A team of Montana Property and Lowe Enterprises has unveiled plans to develop a new $400m entertainment-themed, mixed-use project adjacent to the new 49ers Stadium in Santa Clara, US.
The 860,000ft² project, called Santa Clara Centennial Gateway, will feature a hotel, office and entertainment transit-oriented development on three city-owned parcels.
Santa Clara Centennial Gateway will be developed on the 9.5-acre site, situated at the intersection of Tasman Drive and Centennial Boulevard, which is adjacent to Levi’s Stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers.
The project will feature a mix of hotel, office and restaurants, including a Joe Montana restaurant, as well as more casual eateries, and entertainment and specialty retail with public spaces.
Architectural firm NBBJ will be the master planner for the project while Turner Construction will serve as general contractor.
The development team is working with the City of Santa Clara to create the optimum plan for the new project.
The masterplan currently features a 200-room hotel, a 125-room hotel, two 240,000ft² office buildings and up to 150,000ft² of retail, restaurant and entertainment space.
Plans also include active public outdoor plazas and two parking structures with over 2,500 total spaces.
Upon completion, Centennial Gateway will provide a connection and transition from Levi’s Stadium to its south and the proposed City Center project to its north.
Joe Montana of Montana Property said, "Centennial Gateway and the new 49ers stadium will create a thriving entertainment district that will continue the dramatic transformation underway in Santa Clara."
Centennial Gateway is anticipated to be approved in mid-2014 with the first phase planned to break ground soon thereafter.
The first phase, which will feature a hotel, is expected to be completed in advance of Super Bowl 50 in February 2016.
The 49ers will relocate to Santa Clara in late 2014, after completion of the new $1bn, 68,500-seat Levi’s Stadium.
