BUILD PUBLIC was founded by Michael Yarne and the partners at BUILD in 2012 as a mission-driven nonprofit that leverages creative public-private partnerships to create, finance and maintain high quality urban public space in San Francisco and beyond.
BUILD PUBLIC is now led by Executive Director Brooke Ray Rivera and BUILD PUBLIC's Board of Directors. As a sister nonprofit to BUILD, BUILD PUBLIC has a deep understanding of the development community as well as a strong working relationship with San Francisco's city staff and agencies. BUILD PUBLIC has a strong track record of innovation and successful implementation of new models for public space delivery and maintenance, working collaboratively with cities, neighborhoods and the real estate development community to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes. These combined with a commitment to meaningful and collaborative engagement with the communities in which they work allow BUILD PUBLIC to excel as a facilitator and driver of its innovative public space projects.
