I like that they are going the Ford Field route of putting the suites on one side mostly. It certainly has a unique exterior persona. I was afraid they might try and put on a retractable roof, or something like that, so I'm glad to see the open design.

Considering it's location in Silicon Valley does anyone want to guess what soulless corporation will buy up the naming rights?

$937 million??? That's far more than the estimated cost for the London Olympic Stadium, if you convert US Dollars to British Pounds.

EDIT: and almost as much as the New Dallas Cowboys Stadium, while the new 49ers stadium is much more basic in its design...

Looks like it will be steel frame, not to mention higher labor and land costs in Cali.

JerryWorld should cost a lot more, maybe even double what it was if in New York, but it was built in Texas so you had cheap land, cheap labor and the structure is steel reinforced concrete. There are actually plants in the DFW metroplex and throughout Texas, not to mention the cheaper cost of transporting goods in Texas.

the gap is there for the same reason they are in Cleveland Browns stadium; to steer notorious winds that get trapped in bowled stadiums in that area. Read this on the 49ers forum, that wherever their stadium ended up they didn't want it to have the swirling wind that Monster Park has.

Terribly ugly with the suites all on one side.

From what I read, the taxpayers will probably reject the proposal, especially if it goes to election while we are still in the recession.

Does the design rule out the possibility of an athletics track if SF ever bids for the Olympic Games again?

I don't especially like it although I find it very original and love the fact it's asymetrical. The option to expand it to 75k is great.

Weren't they told that if they left SF the city would municipalize the name "49ers"?

The stadium is not in or near San Francisco, so they wouldn't bother. The IOC had an issue before with so much of the "San Francisco" bid being far away.

I am not a big fan of having all the suites on one side. Ascetically, it looks ugly. I understand wanting to eliminate as much space between tiers, but it just looks ugly. Similar to how Ford Field is one of the most sterile and boring looking stadiums around in my eyes.

I'll believe it when I see it. I still don't think Santa Clara's residents will approve of the measure. Besides, the 49ers belong in San Francisco.

Bland Stadium, though I do like the green roof.
