The plan for a luxury hotel, sports bar and entertainment complex on two parcels of city-owned land bordering the site of the planned 68,500-seat stadium are out. Former 49ers great Joe Montana and ex-owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. are participating in the efforts for the stadium and the entertainment complex for Santa Clara. Plans are aiming at finishing the stadium for the 2015 season.
Jamie Matthews, a City Council member who will become the new mayor of the city was excited about these efforts and what his town’s image will gain from this $937 million stadium construction. “This is an absolutely perfect fit for what we would like to see develop around the stadium as a supporting use, and having the cachet of Joe Montana raises the stakes for this being a destination.”
