Bye Bye, Burger King, Hello SF’s Newest Park

A smashing day as the Presidio demolishes a Burger King to make way for “Tunnel Tops”
By - posted 11/13/2018 No Comment

Join The Presidio for a smashing day of demolition as they take down the former Army-era Burger King to make way for 14 acres of new national parkland – the Presidio Tunnel Tops.

The building will come down in a single day – so join us in the morning for refreshments, remarks, and to watch the excavator’s first blow, revealing 360-degree views of the Golden Gate, San Francisco Bay, the city skyline, and the Presidio.
