But as Zilchster pointed out, I hope the new facility has showers. The existing UA lounge has no showers.
Well, we won't know for certain until sometime in 2018 as United just further delayed the opening of the new lounge.

In the meantime SQ passengers will be directed to the UA Global First Lounge.

Closure of San Francisco SilverKris Lounge for renovations

"The Singapore Airlines SilverKris Lounge in San Francisco will be closed for renovations starting from 01 October 2017. As part of the renovations, Singapore Airlines will begin a transition to a newly constructed, shared lounge facility operated by our Star Alliance partner, United Airlines. It is scheduled to open in early 2018.
During the closure period, eligible customers will be invited to the following lounges:

First Class, Business Class Customers: United Airlines International Departure Lounge (located in the G Concourse between gates 98-100)
PPS Club, Star Alliance Gold members: Any United Club lounges in Terminal 3
As these are shared lounges, no boarding announcements will be made. Customers are advised to be aware of the boarding time indicated on their boarding pass."

The lounge will make space for the future Polaris Lounge by United, which should be a nice upgrade. However, in the meantime please share your experience about any good alternatives?

ohhh gosh, that means no lounge ? terminal 3 is a domestic terminal isn't it ? with the double TSA lines, might as well sit on the floor....

If you're on a business or first class ticket you'll have access to the former United First Class lounge in the International Terminal (near gate G98), which is serving as a temporary first and business class lounge. However, they are not accommodating *A Gold customers, or their own United Club members who fly in economy.

For the time being, *A Gold and UC members will have to track back to any of the United Club locations in Terminal 3.

Absolutely right. Only first and business class passengers allowed entry as there are a number of departures at a late timing so the lounge was full of SQ and EVA passengers when I was there Thursday night. No shower facilities either but the furniture is nicely spaced out which meant it was nowhere as crammed as the SQ lounge though not allowing *A Gold members definitely helped reduce the crowding situation which is a nice change. I typically stay out of lounges as it's uncomfortably crowded. Time to raise the bar for *A Gold qualification.
