George Lucas is about to present a “radically different” design that will hopefully get the backing he needs to bring his $300 million museum to San Francisco’s Crissy Field.
“Star Wars” creator George Lucas hopes a “radically different’’ design will finally get the Force behind his plan for a $300 million museum across from San Francisco’s Crissy Field.
Lucas spokesman David Perry said the new plan to be delivered Friday “reflects real listening and real adaptability” to the Presidio Trust’s concerns.
For the past year, Lucas has been playing dodge ball with critics at the trust and the public in general who have objected to his museum’s 60-foot height and Beaux Arts design, saying they didn’t don’t fit in with the park’s shoreline.
“I think we were very clear that building wasn’t going to fly,’’ Nancy Bechtle, president of the Presidio Trust board, told us Tuesday.
The Presidio Trust is scheduled to review the revised plans from all three applicants for the site in a public meeting Jan. 27, and will probably make its choice within a couple of weeks after that. That may not end the acrimony, however.
