Google Barge on ‘Hiatus’ Amid Coast Guard Concerns

Google BargeWhether it’s a Google Glass store or a showroom for all things Google X, one thing is clear: No one will be visiting Google Barge anytime soon. The once-mysterious barge, currently sitting idle alongside a pier at Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay, is officially “on hiatus,” CNET has learned. And while Google is likely still planning on completing the project, it probably won’t be finished until well into 2014, long after it was originally supposed to be up and running. “A variety of senior BCDC staff members have met with Google’s representatives to learn about its plans,” said Brad McCrea, director of regulatory affairs for the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. “We have learned that the barge is still under construction, albeit in a hiatus, and likely will not be completed until late spring 2014. In addition, Google is still exploring options for how to use the barge when it is completed.”
