The Presidio Trust invites the public to consider the future of an important site at Mid-Crissy Field. This site was once a commissary, and it is currently occupied by Sports Basement.
The Trust's longstanding objective has been to create a cultural institution of distinction at this magnificent waterfront location (see the 2002 Presidio Trust Management Plan, Chapter 3). Now that the area is being transformed by the new approach to the Golden Gate Bridge (a project known as the Presidio Parkway), the time is right to plan for the future.
In December 2011, the Presidio Trust completed the Mid-Crissy Area Design Guidelines which set out the aesthetic principles for the area. In November 2012 the Trust issued a Request for Concept Proposals (RFCP). Sixteen responses were submitted. After considering public comment and engaging with a number of the teams directly, the Trust invited The Bridge/Sustainability Institute, Lucas Cultural Arts Museum, and The Presidio Exchange to continue in the process via a Request for Proposals (RFP) that was issued in May 2013. Final proposals were submitted on September 16, 2013 (view them on the team pages below).
On November 21, 2013, the Presidio Trust Board of Directors issued a public statement
regarding the proposals and invited each team to submit revised proposals by January 17, 2014.
