It looks like "Star Wars" creator George Lucas won't get to build a museum near San Francisco's Crissy Field.

Monday afternoon, the Presidio Trust voted down three proposals to develop the eight acre site.

The waterfront property is currently occupied by The Sports Basement store.

Other groups wanted to build a cultural center and an environmental institute.

The Presidio Trust plans to offer Lucas another site near the Presidio's main post to build his museum.
