Over the last three years, realtor.com has been a proud sponsor of the Golden State Warriors. Alongside nearly 20,000 fans at Oracle Arena, we’ve created incredible memories: cheering on the team as they’ve won NBA championships, surprising fans with upgraded “prime real estate” seats and other giveaways, and partnering with players to share what home court means to them in a digital series called My Home Court, among other highlights. And while the NBA postseason may be over, the Warriors have much to celebrate as they close a 47-season history at Oracle Arena and prepare for their new home, Chase Center, in San Francisco’s Mission Bay.
What began as a project with 12 cranes in January 2017, Chase Center is nearing completion as the new home court for the Dub Nation. Vice President of Construction and Development, Peter Bryan, recently gave us an exclusive look at the latest construction updates.
The future home of the Warriors opens in just 100 days.

The 11-acre sports and entertainment center was designed with fans at the heart, featuring elements such as interactive installations, best-in-class technology and WiFi (because being able to share your courtside Instagram Story or Facebook Live is important!), a wide range of dining options both inside and outside of the arena showcasing the Bay Area food scene, and much more to be unveiled at its grand opening.
One design feature that is already a key identifying factor of Chase Center is what the Warriors refer to as the Gatehouse. Sitting on the fourth side of Chase Center’s main plaza, it’s an architectural element to enclose the plaza and create an intimate environment for guests. It includes two retail units and stadium seating for 250 guests to enjoy various activities like movie nights or ice skating during the holiday season, all inside the plaza.
At realtor.com, we know moving into a new home is an exciting time and many of the Warriors players have shared in that excitement. During a press conference discussing Chase Center, Warriors superstar Forward Draymond Green said, “It’s the start of some great things.” And while touring the facilities on a site visit, reflected on the journey the team has been on awaiting the completion of the project. Admitting that it gave him the chills, Green shared, “To walk through it and see some of the things they’re doing is spectacular and I’m looking forward to playing here.”
With less than 100 days to go until Chase Center’s completion, final touches are being executed. On Sept. 6, 2019, the arena will have its grand opening hosting a concert for Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony. And what the Dub Nation will surely be most excited about is the Warriors first preseason game on Oct. 5, 2019 at Chase Center. At realtor.com, home is everything. We’ll be ready and waiting. Go Dubs!
