Presidio Bay develops real estate that energizes communities and creates lasting value for our partners. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our work, with an unwavering commitment to each of our ten values: dedicated partnerships, community engagement, urban revitalization, design excellence, art in architecture, hospitable thinking, wellness, sustainability, innovative technology, and value-driven.
The Presidio Bay Ventures team is passionate about placemaking and every aspect of the built environment. We have studied the rich history of the real estate industry and are constantly observing our environment to understand how we can push the envelope. Through our insatiable desire to learn from our past and remain at the forefront of our field, we look for and address evolving trends in design, construction, sustainability, and human well-being to create developments that stand the test of time. In this series of white papers, we apply our unique lens to key real estate topics, and share our thinking on selected real estate sectors, technology, art in architecture, placemaking, and diversity. By sharing, we hope to inspire candid discourse with others who share our passion for continually improving the way we perceive, construct and interact with the built environment.
At Presidio Bay Ventures, we believe authentic placemaking is at the heart of successful development. We work to create spaces that both inspire an emotional connection and provide the space for communities to congregate and connect.
Art and craftsmanship play a crucial role in placemaking. We frequently collaborate with local artists and creators to ensure our buildings reflect the culture, identity and community of the neighborhoods where we work. Explore this section to learn about some of our creative conspirators.
Presidio Bay was designed to be more than just a real estate development firm. Our mission is to optimize human potential and well-being. We develop real estate but are also deeply focused on revitalizing neighborhoods, creating jobs, increasing affordable housing and supporting charitable initiatives that cultivate stronger communities. Our primary areas of focus include:
→ increasing diversity in the commercial real estate industry through the Presidio Bay Ventures Real Estate Scholarship;
→ supporting access to affordable, high-quality early childhood education and daycare;
→ sustaining health through the UCSF Alliance Health Project’s LGBTQ-affirming HIV, mental health, substance use, sexual health and education programs;
→ assisting small businesses and veterans through the programs of the SOMA Rotary, a local San Francisco chapter of the global Rotary Club;
→ and raising voter participation in every election and closing the race and age voting gap through our commitment to When We All Vote, a non-profit, nonpartisan organization.
We recognize that true value can only be achieved in partnership with residents, commercial tenants, investors, municipal leaders and citizens in the wider community. Below is a closer look at our key initiatives. You can also see a full listing of all our Community Partners here.
