About this Item

THE GOLDEN GATEWAY: A GENERAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN and REPORT for REDEVELOPMENT AREA E in SAN FRANCISCO Prepared for the City Planning Commission and Redevelopment Agency of the City and County of San Francisco / BY SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL, ARCHITECTS. Published by SKIDMORE, OWINGS & MERRILL, ARCHITECTS, San Francisco, undated but circa 1955. Softcovers / Wrappers, inner pages bound with metal spirals, large format 11x14 inches oblong, 27 pages, 30 pages including 9 pages of architectural renditions and maps of the proposed development of the Golden Gateway project. Condition: The inside and outside of the rear cover has old coffee stains, they do not affect the inner pages; the front cover has a coffee ring and a few light stains; both the front and rear covers are lightly toned; nonetheless the covers are still doing their job well; internally the pages are very good, tight, bright, clean and unmarked. A Rare Look at the Beginnings of the Transformation of San Francisco from a thriving multi economic class city into a Modern Metropolis for the Wealthy. (Mayor Lee, you are doing a good job of accelerating this tradition!) About The Golden Gateway (from local Wiki): ******The Golden Gateway was one of the first projects of the SF Redevelopment Agency. The area that is now the Golden Gateway used to be an Italian neighborhood called Produce Market. The Redevelopment Agency designated the area blighted and after a long fight with business owners in the area, it was demolished and replaced by Golden Gateway and One Maritime Plaza (both part of the Golden Gateway redevelopment project).****** This original Golden Gateway report, printed before work began on the project, is SCARCE.
