2017 Good Government Awards: How Robert Beck Launched the Transformation of Treasure Island
April 4, 2017

The 2017 Good Government Awards, Held on March 22, recognized outstanding performances by Managers Working for the City and County of San Francisco.

Bob Beck led the transfer of nearly 300 acres of Treasure Island/Yerba Buena Island from the U.S. Navy to the City of San Francisco, the first stage of what will become one of the most important development projects in the city’s history. In 2013, Beck assumed the management of the Treasure Island Development Program during a crucial moment in the 25-year process of transforming the former naval base into a sustainable, mixed-use, high-density, transit-oriented project with 8,000 homes, 500,000 square feet of retail and commercial space, and three hotels. Thanks to Beck’s skills in working with environmental remediation, lease transfers, resident relocation, city agency regulatory review, public financing districts and county transportation, the first homes on Treasure Island are expected to be ready for occupancy later this year.
