The refreshment stand will be at the corner of Pacific Wharf, as seen in this recently released concept art. It’s owned by and named after the repair technician who maintains the floating wind turbine, resembling a giant koi fish, that sits atop the structure.

The Pacific Wharf bridge was recently painted International Orange. It will eventually get torii gate towers to become the San Fransokyo Gate Bridge.

The view across the wharf hasn’t changed much in recent weeks.
