A team consisting of the San Francisco architects, Wurster, Bernardi and Emmons in association with De Mars and Reay and Sasaki, Walker and Associates, won the Golden Gateway competition in 1959; the 20-acre urban redevelopment project was completed in 1966. Sasaki, Walker and Associates also worked with Edward C. "Chuck" Bassett of the San Francisco Office of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, on the design of a group of plazas at the foot of the firm's ALCOA Buildings.

Some sources indicated that the project was not completed until 1967 or 1968.
