reflective of golf course architecture in the 1920s and will be done in the spirit of the original 1923 Fowler and Simpson course re-design.

Project Number: 14-040
Project Name: Building 50 Officers' Club Classroom Wall Construction
Planning District: Main Post
Project Type: Rehabilitation
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date: 7/30/2014
Project Description:
This project will construct two new walls in the classroom (room 110) at building 50. This room was constructed as part of the building 50 rehabilitation project (see 11-045) and is comprised of a new ceiling, floor and two storefront assembly walls. The remaining walls feature large murals from the early 1950s depicting a romanticized interpretation of the early Spanish colonial life at the Presidio. The murals were moved from their original locations during the rehabilitation, and occupy nearly the full length and width of the two walls. The construction of the new walls will achieve protection of historic murals while providing a surface to attach whiteboards and visual aids for instructors. Photographs of the murals will be installed at a nearby location so that their presence can be recorded and interpreted.

Project Number: 14-035
Project Name: Presidio Officers’ Club Wall-based Art Installation by Andy Goldsworthy
Planning District: Main Post
Project Type: Miscellaneous
CE Applied: Installation of signs, displays, and kiosks
CE Date: 7/17/2014
Project Description:
The intent of this installation is to build upon recent successes in using art about place as a way to welcome the public, broaden audience and reach, and enhance visitor use and enjoyment. The proposed sculpture is much smaller in scale than the previous Presidio works of the artist and is intended to provide a focal point at the western end of the new [non-historic] courtyard in the Presidio Officers Club. The sculpture would be comprised of a five- to six-foot wide half sphere constructed of curved eucalyptus branches sourced from the park. The sphere would be housed within a rammed earth wall which would be constructed immediately in front of (and extend the length of) the existing (new) courtyard wall, at a distance from the historic portions of the building. From a visual perspective, the rammed earth wall would essentially become the westernmost wall of the forecourt. The work is proposed to be permanent, and thus will be subject to the review process outlined in the Presidio Trust Art Policy and Art Collections Manual.

Project Number: 14-022
Project Name: Building 1230 Rehabilitation & Tenant Improvements
Planning District: Fort Scott
Project Type: Rehabilitation/TI
CE Applied: Rehabilitation or improvement of historic properties
CE Date: 6/30/2014
Project Description:
The former warehouse (built 1918, mothballed 2008) is a historic structure in the Fort Scott district. Golden Link Concessionaire (tenant) seeks to rehabilitate the building for an operations and maintenance center for the Presidio Parkway (former Doyle Drive) scheduled for completion in 2016. The primary tenant improvements will accommodate general office use and a two-hour fire rated control room. The scope of work includes: hazardous material abatement, seismic stabilization, MEP upgrades, insulation, and tenant improvements for office use (new floor finishes, new paint, new lighting, select new partitions, plumbing fixtures, ADA upgrades, and new stairs and ramp at building entrances). New partitions to be added to accommodate office spaces will be differentiated from original walls with the use of newer materials, storefront glazing and transoms. New plumbing fixtures will allow for updated bathrooms and a new kitchenette/breakroom. Existing character-defining features, historic finishes and elements of the building’s floor plan, including intact beadboard wall and ceiling finishes, will be retained. Wood-frame windows will be restored. Improvements to the unfinished attic/storage space include new MEP equipment and the buildout of partitions to seal off unused space. Seismic stabilization will require a new perimeter foundation, roof replacement (in kind) and new sheathing. The building will be fully sprinkled. Building rehabilitation will achieve a LEED Silver certification or better. A lift truck, a small emergency response truck and one other vehicle will be parked nearby.

Project Number: 14-032
Project Name: Barnard Avenue Riparian and Oak Woodland Habitat Restoration
Planning District: East Housing
Project Type: Vegetation Restoration
CE Applied: Removal of non-historic materials and structures
CE Date: 6/27/2014
Project Description:
The Barnard Avenue Protected Range (BAPR) was remediated and re-graded in 2013 to better accommodate perennial stream flows and to allow for wetland enhancement at the site. This project will enhance habitat within a 0.26-acre site adjacent to BAPR. Approximately 18 trees will be removed, and the site will be cleared of invasive ivy and shrubs, including English ivy, cotoneaster and Himalayan blackberry. The majority of the site is anticipated to be seasonally wet, and will support willow riparian species. The up slope area will consist of a mix of shrubs, forbs and native trees such as coast live oak, toyon and wax myrtle to provide wildlife cover and forage. The design layout includes a relatively high planting density (an average on-center spacing of 3 to 4.5 feet) to facilitate the rapid establishment of dense cover to provide erosion protection (after year 3) and to resist invasion by non-native weeds. Work will begin as soon as possible after bird nesting season ends August 1st. Revegetation will immediately follow tree removal, and SWPPP measures will be implemented. A soil management plan, DTSC approval, and additional remediation may be necessary if construction or restoration efforts will result in an increase in exposure of human or ecological receptors to contaminants of concern (COCs) in soil in the Land Use Control (LUC) zone.
