Having unveiled the site plans for the Golden State Warriors’ proposed 12-acre sports and entertainment center to rise in Mission Bay last month, we now have the concept designs for the development to share.
As designed by Snohetta, the 18,000-seat arena is sited on the eastern portion of the Mission Bay site, with two office buildings on the western corners along Third. Up to 90,000 square feet of retail would be concentrated within the ground floor of the office buildings and in a Market Hall along Terry Francois Boulevard at the east end of South Street.
The Southeast Plaza at the corner of Terry Francois Boulevard and 16th Street would overlook the new 5.5-acre Bayfront Park to be built between the Warrior’s arena and the San Francisco Bay.
And in total, the Warriors’ proposed arena development includes over three acres of plazas, landscaping and other public space on the Mission Bay Blocks 29-32 site, with its Main Plaza (which would be roughly the size of the paved portion of Union Square, or Rockefeller Plaza in New York), behind a little “Gatehouse” building along Third.
