City and County of San Francisco vs. Academy of Art

Completed the negotiation and settlement of a decade-long dispute between the City and County of San Francisco and The Academy of Art University relating the permitted uses of the Academy’s properties throughout the City.  The Settlement resulted in a Development Agreement, numerous conditional use authorizations, a master permit to alter, and numerous municipal code amendments to legalize the project.  The settlement and Development Agreement required and received approval by the San Francisco Planning Department, City Attorney, Historic Preservation Commission, Planning Commission, Board of Supervisors, and Mayor.
