PRESIDIO COASTAL TRAIL
Stretching three miles along the northwestern edge of the City, MFLA designed the Presidio Coastal Trail to provide an accessible multi-use trail and a series of new overlooks, destinations, and park amenities along the bluffs of the Presidio coastline.
3 linear miles
MFLA has completed construction administration for the initial project phase, the Golden Gate Overlook and associated trails and amenities. Prominent, well-used and iconic, this parkland is considered by the client and the federal stakeholders to compliment other developed areas of the Presidio as a place to enjoy and recreate within the rugged coastal bluffs, which form a unique, natural edge to an otherwise dense, urban setting.
To guide the project through the design process in a thoughtful and efficient manner, MFLA has provided an approach to the project management based on consistent leadership, and a single point of contact for two federal agencies and one non-profit that constitute the core stakeholder group of over forty-five people.
MFLA cultivated an overall team dialogue among the design and client teams, working to develop a strong project vision, crafted closely with client input, addressing public programming and cultural and ecological resource considerations, as well as site amenity development through workshops and presentations. This approach simplifies communication on projects with complex agency, department and consultant teams, a benefit on RPD projects such as the renovation of neighborhood parks.
