On Wednesday, the Oakland A's announced their plan to build a new baseball stadium at the Port of Oakland’s Howard Terminal, north of Jack London Square. In conjunction, they are also planning to redevelop the Coliseum site in Oakland with housing, retail and a scaled-down sports stadium. We'll discuss the A's ambitious proposal, which has been endorsed by top city officials but faces a lengthy approval process.
