SAN FRANCISCO – RiverRock Real Estate Group, a West Coast-based commercial real estate management and leasing firm, today announced that it has been awarded the management of the commercial portion the Presidio, a historic site featuring 80 commercial buildings totaling 1.9 million square feet.  With the addition of this assignment, the company now manages more than 25 million square feet of commercial space.

“The Presidio is a special site with a number of historic properties and an involved community of tenants,” said Jeffrey Deis, Chief Operating Officer of the Presidio Trust. “We selected RiverRock Real Estate Group because we were convinced that they would be strong partners in the stewardship of the Presidio’s buildings, and provide quality customer service to our tenants.”

The 1,491-acre Presidio is within the 75,500-acre Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) and first served as a military post for Spain in 1776. It is now one of San Francisco’s most desirable communities, offering residential, commercial, parks, and a tourism and educational destination. RiverRock will oversee the management of the commercial space, which includes 170 tenants.

“We are proud that RiverRock was selected to manage the commercial properties of the historic Presidio,” said John Combs, Principal of RiverRock Real Estate Group. “This is an exciting opportunity to manage properties that are such a rich part of our country’s history.”

RiverRock has added Joe Vega, Senior Portfolio Manager; Margaret Cheung, Lease Administrator; and Kaitlin Johnson, Project Coordinator, to help manage the portfolio.  Kayla Egnew has relocated to Northern California to be the Assistant Property Manager at The Presidio. 

The Presidio Trust is a distinctive federal agency created to save and transform the Presidio of San Francisco, a historic American place steeped in service. The Trust was established by the United States Congress in 1996 to administer the Presidio, a former army base and new urban national park site located at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. Today, over 2,700 people live in the park’s former military housing, and more than 200 organizations have located in Presidio buildings, attracted by the Presidio’s beauty and historic significance. Under the Trust’s management, the Presidio has been transformed into a stunning visitor destination with an extensive system of trails and scenic overlooks, rehabilitated historic buildings, programs that teach about the Presidio’s military history and natural resources, and tenants and residents who help to sustain the park.
