Mayor Lee’s Statement on Golden State Warriors Arena in Mission Bay
Mayor Edwin M. Lee today issued the following statement on the Golden State Warriors’ new arena in Mission Bay:
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome the Golden State Warriors back home to San Francisco with a brand-new, privately-financed arena in Mission Bay.
This new site on privately-owned land in Mission Bay will provide a spectacular location and a more certain path to bring a transit-rich, state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena to San Francisco. The new Mission Bay arena will generate new jobs and millions of dollars in new tax revenue for our City.
This is a big win for our City, and I thank Warriors owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber for their continued commitment to San Francisco. Go Warriors!”
