Presidio and the Ninth Circuit

The Presidio Historical Society and the Sierra Club lost their bid to block a proposed new hotel in the Presidio when the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected their argument. Though the court ruled that the hotel project could go forward, it required its size to be restricted to existing (or previously existing) developed square footage in the Presidio.

“We are disappointed the Appeals Court found the Trust’s proposed Main Post hotel — 14 buildings, 12 of them new — might be built,” the Presidio Historical Society said in a statement following the ruling. “But the court imposed important limits on construction in the Presidio, which we welcome and which will help protect the long-range future of the Presidio.”
