New renderings for the west side of the proposed Golden State Warriors Arena to rise in Mission Bay provide some fresh perspective on the office and retail components of the development, along with the first detailed designs for the project’s Main Plaza fronting Third Street.
As designed by Pfau-Long Architecture and AE3 Partners, the two office buildings on the northwest and southwest corners of the site would rise to a height of 160 feet, with green roofs and patios atop 90-foot podiums. The buildings would provide space for over 2,000 full-time employees.
Between the two office buildings, eleven (11) restaurant and retail spaces would surround the Main Plaza.
And the main plaza itself has been designed with a core element which could shift from turf, to hardwood, to granite, to ice as the seasons and needs changed.
The Warriors will present their strategies for managing arena crowds at the end of the month, and the draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the project is slated to be published later this spring.
