Warriors Have Purchased 12 Acres Of Land In San Francisco’s Mission Bay Area

Golden StateThe Golden State Warriors have decided to abandon their idea on a new arena on a pier overlooking San Francisco.

Instead, the Warriors announced that they have purchased 12 acres in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood, where the team intends to build a new state-of-the-art arena.

The plan is to have this new arena open for the 2018-19 season, Lacob told CSNBayArea.com.

“We believe Mission Bay is a perfect fit,” Lacob said in a released statement. “It is a wonderful inland site in a dynamic part of the City that is convenient for fans from all over the Bay Area. We are buying private property, but the city will also get a new 5 ½ – acre waterfront park. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
