Levi's Stadium pics and info...

Santa Clara could get a new downtown-style entertainment district right across the street from the under-construction San Francisco 49ers Stadium.

hope they ramp up available flights in and out of SJ airport during the season. I don't wanna have to fly out of SFO after a game.

Well, we do have a WZ tailgate for every game at Candlestick. I think we've been doing it for 6 years, now.




THIS I will certainly have to attend at least once.

One of these days.

I did. It was sooo fun.

always thought the city golf course's days were numbered...however it is on top of former landfill so there's probably tons of environmental impact and earthquake studies that'll have to be done if anything is developed on that land (IMO, more parking/tailgating areas would be nice and preferable to an entertainment/Santana Row-type district, though probably something incorporating all three would be done...shoot put a bigger casino matrix or whatever there while you're at it)

Why do you think the city's golf course day's were numbered? I don't live there, so I don't know.

I meant to say once the new stadium got the green light and construction commenced, I had the feeling the city-owned golf course's days were numbered. Apart from the misgivings concerning being built atop reclaimed landfill, it's pretty obvious with a new stadium on the way and relatively (to candlestick) less parking/tailgating areas... (though yes, surrounding office buildings will allow their lots to be used on gamedays, we all know it wont be the same and will probably involve restrictions on drinking, BBQing, etc.) ...It seemed inevitable, with all that green open space across the street owned by SC, the golf course land would eventually have attracted potential developement attention. It's all a matter of $$$ frankly...will parking fees and retailer/business rental fees generate more revenue than a municipal golf course and which option has the less upkeep costs? If the EI/earthquake study shows the land is feasible for developement it's a no-brainer for SC. If the golf course was privately owned and world class or even poshy like a country club, there might've been more hurdles to clear for developement, but frankly I get the feeling the city of SC will be glad to turn that land into a moneymaker, and I don't see many people lamenting the SCG&T club's demise. There are plenty of golf courses in the South Bay.

Wow.

Nice.

That'll change things supstantially. MORE hotels. MORE restraunts. MORE bars. Going to a game now will be totally different with places to eat and such all around the stadium.

Very nice.

Reminds me of the Inner Harbor area of Baltimore. I was back there in 2006 and is was a very cool area. The Ravens and the Orioles have adjacent parks and the area has really built up/been renewed around them.

um. wow.

I was just thinking the exact. same. thing.

LOL.

My Father lives in Northern Virginia and we've been up to the Inner Harbor a few times. Took the boat out to see Fort McHenry a few years back (where the National Anthem was written).

We had a sales meeting in the old converted brick warehouse that is behind the right field fence. We could sit in our conference room and watch the groundskeepers preparing the field and the players go through their pre-game routine. It was very cool.

Santa Clara could create a major entertainment draw if they can get past all the enviro stuff that will have to be settled.

Dunno if anything like that us feasible...site is about 1-2 miles from the bayshore, but those not from the area should probably be informed most if the southern end if SF bay is relatively shallow wetland and saltflats...don't foresee the added cost of dredging the area to create a marina-type developement feasible (digging up and destabilizing reclaimed landfill vs stabilizing and developing atop landfill)

closest thing they might be able to do is a Venetian-type mini canal district utilizing San Tomas Aquino creek...

I don't think he meant the water portion of it. I think he just meant the mall area right next to the stadium.

I could be wrong tho...that was how I took it.

all that marsh/wetland area is protected environment eco system blah blah..no way they can touch that.

This new DT area will be awesome..i hope it happens soon !
That would be so awesome if this happens. Not only could they bring in shops/restaurants/bars, but there is plenty of acreage to add some much needed parking for the stadium, too.
