Levi's Stadium pics and info...

All the details you could ever want about the design of the new Santa Clara Stadium...

It looks like they actually moved the site tho. It was supposed to be on the other side of that creek (the treeline in the lower left of the first pic). They moved it right next to the existing 49ers Facility....4949 Centennial. It now looks like one big complex.

I know there are alot of people who don't like it because it kinda bland, but I personally like it. It reminds me of Lincoln Financial in Philli.

Below is the presentation to the city.

EDIT: Looks like that link is now dead. I found something similar, but not the exact same PDF...

EDIT AGAIN: Found a Page with a number of Site Plans. Very cool, but hard to read.

What happens when it rains?
I'm a former San Francisco snob who moved to San Jose a while back.

Let me tell you guys (for anyone who has never been to the area)...it's beautiful in Santa Clara 340 days out of the year. This is going to be a great location.

And it will be a MUCH easier task exiting the stadium & getting on the freeway. It's not in a corner, like Candlestick.

Go Niners!

They get wet.
Thats an ugly ass stadium. All the money in the bay area and they cant come up with is that ugly ass thing. Look at recent stadiums built and we get that.

The problem is that those are all built in CHEAP areas. SC ain't cheap.

We may not be able to get the 8th wonder of the world, but it will still be 100 times better than the 'Stick.

I love the 'Stick, but its time has come.

EDIT: oops...except that last one...lol....but they are BOTH using it.

I like it, it reminds me of a cross between Lincoln Financial Field and Soldier Field.
Now that's one ugly stadium.

Ya.

I think its kinda cool too that the training facility and the stadium are essentially the same site not.

That area in the upper right is actually a kids soccer area.
Looks like a college stadium. lol no creative thinking what so ever.

Don't worry. It's waterproof.

I know alot of people think that....but I think your just too used to seeing the new Space Age stuff in Dallas and Phoenix.

Ya know what...we don't NEED that stuff. Phoenix is the desert and Dallas is humid as hell.

The best part about a stadium in Nor Cal is the Weather.

I like this stadium alot because it puts whats most important first...Fan Experience...not looking pretty in pictures and paintings.

Ya know what pretty? A full stadium and the Niners bound to the Bay Area for another 30 or 40 years.
I think it's great, we're in california why the hell do we need a dome? seriously? I wish there was a better way to see the exterior though

Having an open air stadium is fine and dandy. I agree the weather allows for it but I also think the design in general is too bland.
