Rehabilitation Planned for Boat Shop and Marina at Fort Baker

Post Date:04/12/2019 4:00 PM

The National Park Service is seeking a commercial partner for the boat shop and marina complex at Fort Baker. The partner that emerges at the end of a review process will be responsible for rehabilitating the existing facilities and operating a new waterfront community center. Suggested elements for the new community center include a restaurant and bar, an event venue, and a public marina for day use. 

Fort Baker is located on waterfront property between Sausalito and the Golden Gate Bridge. From the early 1900s until the 1990s, Fort Baker was an army post. In 1995, ownership was transferred to the National Park Service and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The boat shop and marina complex at Fort Baker consists of an 8,200-square foot main building, three smaller outbuildings, a deck, and a guest dock.

Prospective partners for the boat shop and marina project have until June 12, 2019, to respond to a request for qualifications. The National Park Service will then review the submissions and, in late 2019, release a short list of candidates for further consideration. The park service expects that the partner that is ultimately awarded with the project will begin rehabilitation of the complex in 2020 or 2021, with an expected 20-year lease for operations.

The National Park Service is planning to hold a community workshop on the Fort Baker project in Sausalito City Hall on Monday, June 17. When available, details will be published in Sausalito Currents and on the City website.

More information about the project can be found on the Fort Baker Historic Boat Shop RFQ web page. Any questions about the project may be directed to National Park Service Project Manager Christopher Fryday at chris_fryday@nps.gov. A printed copy of the request for qualifications packet is available at the reference desk of the Sausalito Library.
