Our Presidio Trust Invites You to Consider the Future of the Former Commissary at Crissy Field – Today Thru Wed – July 29-31

Monday, July 29th, 2013

All the deets:

“The Presidio Trust invites the public to consider the future of the former Commissary at Crissy Field, which 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. 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 of this area.

The Process

In November 2012 the Presidio 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 three teams to continue in the process via a Request for Proposals (RFP) that was issued in May 2013. Final proposals are due September 16, 2013. The teams are: 

  • The Bridge/Sustainability Institute – proposed by the Chora Group and WRNS
  • Lucas Cultural Arts Museum – proposed by George Lucas
  • Presidio Exchange – proposed by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy

Join us at Informational Open Houses July 29 – 31

Drop in, meet the project teams, and engage in one-on-one discussion about this remarkable opportunity. The Open Houses will be held at the Observation Post (211 Lincoln Boulevard, near the Post Office on the Main Post). Three sessions will be offered on each day: 8:30am to 10am; 11:30am to 1pm; and 6:30pm to 8pm.

The schedule is as follows: 

  • Monday, July 29 – Lucas Cultural Arts Museum
  • Tuesday, July 30 – Bridge/Sustainability Center
  • Wednesday, July 31 – Presidio Exchange

If you have any questions, please email the Presidio Trust at commissary@presidiotrust.gov.

The Stop Motion Dinosaurs of the Presidio – Jurassic Park Models Used to Decorate LucasFilm’s Letterman Digital Arts Center

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

As you’re walking in the Presidio along Chestnut Street West (or whatever they call it these days) through the Letterman Digital Arts Center, you can look up and see this view through the windows of a walkway connecting buildings.

[Oh, these models are called maquettes, and the one in the middle is a spaceship of some type – see comments]

Can you ID the species? Sure you can…

Port of Oakland – So Many Container, So Few Container Crane AT-ATs

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

The busy Port of Oakland has more international shipping containers than you can imagine.

That keeps the Star Wars AT-AT-looking container cranes busy all the time.
