Photos: Candlestick Park Appears Mostly Demolished



    Gone are the orange seats. Gone is most of the stadium.

    About five months after the first bulldozers and cranes started ripping down the old Candlestick Park, NBC Bay Area's chopper flew over the southern San Francisco site on Monday, showing mostly gray rubble.

    Large chunks of the ovular stadium have disappeared, eaten by voracious construction machines.

    Lennar Urban, along with partner and mall-owner Macerich Corp., are planning construction of an outlet mall, a hotel and the first 600 homes at the site by late 2017 or early 2018.

    The 49ers left Candlestick Park after the 2013 season for a new $1.2 billion stadium in Santa Clara.
