It looks like Santa Clara could be getting a new downtown-style entertainment district similar to Santana Row right across the street from the new 49ers Stadium. The project may include a mix of hotels, restaurants, retail, and residential. Currently the land is being used as a city-owned golf course and was formerly a landfill site.
The total area available for this project is a substantial 230 acres (Santana Row is only 45 acres). However, any project built here would be done over many phases. Separate from this project, Joe Montana is also planning to build a hotel complex with a sports bar and restaurant adjacent to the stadium.
