In this photo taken Jan. 24, 2018, Golden State Warriors President and COO Rick Welts looks out at Chase Center under construction in San Francisco. Standing in the rain seven stories above the concrete, construction workers, steel and mud, Rick Welts is beaming at an arena project that is absolutely his baby. The Warriors COO has been entrusted by owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber to be the unofficial foreman as Chase Center goes up in the Mission Bay district of San Francisco for a scheduled opening of late summer 2019. And with a goal of becoming one of the top notch entertainment venues in the world, right up with The O2 in London and Madison Square Garden for attracting the best music shows.
