History Isn’t Dead: The San Francisco Mint Building Secures $1 Million Dollar Grant

“top 11” list

of endangered historic places in the U.S. — SF needed to step in to preserve this fine piece of architecture. And with an $100 million dollar retrofitting bill, the city was none to quick to jump on the project. Mayor Lee held a press conference outside the building to share the latest milestone in the building’s saga, along with California Historical Society Executive
Director and CEO Anthea Hartig; State Senator Mark Leno; San Francisco
Assemblymember Phil Ting; and Mike Sangiacomo, California Historical
Society president and CEO of Recology.

“Every time I come in here I fall in love with this place,”

Mayor Lee
said during the press conference. “She is still a rugged granite lady
that represents so much of the history of the city and the state.”

Though no development plan schematics or graphs will be shown to the public until end of 2017, so sit back and breathe easy.
