Snøhetta and AECOM have released updated renderings of the Golden State Warriors’ Stadium, which is scheduled to debut on a preeminent San Francisco waterfront site for the 2017-18 NBA basketball season. Located on Piers 30-32, just walking distance from the downtown Financial District and easily accessed by a variety of public transportation, the 728,000 square foot arena will please the masses with its expansive open space, Bay Bridge views, and amenities. Not only will the 125-foot, disk-shaped stadium cater to Warriors’ needs, but it will also provide 90,000 square feet of retail space, ferry and cruise ship access, along with a waterside fire station. In addition, the 18,000-seat venue will also accommodate for music concerts, conventions and other cultural events.
“From the beginning, we’ve said this arena will be world-class, incorporating the best in design, technology and sustainability,” said Peter Guber, Co-Executive Chairman of the Warriors. “Snøhetta and AECOM have done a masterful job designing an arena and public space that will serve as the model for a 21st century digital sports and entertainment center.”
“We believe our new design lives up to the importance of this incredible waterfront site and fuses together the vision of the Golden State Warriors with the landscape of the bay and the community input we’ve heard over the past several months,” said Craig Dykers, Architect and Founding Partner of Snøhetta. “When people view the new designs, they will see a place that provides for everyone: fans, pedestrians, bicyclists, tourists, local residents and the diverse community of San Francisco.”
