At last week's Mission Bay Citizens Advisory Committee, Manica Architecture unveiled a new set of renderings that zoom in on the street level around the planned Warriors Arena. The design is still a work in progress, notes
Pacific Waterfront Partners Warriors spokesman PJ Johnston. "As part of our community planning process, we provide regular updates to the CAC and the public as the design evolves and is refined," he says. This new set of images shows the plaza outside the stadium entrance and hints at some of the food offerings to come—perhaps a food hall, as the rendered signage suggests? ("The food hall concept is … very conceptual at this point," Johnston tells us.)
Manica's big reveal of the design in December focused more on sweeping aerial views, and the new image set shows the architects working out the street level. As you recall, the proposal includes a 3.2 acres of plazas and public space, as well as a five-and-a-half-acre waterfront park. We're kind of itching to see that park.
The developers are still working on entitlements for the project, and expect to wrap up approvals in the fall. After about two years of construction, the Warriors would open the arena for the 2018-19 NBA season.
