Revitalizing the Fort Scott Campus

The Presidio Trust has begun a public process to explore the future of Fort Winfield Scott, an iconic campus next to the Golden Gate Bridge in the Presidio of San Francisco, a national park site. We are seeking proposals through a competitive solicitation process from organizations interested in and capable of revitalizing the site as a campus addressing contemporary environmental and/or social challenges.

The offering encompasses 20 to 22 buildings within the 30-acre campus and includes a range of approximately 280,000 to 295,000 square feet of space.

This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a place for change in the world.

What is Fort Scott?

When the Presidio was a U.S. Army post, Fort Scott was dedicated to maintaining the coastal defenses of the Golden Gate. Built between 1909 and 1912, Fort Scott features the earliest example of the Mission Revival architectural style at the Presidio.

Fort Scott is one of the last large collections of buildings within the national park awaiting revitalization and reuse. Given its setting, views, and legacy of military service, Fort Scott is an important place within the Presidio and Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Two-Step Public Solicitation Process

The Presidio Trust is using a two-step public solicitation process to explore whether there is interest from capable organizations to revitalize Fort Scott. First, in January 2018 we will issue a Request for Concept Proposals (RFCP) seeking concepts and qualifications. If this step yields qualified respondents, we will invite those organizations to participate in a full Request for Proposals (RFP) process. The Trust will then select a finalist and enter into negotiations for a long-term master development agreement.

Stay Connected to the Fort Scott Project

We invite the public, organizations who are interested in submitting a proposal, and organizations who may wish to become tenants at Fort Scott to stay connected to this process. Please provide your email address; we will offer regular updates.
