Google’s mystery barge is heading on a short cruise to comply with an order requiring it to move from its current home on a San Francisco Bay island.
The agency leasing the Treasure Island space where the barge is being built says the four-story vessel is bound for the Port of Stockton, about 80 miles east of San Francisco.
The Treasure Island Development Authority says it has been notified the barge will move by March 7.
The barge is leaving because of a Jan. 31 regulatory order concluding that Google didn’t have the proper building permits at Treasure Island.

Google says the barge will become a floating technology center once it’s done.
