Examiner article about emphasizing public transit for accessing arena events.

I'm not clear on the accuracy or meaningfulness of this stat:

Quote:
That makes 2,900 parking spaces total for up to 18,000 attendees, while the median attendance of Warrior’s [sic] games is roughly 9,000 people, Johnston said.
this says attendance is regularly over 18000/game

What is not always mentioned is that the average parking space holds between 2 and 3 people (not many people drive solo to sports events). So those 2,900 spots will fit at least 6,000 people, so its the other 12k that have to be split between the double-sized trains, ferries, bikes, walking and ubers/lyfts. I think they will manage just fine.

In some college towns there are 50k, even 75k+ people that go to football games and they manage traffic.

Warriors fell on the court, but franchise is booking hotel, apartment plans at Chase Center
By Ron Leuty – Reporter, San Francisco Business Times
9 hours ago

The Golden State Warriors are in the process of asking San Francisco city officials for permission to move forward with plans for a 142-room hotel topped by 24 market-rate apartments connected to the franchise's nearly $2 billion arena development, co-owner and CEO Joe Lacob said . . . .

"It's right on the schedule that we (thought), but we were deciding" whether to build the hotel/apartments, he said.

The bay-side site at Terry Francois Boulevard and South Street previously was earmarked for 24,000 square feet of retail in a structure rising only 41 feet, but Lacob said the foundation was constructed to accommodate Mission Bay's 160-foot height limit while the Warriors organization evaluated whether to move forward with the hotel plans.

"We just over-engineered (the foundation) …," Lacob said in April. "It's called thinking ahead."

The two office buildings on the Third Street side of the project are 160 feet tall, or 11 floors. Both buildings, ownership of which is split between the Warriors, Alexandria Real Estate Equities Inc. and ride-hailing technology company Uber Technologies Inc., are fully leased to Uber for 20 years . . . .

Assuming Uber is around in 20 years . . . .

They used to say the same about Apple... Uber (or whatever it evolves into) will be around for a long, long time.

I hope you are right, but Wall Street is distinctly dubious because nobody, inclduing Uber management, has yet outlined a plan toward profitability.

The better analogy than Apple, and the one everybody who is bullish on Uber sites, is Amazon.com which lost money for years and years. But there the path to make money was fairly clear--raise prices a bit, especially on the Prime memberships which most people believed could be done without much loss of membership numbers. But Uber is different--Uber competes with taxis in several ways but price is one (and it also competes with Lyft, of course and even public transit). The betting is that the demand for Uber services is more elastic than the demand for Amazon Prime memberships and that use of Uber, even among those who continue to use it some, would fall off significantly if it cost more.

Signage being installed. It's nearing completion for its September 6 Metallica opening.

Here's a sneak peek of the iconic art sculpture designed by world-renowned artist Olafur Eliasson that is said to rival that of Chicago's "Cloud Gate" :

It's going to be hard to top The Bean in my opinion. But I hope they prove me wrong

Muni will be free to Chase Center events

South St is now 'Warriors Way' (which eliminates the potential confusion surrounding 'South' St being on the north side of the arena)

^^How are they going to pull that off--they can't even get about half the riders on the lines going through the TL to pay at all. Seems like they will have to make the T-line free to everybody or nobody. Please don't tell me they are going to have fare inspectors checking "proof of payment" after the cars pass Chase Center.
