The project sponsor proposes to develop the Howard Terminal property and construct: a new privately funded, open-air, approx 35,000 person capacity Major League Baseball park; up to 4,000 residential units of varying affordability and types; approx 2.27 million sf of adjacent mixed use development, including retail, commercial, office, cultural, entertainment, flex light industrial/manufacturing, and recreational uses; a 300-400 room hotel; a performance venue with a capacity of up to 3,500 individuals; new and expanded utility infrastructure; and new signage and lighting. The project would also include the following key initial plan elements: demolish existing buildings on the project site, except the existing container cranes which may be retained; address any hazardous materials that may be present on the project site; construct/provide improved access from the surrounding neighborhood and regional transportation networks, which could include, buy may not be limited to an expanded shuttle and/or bus service ("rubber-tire trams") and a new network of public streets and sidewalks that provide connectivity to and through the project site, and pathways that lead directly to the waterfront and related amenities; construct/provide new waterfront public access, enhanced water views, and on-site open space; comply with AB 734 regarding implementation of sustainability measures, development of a LEED Gold ballpark, and no net increase of GHG emissions; and phase development of the proposed project, with a target completion date of Spring 2023 for construction of Phase 1, including the ballpark, associated infrastructure, and potentially some ancillary development.
The proposed project may also consider one or more variants or options, potentially including but not limited to: new elevated pedestrian connections over the railroad tracks and improvements to existing at-grade crossings; an aerial tram or gondola above Washington St extending from downtown Oakland near 12th St BART to Jack London Square; development of a portion of an adjacent existing power plant and removal of adjacent tanks; altered edge configuration of the existing wharf to enhance public views and provide additional boat access/active water uses; and/or extension of Embarcadero West to Middle Harbor Road and a new ramp from the existing Adeline St overpass for new direct access to the project site.
