 In one word, NOTHING.

The SF Port is continuing on the same path as before with their plan to develop SWL351. (more…)

FOGG Open Letter – November 15, 2008

Sunday, November 16th, 2008

If you haven’t already heard, the SF Port deadline for responding to their RFP (Request for Proposals) on Seawall Lot 351 was October 30th.  There was only one proposal submitted; it is from San Francisco Waterfront Partners ll.  (Why are we not surprised?). As you know SWL 351 is adjacent to the Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim Club, and would be an integral part of SFWP’s development for 170 luxury condominiums and a 500 plus space underground parking garage on the present Club site.

Public Statement
Wednesday, November 5, 2008
On August 13, 2008, the Port of San Francisco issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking private sector development proposals for Seawall Lot 351 on the Embarcadero at Washington Street.  Responses were due on October 30, 2008 which unfortunately coincided with severe financial uncertainty worldwide.  As such, the Port received only one proposal which was submitted by San Francisco Waterfront Partners II.

The Port applauds San Francisco Waterfront Partners II for their commitment to our process and our due date despite such uncertainty.  However, to attract additional proposals for this extraordinary waterfront site, the Port will terminate the current RFP process and initiate a new solicitation with responses due in December 2008.

FOGG will provide additional details when available.
