Yes! It’s about time we had another great concert venue in the City and I’m really looking forward to it.

Another?

I wasn't aware we had a "great (pop) concert venue" of this size. The Civic Auditoreum is sort of a joke in modern terms and where else is there that can hold these vast numbers? Moscone? Cow Palace? Niether is really very suitable as shown by the fact that big touring bands have skipped San Francisco.

Aside from concerts, I've heard that this venue will also be used by very tall men playing a game involving balls and hoops.

SBC/Pac Bell/ATT Park ain't exactly a good venue for when it's rainy or cold, something not unfamiliar in SF.
Will there be a transfer station for the new T- line/ central subway and BART for those coming from east bay to get to the new arena?

Powell St Station will be connected to Union Sq station by underground passage, so to answer your question, yes.

Another argument is that open air venues aren't exactly acoustically conducive to concerts, besides the point that blaring music annoys the fuck out of the neighbors. This arena will be much much better than anything else available in SF. And the fact that the taxpayers didn't have to contribute anything for it is a huge win.

I've lived within a few blocks of the stadium for some time. It is harder to hear the concerts than you might think. It might be different in higher floors of buildings literally right across from the park, but I think you knew what you were in for if you rented, bought there.

Honestly, fans being rowdy past 11:30 or midnight is the only thing people I've talked to have had a problem with, and that's rare. Usually a call to the police for a noise complaint sorts that one out pretty quick.

Anyway, yes, the new stadium will certainly be one of the choice venues in SF.

AT&T Park has no roof. It is an outdoor venue. It is not comparable to other indoor venues. It may work when the weather's good which is about 6 or 7 months in San Francisco. That isn't good enough for a "world class city". Period.

a beginning of the sense of what it will feel like to walk past it

these are from last weekend...

the curve of glass on the backside of the southern office building



similar vantage point, but looking west up 16th St. this little backwater dead-end will soon see a dramatic jump in activity level



turning around 180 degrees, the east end of 16th is being carved out, to connect it to Terry Francois



looking east from Third and 16th St



looking south up Third



looking across the fourth of the Three Corners, the currently inactive one which will eventually see the Mission Bay/UCSF definition of a 'tower'

T-minus-one-year-and-one-week



(not sure what that cylindrical frame thing is for, but it seems built to support a lot of weight. appears to be part of the future oval-shaped Gatehouse, if that is its final location. no idea.)

its to support the ampitheater that will be built into the gatehouse, which will also serve as two cafes.
