So the stadium framework should be completed sometime early next year. Then it's just all the insides to finish. They're very much expecting it to be no problem finishing by the 2014 season.
The soccer fields will be staying. It was part of the agreement with the city when the plans were put in place.
Great America will be closed on gamedays.
Parking is mostly going to be off site. The suites in the tower will use the parking garage, as well as the main lot of GA. Buses will also be parked in the main GA lot, closest to the amusement park. The large lot connected to the hilton will be partially open to park for regular fans. He said that club seats will be guaranteed a spot in the hilton lot, and then if space is still available, regular fans may be eligible to park there.
All parking closest to the stadium will require a prepaid pass. Most of it will most likely require a season long prepaid pass. These areas are in the lots of the businesses across the street from the hilton and hyatt. I believe there are 3 main lots that are targeted. Negotiations are still ongoing will these businesses, so exact details are not available yet.
Tasman, from Great America Pkwy to past the stadium will be shut down on gamedays. There will be a big football/tailgate atmosphere set up in this area, with food trucks and the whole shebang.
The Montana hotel project is still up in the air. They really don't have inside information on the project. All they know is it's an ongoing possibility. If for some reason it doesn't go through, they would look to make that a parking area for the stadium.
There's going to be an underground tunnel that connects HQ to the 49ers locker room in the stadium.
That's all I can remember, right now. If there are any questions, I'd be happy to do my best to answer.
