LucasFilm Sold but Affordable Housing at Grady stays

Lucas sounds determined to build affordable housing at Grady Ranch

According to the Marin IJ,  Grady Ranch is still being considered for low income housing despite selling Lucasfilm to Disney

"No theme parks at Grady!" she added in a brief email to the Independent Journal. "George still owns all the real estate so the ranches stay with him."
The filmmaker apparently will continue studying the merits of a housing complex for low-income seniors at Grady Ranch.
Marin Community Foundation CEO Thomas Peters said that "thanks to Mr. Lucas's remarkable generosity, the foundation's preparatory work on developing affordable housing on the Grady Ranch site is right on target." Peters added that "letters soliciting statements of interest and qualifications from a number of the area's top housing organizations are in process, and we continue to be most grateful for the opportunity to jointly address one of the county's most poignant needs.
