Oracle Arena versus Chase Center

Parking Lot

In today's Chronicle, John King praises the design of the Oracle Arena that the Golden State Warriors are about to abandon. The article's hed: A look at why pro basketball and Oracle Arena were a perfect fit.

King doesn't mention another important "fit" that Oracle has always had for the Warriors: the massive parking lot right next to a freeway, as opposed to the new Chase Center, which will have only 950 parking spaces for an arena with 18,000 seats.

Chase Center: A parking ban and a cluster fuck.

I never ever have been a fan of John King. He get's a hard on for anything above 400 feet in height, like the monsters going up on So. Van Ness and Mission...just 50 feet from 40 foot residential units. He is not a design critic, he is an advocate for projects having really adverse effects on people having to live around them. Hell he doesn't live next the projects he advocates and loves so much.
