49ers threaten to keep Joe Montana from building a hotel next to Levi’s Stadium

levis stadiumAccording to the San Francisco Chronicle,  the 49ers might block Joe Montana’s plan of building a hotel next door to their new stadium if they’re unable to get the right number of parking spaces that they need.

With Levi’s Stadium set to open in August, the team is in a sprint to try to figure out where people will park not just on game days, but when non-football events are held during the week.

Under terms of the 2012 stadium deal, the 49ers are entitled to 789 parking spots on land where Montana’s company intends to build a hotel, stores and office space. The site is just across the street from the stadium.

“Their position has been that unless we find other parking acceptable to them, they may not allow the project to go forward,” said City Manager Julio Fuentes, per the Chronicle.
