General Description

The Facilities and Real Property Management Section of Finance and Information Technology (FIT) Division is responsible for creating and maintaining innovative spaces including buildings, grounds and workplaces that support delivering excellent transportation choices for San Francisco. The team is engaged in leading the physical planning and pre-development design of buildings and grounds; providing real property-related services, including acquisition, disposition, or development, and managing facility space planning. The team is also engaged in managing SFMTA's real estate portfolio and leasing of SFMTA owned facilities; delivering janitorial services, completion of routine work order requests; managing staff relocations, and managing the maintenance of structures, utilities, mechanical and electrical systems. This work is all done to ensure that the SFMTA "Campus" – including dozens of buildings and grounds in San Francisco and Daly City – are safe and secure, and function as optimized work environments.

Building Progress Program

The Facility and Real Property Management section performs activities to maintain and improve the 30+ major facilities that are owned or leased by the SFMTA, plus 25 electrical sub-stations and power control units, and 36 restrooms for Muni operators and SFMTA field staff. In addition to doing the activities listed in the general description, the group is managing the Building Progress Program; a long-term major facility expansion and rebuilding effort that will cost in excess of $1.4 billion dollars, and require over 15 years to achieve completion. Within the Building Progress Program are plans for complete rebuilds of the Potrero, Presidio and Kirkland Muni divisions, and construction of a permanent home for the units of the Enforcement group that are located within the Sustainable Streets Division.

Building / Facility Maintenance 

This work group is focused on maintaining SFMTA facilities and delivering small to medium capital projects, especially those identified in the 2015 Facility Condition Assessment (FCA) to improve SFMTA's State of Good Repair across all facilities.

The team leads physical planning and pre-development design of capital building and site project proposals, and manages facility space planning in pursuit of Campus-wide space optimization. To further this work, the team also leads engagement with SFMTA Divisions, City and County of San Francisco Departments, and other project stakeholders, and manages the pre-development phase of facility capital projects.

Long Range Asset Development  

The Long-Range Asset Development team is responsible for maximizing the use of SFMTA-owned real estate to secure additional revenue for the Agency and meet City policy goals, such as activating neighborhoods and developing housing on public property.
