Five Point Holdings, LLC (“Five Point” or the “Company”), an owner and developer of large mixed-use, master-planned communities in California, including Valencia, announced Thursday it has transitioned the operations for its Candlestick and The San Francisco Shipyard communities in the city of San Francisco.

As part of the transition, the Company entered into a consulting arrangement with a newly-formed entity, Shipyard Advisors, LLC, whose three principals are: Willie Brown, former Mayor of San Francisco and Speaker of the California State Assembly; Steven Kay, prominent attorney and businessman in San Francisco; and Kofi Bonner, former Co-Chief Operating Officer of Five Point. In connection with the new consulting arrangement, Bonner will resign from his Co-COO position at Five Point to join Shipyard Advisors.

Shipyard Advisors will work closely with the Company on a number of initiatives. The primary initiative will be facilitating communications between the various federal, state and local agencies to accelerate the completion of the government’s re-assessment and, if necessary, remediation of environmental conditions at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and the subsequent conveyance of land for redevelopment of this vital area of San Francisco.

Emile Haddad, Chairman and CEO, said, “More than 20 years ago, the city of San Francisco committed to redevelop the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard into a vibrant new mixed-use development benefiting the neighboring Bayview community and the city at large. One of those commitments is the delivery of new affordable homes, which are needed more today than ever. I believe this new arrangement will bring a focused effort by everyone to allow this project to move forward and deliver the housing and benefits long-since anticipated for this community.”

Brown added, “Working alongside Emile and the Five Point team, Shipyard Advisors will join forces with the City and the federal and state agencies to give the community the economic opportunities they deserve and need, as well as to connect the Candlestick and Shipyard communities to the downtown.”

In connection with the resignation of Bonner, Lynn Jochim will be the sole Chief Operating Officer for the Company. Jochim is currently serving as the Co-Chief Operating Officer whose primary duties entail the day to day operations of the Company’s two communities in Southern California, the Great Park Neighborhoods in Irvine and Valencia (formerly known as Newhall Ranch) in Los Angeles County.

Her duties now will also include overseeing the day to day operations of the Company’s communities in San Francisco, where she will be focusing her efforts on operations at Candlestick. The Company recently received regulatory approvals for its first phase of Candlestick, which previously was planned for a retail fashion outlet mall and is now planned to include 750,000 square feet of office space, approximately 1,600 homes and 300,000 square feet of lifestyle retail-entertainment and amenity space. As currently planned, Candlestick ultimately will include approximately 7,000 homes.

With the transition of operations from Bonner to Jochim, Haddad commented, “Kofi has successfully led the entitlement and operational efforts for our Company in San Francisco, including the recent approvals for our first phase at Candlestick, and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with Kofi and Shipyard Advisors. As we turn our focus to Candlestick’s first phase, I am confident that it will be in good hands under Lynn’s operational leadership. She has executed exceptionally well over many years at our Southern California communities, including recently completing our first land sales at our Valencia community in Los Angeles.”

    The overarching questions is, when will Fivepoint make any money in SF? They post huge operating losses. Kofi has made nearly $3MM per year and has nothing to show for it.
