The Warriors Released Designs For Their New Stadium On The San Francisco Bay, And They Look Awesome

The Warriors have plans to build a brand-new arena at the foot of the San Francisco Bay Bridge. Their contract with their current digs in Oakland, the Oracle Arena, will be up in 2017, and that’s when their new place is slated to be finished. And if the final product is anything like the designs released today, this place is going to be awesome.

The stadium and surrounding area — including a waterfront park — emphasis clean, open spaces, with expansive views both into and out of the arena. The arena will be publicly funded to the tune of $500 million, but it looks like the money will be well spent. The bragging rights to the league’s coolest stadium should not come cheaply.

Check out our favorite mock-ups below, and head over to the project’s official site for more:

    The Warriors are in the second round of the playoffs and sellout nearly every night, also have a fan base that is out of this world. So why the did the NBA endorse them leaving Oakland.

    I can’t believe the people of San Francisco are going to let them deface their bay with that ugly piece of crap…

  • not a fan

    I agree with BeggarBoy. As someone who’s lived here for almost 4 years now, it’s gonna stick out like a sore thumb and ruin the charm of the bay. YIKES, hopefully ppl wake up and realize this looks like shit. Cool arena to be sure, but to put it RIGHT by the Bay Bridge is silly. Move down a few piers.

    In a few years, the oceans’ rise from global warming will turn this waterfront into a reef. If San Francisco survives at all, it will be in the hilly areas. That’s where they should put the arena.

    Their going to have to park in the baseball lot and have to walk a mile to the arena.

    The same reason the Niners left your city. Their stadium was crap.
