Warriors SF waterfront arena design update

The Warriors NBA team has unveiled new detailed designs for the proposed San Francisco waterfront arena and nearby development. Public hearings in the coming weeks may determine if the arena gets built in the waterfront location or not.

Craig Dykers of architect Snøhetta, which was selected along with AECOM to design the project, said the new plans include a walkway that encircles the pier, more open space on the raised area surrounding the arena, and pedestrian access that continues up the arena itself with a ramp that wraps around the facility.

The design also now incorporates some very large areas of transparent glass that give views out toward the waterfront.
