We firmly believe that Presidio Bay's success must be underpinned by our unwavering commitment to dedicated partnerships, community, urban revitalization, design excellence, art in architecture, employment of innovative technology, sustainability and value generation.
We invest in long-term relationships. Whether assuming the role as lead developer or as a project consultant, Presidio Bay values seamless team integration as the key ingredient to delivering best value for our tenants and investors. We achieve this by engendering an open, trusting, and collaborative team environment that facilitates the structured alignment of interests.
The built environment and those occupying it together form the essence of community. One cannot exist without the other. Presidio Bay strives to integrate itself within the neighborhoods we operate, beyond simply our contribution to the urban landscape. Whether it is the renovation of small urban parks or sponsoring programs such as UCSF’s Art for AIDS event, the various Guardsmen charity auctions, the SOMA Rotary Bikes 4 Vets project, or the Alpha Project, we aspire to make a difference by actively participating in the improvement of civic life and philanthropic causes directly benefiting residents and small businesses.
Advances in science, technology, and communication are forcing a rapid evolution in the ways we live and work. Yet our static urban landscapes cannot accommodate this change rapidly enough. Presidio Bay is committed to the modernization and adaptive re-use of existing buildings to revitalize central business districts and adjacent transit-oriented neighborhoods. Wherever and whenever possible, Presidio tackles complex historic renovation and rehabilitation projects that strive to meet the residential and commercial demands of today’s urban population, while preserving the accomplishments and legacies of those who came before us.
Fundamentally, function drives form and never vice versa. Presidio Bay is committed to finding the optimal balance between vernacular architecture and our tenant’s unique identity to define a project’s design aesthetic, while never compromising operational efficiency. Our facilities are unique and timeless expressions of their local environmental, cultural, and historical context and the tenants that reside therein.
Architecture is, in its essence, an application of human creative skill and imagination. Presidio Bay’s team of designers and architects strive to showcase the significant contributions that visual artists make to the social and cultural life of the neighborhoods and cities in which we build, by incorporating commissioned pieces of art often integrated within the overall architecture of our buildings. These projects require the commitment and close cooperation with local artists, architects, fabricators and contractors to go from concept to a unique expression of imagination for all to enjoy.
Partnering with thought leaders across multiple disciplines, Presidio Bay employs advanced building techniques and integrative building technologies to minimize initial capital expenditures, prevent cost overruns, reduce operating costs, improve productivity and increase environmental sustainability. Our commitment to technology extends to the comfort and well-being of the occupants of our buildings. Utilizing the latest innovations in data collection, monitoring, visualization, design and automation, we strive to deliver products that set the stage for a better and brighter future. This fundamental value informs our entire technology venture investment thesis.
We share in the collective responsibility to steward the Earth’s limited resources. Presidio Bay strives to challenge the possibilities and application of green design, construction and operation techniques, as reflected in our commitment to employing the latest in sustainability standards as set forth by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, International WELL Building Institute and United States Green Building Council.
Presidio Bay commits our analytical and technical expertise to unlock an investment’s full potential. We seek the challenge of merging opportunity, relationships, logic and strategic execution to generate significant alpha returns. Underpinning all of our efforts is the knowledge that true value creation is not an isolated incident but a legacy between Presidio Bay, the community, our tenants, and investors.
