Oakland new proposed stadium, with concept art of families sitting in a open field

Last night, the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) voted to remove Howard Terminal’s Port Priority Use designation paving the way for the approval of the Oakland A’s proposed stadium, condominium complex, retail center and hotel.

Despite this approval, the A’s development project faces three separate lawsuits, one by an industry coalition (California Trucking Association, Harbor Trucking Association, International Longshore & Warehouse Union, Pacific Merchant Shipping Association, East Oakland Stadium Alliance and Schnitzer Steel), a second by the Union Pacific Railroad, and a third by the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (they operate the Amtrak train between Sacramento and the Bay Area).

Additionally, there is an Oakland City Council meeting scheduled for July 5th where they will discuss putting the development and its $1B price tag on the ballot for a vote.
