Warriors’ SF Arena Design Slimmed-Down And Opened Up

With parks, plazas and paths along the bay, the open space for the proposed Warriors Arena in San Francisco has grown from half of the project area to 60 percent in “Design 3.0.”

The slimmed-down design lowers the 18,064 seat arena’s height from 135 to 125 feet, reduces the proposed retail and event center area along the Embarcadero by 30,000 square feet, and expands the open space to 7.6 acres (up by nearly an acre).

The entrance to the arena’s 500 space garage has been moved “mid-pier” to between Bryant and Beale and the height of the roof over the practice facility, parking garage and fire station on the northern end of the Piers 30/32 site has been lowered from 55 to 37 feet.
