The Board of Education voted Tuesday to sell a school building that has been vacant for a decade in a deal with San Francisco State University that will net the school district nearly $11 million.
“This ... sale represents a great opportunity for our school district and San Francisco State,” said Deputy Superintendent Richard Carranza.
The building at 700 Font Blvd. is the former site of the San Francisco Unified School District’s Louise Lombard School. It later housed the School of the Arts, but has not been used since 2002. The district declared it a surplus site in 2007.
The one-story, 51,000-square-foot building sits on 2.5 acres of land and abuts the SFSU campus on two sides. University spokeswoman Ellen Griffin said SFSU has had its eye on the building since the SFUSD stopped using it.
