Eighteen months later?
I don't think I've ever seen this much progress on a project in California in such a short time! Supposedly, the stadium is scheduled to be completed in time for the 2014 season, followed by opportunities for Super Bowls and other events.
Parking is a big weakness for this stadium. There is almost no parking on the stadium property. But let's not bother with details right now.
The jury is still out as to whether this will improve home values near the stadium. Some say it will bolster values, and other say it will drag them down. If this project is handled like AT&T Ballpark by the San Francisco Giants, values will soar due to ongoing redevelopment efforts nearby. If the project is handled like the Oakland Colosseum, eh, watchout! I already know the 49ers wanted to avoid the AT&T Ballpark model, so a bit of concern is appropriate. It all depends on how Santa Clara City itself handles things.
