Joint Venture partners Clark Construction Group and Mortenson Construction have been selected by GSW Arena LLC (GSW) to build the Golden State Warriors’ new sports and entertainment venue, Chase Center, in Mission Bay, San Francisco. Chase Center is scheduled to open in time for the 2019-20 NBA season. GSW plans to build its new state-of-the-art venue on an 11-acre site in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood. The project gained approvals late last year, and was unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors in December.
The privately-financed project includes a state-of the-art 18,000-seat arena, two office buildings, 100,000 square feet of mixed-use/retail space, and underground parking. More than three acres – 30 percent of the site – will be plazas, landscaping and other public spaces.
Local business and worker participation will be a priority for the construction team. Mortenson | Clark is committed to meeting San Francisco’s Office of Community Investment and Infrastructure’s (OCII) goals during the construction phase, which include 50 percent SBE firm participation and 50 percent local workforce construction-hiring.
As construction begins, Mortenson | Clark will work closely with the city, OCII, and the community to keep local workers and businesses – and the community as a whole – at the forefront of the project.
With the support of GSW, Mortenson | Clark will use outreach initiatives like CityBuild to develop a comprehensive training program for San Francisco residents.
The design phase is currently underway as Mortenson | Clark and GSW Arena’s larger design group work as an integrated team to deliver the project.
