CNET: Google’s mysterious barge to be moved to new moor in Stockton, California

In a Wednesday report, CNET said that Google's mysterious barge currently anchored at Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay will soon be moved to a new moor --- the Port of Stockton, California.

The port where the barge will now be moored is an inland deepwater port on the San Joaquin River, and it connects to the northern reaches of the San Francisco Bay via the Sacramento River.

The CNET report, citing the information shared by an official from the Treasure Island Development Authority (TIDA), revealed that Google will likely remove the barge from Treasure Island to the Port of Stockton "as early as next week."

The looming change in location for anchoring Google's mysterious barge comes after an earlier-this-month order by the TIDA officials. The officials ordered Google to remove the barge from Treasure Island because the company had failed to secure the required construction permits in San Francisco.

The mysterious barge is Google's floating construction project which was first noticed in the San Francisco Bay in late October 2013. Though Google initially refused to comment on the barge, it announced in November that the barge was an "interactive space" on which the company planned to showcase its latest technological advancements, such as its Glass wearable computing device, self-driving cars, and other avant-garde products.
