Google has confirmed to San Francisco authorities that it plans to move the incomplete Google Barge project to a new location within the next month, reports CNET. It seems the California state government was not so pleased to have Google’s construction project sitting in idle at a pier without the proper permits and offered the company an ultimatum: file the proper papers or move on.

Google chose the latter. Government officials were told last week that Google would be moving the barge to an undisclosed new location at some point within the next thirty days.

The barge has been sitting idle since construction came to a halt after several government groups voiced various issues with the design of the project. When completed, it will serve as a floating showroom for various experimental projects, as shown in the image above via KPIX.

The top deck of the barge will apparently serve as a dedicated “party deck.” All work and no play, you know…
