Warriors Arena Project

Plaza Program

Project Overview

In 2012, San Francisco began actively working with the Golden State Warriors to develop a world-class, state-of-the-art event center and mixed-use development project at Piers 30-32. In April 2014, the Warriors purchased an undeveloped 11-acre lot on Mission Bay Blocks 29-32. The project completed the public approval process in December 2015.

In addition to the creation of an estimated 3,000+ permanent jobs and 2,500+ temporary/construction jobs, the project will generate hundreds of millions of dollars in new economic growth and activity for the City as well as over $14 million in annual tax receipts and help to accelerate development of an area of Mission Bay that has been dormant for decades.

The Golden State Warriors arena plans to open in time for the 2019-2020 basketball season.
