New Stadium Construction

A new 68,500 seat San Francisco 49ers professional football stadium is being built a few miles from home in Santa Clara, California. Groundbreaking started April 2012 and this is how it looks like as of a few days ago.

The stadium didn't come about without plenty of controversy. Some of the issues ranged from moving the San Francisco team to play in another city almost an hour away to locals revolting against having it built in their backyard to disagreements of having their city contribute to its building cost. On the other hand, it will create new jobs in the area and hopefully gain additional revenue for the city.

Whether people are For or Against the new stadium, local voters approved its development and I see progress every time I drive by scheduled for the Fall 2014 opening.

Lots of pros and cons for the new stadium. I do feel sorry for the fans that will have to drive further to see their team play. Have a great weekend!

What a big stadium! It's always issue to move a large building in Japan.

Always exciting to see a new sports stadium under construction. It's amazing just how speedily they are built too.

There is ying and yang.

There is yes and no.

This is the natural law.

There is always controversy when things like these are created, money is being put in. Will love to look at it in a few years time when its complete!

We have lots of issues (mainly complaints) on construction of public buildings in the residents' backyards. :( They don't realise the buildings are there for a purpose and to serve the needy residents.
