Re: “Why the Oakland A’s Should Rethink the Laney College Site

Coliseum site has existing infrastructure which will be impossible to install from scratch at Peralta. Use the Hegenberger/'tracks' corner for that small neighborhood stadium, and give it a neighborhood charm. Build tiered parking adjacent. Tear down the current ballpark and custom-build a neighborhood on the site. It would be ballpark / parking / a park / grocery / residential (affordable housing) that can be dense and tall, because height is not a factor (how high is Mt. Davis?) Build on the current infrastructure. Rehab the businesses that exist beside the BART walkway - make them accessible from the walkway instead of just ground level. Make it a walkway plaza. You can custom tailor a whole beautiful urban landscape.
But living adjacent to the Peralta site for 23 years, that is seriously crazy. Traffic nightmares like you wouldn't believe, and no off-loading traffic to side streets. Brooklyn Basin"s impact is also not to be discounted.
