The #Athletics are set to unveil a “bigger than baseball” mega-ballpark deal that includes a “jewel box” waterfront stadium at Howard Terminal. The plan would also turn the Coliseum site into a #tech and housing hub.@MatierAndRoss have the full story: https://t.co/FSm3ek3ey6 pic.twitter.com/OcbdgUhXUl— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) November 28, 2018
The plan also includes an aerial gondola to shuttle 6,000 fans an hour from downtown Oakland over Interstate 880 and the railroad tracks to Jack London Square.
The Howard Terminal-Coliseum double play is the second — and possibly last — attempt by the A’s to build a new ballpark near downtown Oakland.
The team’s first pick, which was next to Laney College, died almost as soon as it was announced when the school’s faculty and students objected to putting the ballpark there.
