Presidio Trust shoots down George Lucas' plan, 2 others Lucas to get
another option away from Crissy Field site
by John King San Francisco Chronicle February 3, 2014The Presidio Trust called an end Monday to the competition for the 8- acre site on Crissy Field coveted by "Star Wars" creator George Lucas and two other would-be developers.
The unanimous vote by the trust's seven-member board of directors left the site's future open and rejected all three proposals - including the one by Lucas, who had pledged to spend $700 million to build and endow a museum holding his collection of popular art.
Instead, the board said it wants to work with Lucas to find an alternative site for his museum within the 1,491-acre park. As for the other teams - one led by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, the other by architecture firm WRNS Studio - the board said it hopes to pursue "collaboration" with them regarding future programs at the Presidio.
