SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Joe Montana is asking Santa Clara city officials to help him achieve his goal of building a new hotel and restaurants near the 49ers' new Silicon Valley stadium before the 2016 Super Bowl.
The Hall of Fame quarterback on Wednesday pitched to city councilmembers his proposed four-star hotel, upscale restaurant and sports bar that he originally wanted to open when the 49ers move to Levi's Stadium in August 2014.
The San Jose Mercury News reports that Montana now hopes the proposed $400 million complex will be open in time for Super Bowl 50 in February 2016.
The city asked Montana's development company to delay its application in July so they could work with another developer, Related California, to make sure both development plans near the stadium were in synch before the council would decide whether to move forward.
