it looks pretty sick im not gonna lie.

i'd like to know this : if there going to build the stadium on that parking lot, they have to tear down their headquarters (look at the video). So why exactly are they expending it right now ??? Sounds pretty suspect to me. Is this well planned or is this just a fun video to make us think the project is ready on paper (while it's not in fact) ?
Any suggestions from you guys ?

The headquarters won't be torn down at all, it's current location puts it directly adjacent to the stadium. You can see it in this picture, the white building to the lower right of the stadium. Centennial Boulevard will be scrapped though.

If two sides were identical to each other, I think more people will like it.

It is symmetrical if you mirror the stadium along the transverse axis rather than the longitudinal axis.

bingo!
is there another theme park in the area? i been coming from out of state for a few years via the airport, bart, taxi what ever but this year i visited someone in sacramento and drove down for a game and drove past a theme park that does not resemble what i had thought where we were going into. first issue being, i don't think i drove thru the south bay to get to the game...

all that said, candlestick is a dump...i live in az and i went for whatever niner game i could go to at asu stadium when the cardys were there and that stadium beats candlestick. i graduated from uofa down in tucson and that stadium beats candlestick...i am not doing backflips over the new design but anything, absolutely anything would be better then candlestick...and in saying that, i am saying it in the vein of removing one's self from the history that place holds in all our hearts...

if real estate and team's financial health dictates we have to move to santa clara and have a half bleeped stadium to be relevant again, so be it...the bottom line in any stadium irregardless of its bells and whistles are its luxury suites. its where the team makes money and man oh man can candlestick not have crap for luxury suites...i will never consciously decide to sit in one wheather i can afford it or not but i do know thats what pays the bills so half bleeped or not, build it and i will come....so will all of you....

In my opinion the asymmetry of the design gives it character. Of the new stadiums going up, this is my favorite and I say that completely objectively. The new stadiums in Arizona, Dallas, and NY with their superfluous retractable roofs, shopping malls, glitter concrete, etc do nothing for me despite their billion dollar price tags.

Our stadium is unapologetic about being outdoors and in the elements. Plus, I think it is badass that the 49er headquarters and practice facility are attached, and I personally love that I don't have to go into SF to get to it.

It screams, "This is a football stadium and football will be played here."

so how much of a car drive is it from candlestick to the new location? how far from downtown sf? still fine with the choice, need a new home bigtime....candlestick is way too ghetto, who the heck has a stadium anymore that doesnt have local retail bars and shops close by? i hate the cardinals and frankly i think the new stadium looks like a can of tuna fish with the label peeled off but the local offerings next to it are stellar and frankly before that stadium, alls it was, was farming land...now for those that live on the west side of town, its a definitive place to kick it without driving over to my side in scottsdale
Anyone see the front page article? Jed talks about Oakland a place if santa clara doesn't work.

thats retarded, even if that was an option , he shouldn't have said that to the public
Yea i dont want to get shot at everytime i take my family to a niner game in oakland
