The Warriors have brought their plans for a new arena in Mission Bay to life with a rendering video launched yesterday at Salesforce's big Dreamforce conference. The video flies down the Mission Bay waterfront to land at the Manica Architecture-designed building. It passes over busy concourses, through surrounding parks, and into the arena itself. You can practically smell the concession stand popcorn in the air. One thing there's no sign of in this dreamy wonderland? Traffic. The Warriors are currently ensnarled in a battle with critics who claim that the arena will bring catastrophic traffic jams to the area, but in the rendering video cars move freely around the stadium despite the crowds thronging in for game day.
