Less than seven months since the historic groundbreaking ceremony in April, the new Santa Clara Stadium steel structure is already nearing completion.
Recent photos taken via helicopter reveal the construction progress on a grand scale. View the photo gallery here.
The future home of the San Francisco 49ers is rising rapidly next to team headquarters, as precast concrete has now been installed to house seats for the 2014 season. Team President Gideon Yu has witnessed the new stadium being built from the ground up and is looking forward to the next chapter of the proud franchise.
“It’s incredible. I’ve been here now for almost two years, about a year and a half, and it was still then a dream that we’d get this done by ’15, not 2014,” Yu said. “And so by the time we got the financing done and now we’re six months past the actual groundbreaking, it’s amazing to see how fast this thing comes up. Think about this – 80 percent done with the steel in sixth months – that breaks all sorts of crazy records set by our (construction) team that’s already doing this.”
