The A’s dream of a waterfront baseball stadium and residential/commercial complex at Howard Terminal at the Port of Oakland is over, and the team is moving to Las Vegas.

So what does that mean for Howard Terminal? Thankfully, without the distraction of a ballpark, the Port is now focusing its attention on using the 50 acres to support maritime activities.

The much-needed, expanded turning basin is back on the table. Other options to complement the port’s maritime functions include truck and container parking, charging stations, export staging, reefer storage…the sky’s the limit.

It is now time to put the bitterness and animosity behind us and move forward collectively as a unified front of stakeholders and take advantage of this rare opportunity to improve Oakland’s capacity to be a world-class gateway
