Scheduled to be presented to the Citizens Advisory Committee this week, Snøhetta’s preliminary design for the proposed Golden State Warriors arena to be built upon Piers 30-32 in San Francisco have just been released (click any of the images to enlarge).
The proposed arena would rise 135 feet (AT&T Park is 183 feet to the light standard, 132 feet to the top of the seating bowl) and seat 17,500 (Oracle Arena seats 19,596).
Other key arena facts and the site’s open space overview:
Venue Footprint: 170,000 square feet
Venue Total Square Footage: 740,000 square feet
Community Event Room: 10,000 square feet
Retail: 105,000 square feet
Parking Spaces: approximately 630 covered by tiered landscaping (Piers 30-32 currently parks 1,500 cars out in the open)
The Warriors are committed to no less than 50 percent of the site being dedicated to open space (333,000 square feet out of 548,500 square feet as proposed) and the site will include a ferry and water taxi landing, a fire boat station, and a kayak launch.
The Warriors are budgeting $100 million to fix the piers and another $500 million to build the arena with a tight timeline to get the ball rolling (or bouncing as the case may be).
