Mayor Lee’s Statement on OCII Approval of Golden State Warriors Event Center In Mission Bay

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 4, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Mayor Edwin M. Lee today issued the following statement on the Commission on Community Investment and Infrastructure (OCII) unanimously certifying the Final Subsequent Environmental Impact Report and approving the Golden State Warriors Event Center and Mixed-Use Development on Blocks 29-32 in Mission Bay South:

“We have reached yet another important milestone on the path to bring the NBA champion Golden State Warriors back home to San Francisco. This rigorous and comprehensive study demonstrates the commitment of the City, the Warriors, UCSF, and the community to make sure the arena works for everyone. I thank the Commission for approving this important project and moving it forward.

With support from UCSF, the biotech community, the Mission Bay Citizens Advisory Committee, our labor partners, and others, the new privately-financed Warriors event center will provide year-round jobs for our residents, revenue for more transportation and open space in the neighborhood and revenue for all types of City services.

The Warriors will create a new legacy and inspire a new generation of fans when they return to San Francisco. Our Mission Bay is an incredible innovation ecosystem and a hub for technology, healthcare and more. But, it will not be complete until the Warriors return home to a brand new state-of-the-art event center.”

The Golden State Warriors Event Center and Mixed-Use Development on Blocks 29-32 in Mission Bay South will be moving through additional regulatory approvals in the coming weeks.
