Hope it happens. Seems it would be a few years away from the stadium opening though. Maybe they could get a parking lot built sooner followed by the rest.
Indeed, part of using that land will be for more parking. The 49ers have known all along 10K spots at GA wasn't near enough parking, and the "local office buildings" idea is simply that - and idea, a stop-gap if you will. It hasn't been stated yet, but it's a fair bet that the soccer fields get moved, too, for more "VIP" parking. It might not all happen before opening day 2014, but it will happen. I've long thought the golf course was in jeopardy, and that was BEFORE I knew it was a public/civic course. I'm sure there are far more intelligent people on this site, who live in the area, that have been thinking that golf course was toast since day one of the project becoming reality.
