Mary G. Murphy
Mary G. Murphy, partner-in-charge of the San Francisco office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, served as lead counsel to Treasure Island Community Developers in the entitlement of a new community of approximately 8,000 new units to be constructed on the former naval base. The City of San Francisco has been working to redevelop the 404-acre island since the U.S. Navy closed its base there in 1997.
“The three part nature of the deal (acquiring the property from the Navy and entitling it through the City), as well as the long-term nature of the development, made it interesting and complicated,” Murphy told WIPL.
Murphy, a member of the firm's Real Estate Practice Group and its Diversity Committee, represents a wide variety of developers and investors in real estate transactions and land use issues, with particular experience in historic preservation and tax credits for historic rehabilitation projects.
According to the firm, Murphy recently brought two of the largest entitlement projects in the history of San Francisco to a successful close. Along with the Treasure Island redevelopment, she served as lead counsel to Parkmerced Investors, LLC in the re-entitlement of the largest existing residential property in San Francisco to provide 5,600 new units at Parkmerced.
