Football stadium plans unveiled in San Francisco
While the San Francisco 49ers have been quietly making plans for a new stadium in suburban Santa Clara, the City of San Francisco yesterday unveiled this plan for a complete overaul of Hunters Point and Candlestick Point, which is the current location of Candlestick, err... 3Com, err... Monster Park, err.... San Francisco Stadium. Included in the proposal would be thousands of new homes, retail, and public spaces and parks. And a commitment for open parking to keep an active and vibrant tailgate scene.
Mayor Gavin Newsom apparently wants to keep the heat on the 49ers to remain in the city. Whatever the outcome, 2012 seems to be the year everyone is circling for the replacement of their current stadium, which we have ranked as the worst venue in the NFL.
