Levi’s® Stadium is home to the San Francisco 49ers, and also serves as one of the world’s best outdoor sports and entertainment venues. The $1.2 billion venue has 1.85 million square feet, seats approximately 68,500 and features 165 luxury suites and 8,500 club seats.
The stadium was designed by HNTB and is being built by Turner/Devcon for the Santa Clara Stadium Authority. The structure takes advantage of our Silicon Valley climate and will be predominantly open and airy, while also environmentally friendly.
The new stadium in Santa Clara is the next generation of stadium design. One of the most unique features of the facility is the green roof atop the suite tower on the west side of the stadium. The three solar bridges, connecting the main parking area to the stadium, will include hundreds of solar panels.
The stadium is the first United States professional football stadium to have achieved LEED Gold certification. Visitors and guests may view a live dashboard display featuring current energy measurements, water and air monitors, and other dynamic green features as the building operates daily. The dashboard is located inside Levi’s® Stadium in between the 49ers Museum Presented By Sony and 49ers Team Store.

— How Levi’s® Saved One Billion Liters of Water —
Today, our partner, Levi Strauss & Co. announced a new Lifecycle Assessment about the water and energy impact from a pair of their 501 jeans. Among the findings, they learned that if everyone in the U.S. would wash their jeans after every 10 wears instead of every 2, we could save more than 270 billion liters of water – or the equivalent of the annual water needs for the city of San Jose!
