George Lucas Museum Among Finalists For San Francisco Presidio Development

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) -- "Star Wars" creator George Lucas' proposal for a museum to showcase his art collection is among three development projects being considered for a plot of land at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The three finalists for the 8-acre site facing Crissy Field in San Francisco's Presidio were presented Monday.

The second proposal is by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy. It would retain much of the site's open space and include displays about the history of the Presidio and regional open space. The third is by architecture firm WRNS Studio and consulting firm Chora and would create a hybrid museum and science and nature center.

The final decision on the site will be made by the Presidio Trust, which has not yet set a deadline to select the winning proposal.
