Developer Lennar Urban has obtained a permit to begin demolition at Candlestick Park, and in a prepared statement Friday morning they said they plan to proceed before the end of January.
The project is expected to take two months.
Lennar Urban said they plan to withdraw their request to implode the stadium, and will use conventional mechanical demolition methods instead. That involves using high-reach excavators with pulverizing attachments to demolish the structure in sections, the company said.
After Candlestick Park is demolished, Lennar Urban plans to move forward with Candlestick Point and the San Francisco Shipyard, a large mixed-use development involving 6,000 homes and numerous commercial ventures.
