San Francisco to build a public restroom at Oracle Arena

San Francisco plans to spend 2 years, $1.7 million to build single-toilet public restroom in front of the Golden State Warriors’ arena, the league said Friday.

It is the second time in five years that San Francisco has decided to build a public restroom for visitors at the iconic Oracle Arena, and the third time in history the team is in a position to do so.

The Warriors have been working to relocate after the arena lease ends for two years. The original plan involved building a parking garage and a larger arena and was opposed by some civic leaders.

The city was granted a permit for the renovation project, which they say will improve the overall quality of life in the city.

The Warriors said this summer they will move to AT&T Park, where they will compete for the future of the NBA’s most lucrative franchise against the Los Angeles Lakers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State Warriors.

San Francisco has not opened a public bathroom since the renovation of the Transamerica Pyramid, which cost $1 million and was opened two years ago.

The restrooms that will be created at the Golden State Warriors’ arena are part of a $17 million renovation of the building to prepare for the Super Bowl.

The building already has one public restroom. It is between the concourse and the locker rooms. Officials said it is not intended for public use.

The new restrooms will require about 6,500 square feet of space.

This new restroom is part of a $17.7 million renovation of City Hall’s grand rotunda, which the team will expand and renovate to include a performance center, a gym and a community garden.

The city hopes to start construction in October, once the Warriors have moved. But construction won’t be started until January after the teams have left the building.

The renovated rotunda has the potential to transform City Hall into a vibrant space filled with art, sculptures and plantings, said San Francisco Public Works Director Paul Rose.

It will also have a unique appearance because it will be lit by natural light. Rose said the lighting design has been modeled after London’s Natural History Museum, which is built on a hill.

“The natural light coming through the windows makes it feel like you’re in a museum or an art gallery, when in reality it’s very much like a stadium in that it’s a space that celebrates our city and our heritage,” Rose said.
