Very detailed profile of Jed York and his quest to renew his team and his stadium.
It IS a miracle, especially when compared with Bay Area's debacle, the Oakland Raiders.
His stadium is under construction, a skeletal shell just 14 feet away from the 49ers' offices. It is already famous in the stadium world for what it will be: state of the art, green and wired, of Silicon Valley as much as it is in Silicon Valley. Levi's Stadium is its official name, but locals call it the House That Jed Built, a 68,500-seat miracle that will open next fall.
