Here on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay, Google is being told to move its mystery barge.

State of California officials say the tech giant needs to move the structure by Friday, as it does not have the right building permits to keep it parked where it is.

But where Google is going to move the barge—which the company says will be an "interactive space" to showcase its various technologies, products and innovative projects—is still a bit of a mystery.

There was speculation the barge might be headed to Stockton, Calif., but the director of the Port of Stockton, Richard Achieris, told CNBC that Google has never contacted him. Achieris did say, however, that Stockton would be glad to take Google's barge if offered.

Local officials say that Google could possibly end up keeping the barge on Treasure Island, but it's going to need to have its paperwork in order, and quickly.
