Warriors’ new arena designs bring in San Francisco skyline, waterfront

The Golden State Warriors have unveiled designs for their proposed new arena, and while the arena itself is of a standard form (unlike some recent ideas), its aesthetics set it apart from any other gym in the league.

The $1 billion project, designed by the architectural firm of Snøhetta & AECOM, incorporates the sweep of the San Francisco skyline, the waterfront and the Bay Bridge in its design. An enormous window on one side of the arena looks out on the bridge, and allows visitors at the surrounding park a look inside, though presumably without a direct angle on the action. The adjacent waterfront will include a cruise-ship berth. The entire structure will be about the height of a 12-story building to minimize impact on views of the bay.

The project still has numerous regulatory hurdles to clear, but the team hopes to have it open for the start of the 2017-18 NBA season.
