SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) - A milestone in the construction of San Francisco’s Chase Center will be reached this week and a ‘topping out’ ceremony will be held Friday.
Golden State Warriors will join all 1,200-plus construction workers involved at their new 18,000-seat, $1 billion arena located at 3rd and South streets in Mission Bay.
The topping out is a tradition in construction projects that symbolizes the completion of steel erection at the arena, according to Warriors spokesperson Lisa Goodwin. The final beam will be put in place at the ceremony held from 12:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Warriors President and Chief Operating Officer Rick Welts will speak at the ceremony.
The Chase Center is considered a legacy project of late Mayor Ed Lee. The project is slated to be completed by summer of 2019.
