Public Statement regarding reissuance of SWL 351 RFP

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.
