Pier 1 and Campus CAD files
Below is a Cultural Landscape Report (CLR) for Fort Mason Center that was completed in 2009 by Architectural Resources Group (ARG). The CLR serves Fort Mason Cneter and NPS as the primary treatment document for cultural landscapes and a strategy for long-term preservation. The additional documents include a Fort Mason Center History Tour prepared by the NPS and a copy of a recent presentation provided by NPS staff to the design competition jury on National Historic Landmark considerations.

Front Entry Redesign
FMC staff has been working with CMG landscape architects to develop a concept plan for the redesign of the outer parking lot along Marina Boulevard. Although visitors to Fort Mason Center need to travel through this lot to get into Fort Mason Center, the property is owned and controlled by the City and County of San Francisco. The changes are being proposed to give Fort Mason Center more of a presence along Marina Boulevard and to make our entry more inviting and gracious. The plan includes widened sidewalks on both the north and south sides of the parking lot that allow for bike and pedestrian lanes, additional planted areas, and potential additional areas for seating and public art. The plan also calls for new entry signage and wayfinding, and the removal of the existing parking gates and the installation of a “pay and display” system for the paid parking on campus.
Fort Mason Center has been working with the National Park Service to advocate and plan for the extension of San Francisco’s historic streetcar line, the F-line, from its existing terminus in Fisherman’s Wharf to Fort Mason Center. The extension would cover less than a mile along City streets and through an existing rail tunnel adjacent to Fort Mason Center. The new terminus of the extension would be in the Fort Mason Center parking lot adjacent to Building A. The National Park Service has completed the environmental impact Statement (EIS) for the extension. Approximately $38 million of funding is needed to design and construct the extension. Attached is a summary of the streetcar extension proposal, with a rendering of the planned terminal within Fort Mason Center. The terminal has not yet been designed. Additional information can be found on NPS’s website for the project, including a conceptual engineering report.
