Warriors Shifting S.F. Arena Plans To New Site Near AT&T Park
The Warriors today formally announced that they have scrapped their previously desired arena site at Piers 30-32 in S.F. and instead have opted for a new location on 3rd St. south of AT&T Park. Warriors co-Owner Joe Lacob said that "spiraling costs and political pushback presented too many obstacles to overcome within the desired time frame." He added that the goal is to have the new site "ready to open for the 2018-19 season" (CSNBAYAREA.com, 4/21).
The team released a video announcement about the purchase of the land in Mission Bay and its vision for a new venue.
