SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A state agency says Google must move its mystery
barge from a construction site on an island in the middle of the San
Francisco Bay because the permits are not in order.
Bay Conservation and Development Commission executive director Larry
Goldzband said Monday that his agency received multiple complaints about
the construction of the floating, four-story building.
planning documents submitted to the port last fall showed plans for
Google to build an interactive space for people to learn about
It had been speculated that the barge would be a party boat or store for Google to sell its Internet-connected glasses.
says the construction was not authorized by the agency, and the
Treasure Island Development Authority which allowed the project could
face fines and enforcement proceedings.
Goldzband says Google can resolve the issue by moving the barge to one
of the fully permitted construction facilities in the San Francisco Bay.
