“The demolition of Candlestick Park was originally planned to be a piece-by-piece disassembly, but a new call for the old stadium’s implosion has led to worries about toxins and poor air quality across the Bayview. Implosion would be quicker and cheaper for Lennar, the developer that is taking down the stadium and replacing it with housing and a shopping center.
