GSW Arena LLC has announced that Gensler has been added to the team of architects designing the Chase Center, the new sports and entertainment arena to be built in San Francisco's Mission Bay neighborhood.
Gensler is charged with designing all interior architecture, inclusive of all concourses, concession areas, sponsor zones, and retail spaces, as well as the premium clubs, suites, administrative offices, and locker rooms that highlight the building.
Scheduled to open in 2019, the 18,000-seat Chase Center, to be the new home of the Golden State Warriors, will anchor 11 acres of restaurants, cafes, offices, public plazas, and other amenities, such as a new 5.5-acre public waterfront park. When complete, it will be the only privately-financed facility of its kind built on private property in the modern era.
Recent Gensler and Gensler Sports renovation projects include Terminals 2 and 3 at San Francisco International Airport, FirstEnergy Stadium for the Cleveland Browns, and BMO Field for Toronto FC. Gensler Sports is also the lead designer for the $250 million home of the MLS' expansion Los Angeles Football Club.
