Revitalizing Historic Buildings

We’re making more places to work, live, and visit – and bolstering the park’s financial engine.

Bringing History to Life – and Funding the Park

The Presidio is a National Historic Landmark District and one of the most ambitious historic preservation projects in the United States. Since we got started in 1998, the Presidio Trust has rehabilitated more than 80% of the park’s buildings and 60% of its landscapes. Hundreds of structures have been enlivened as homes, workplaces, and visitor destinations, generating much needed revenue to sustain the park.


Now, we’re bringing more of our the park’s historic structures back to life, repurposing them for their next era of service. It’s a win-win-win: bringing alive historic spaces, adding more ways for people to use the park, and creating a durable source of revenue to bolster the Presidio’s financial engine, sustaining the park for years to come.

Reinventing Historic Warehouses at Crissy Field

In 2024, we’ll finish transforming historic warehouses built by U.S. Army to support operations in World Wars I and II into beautiful waterfront space for new tenant organizations. The buildings are accompanied by 19 EV charging stations available to employees and visitors, conveniently located across from East Beach.

Rehabilitating History on the Main Post

In spring 2024, we’ll begin rehabilitating three historic Main Post buildings. We’re reinventing the post’s original hospital for possible use as a school. We’re transforming an Army barracks near Presidio Officers’ Club into small office space. And we’re preparing the last of the majestic brick barracks along Montgomery Street for a new use. The buildings will be ready for lease in 2025.

Lease Office Space at the Presidio

The Presidio is home to a diverse community of more than 200 organizations that lease space within the park. High-tech start-ups, corporate headquarters, gyms, restaurants, retailers, and so many more businesses call the Presidio home. Learn how to become one of them!
