The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum opened in 1966 and has been the home of the Oakland A’s since 1968, but the franchise is getting a little closer to moving to a brand new home.

On Wednesday afternoon, the A’s revealed their plans for the new ballpark they plan on building at Howard Terminal and it’s a major upgrade from their current ballpark.

The Athletics’ new ballpark, which is set to open in 2023 if all goes as planned, which have picturesque views toward San Francisco, the Port of Oakland and the Bay Bridge, and will basically be a ballpark within a park.

On top of the brand new stadium, the Athletics plan on putting the current Oakland Coliseum site to good use once the team relocated down the street with preliminary plans including substantial new housing surrounding a large park that will include affordable housing, a skills centre, a community gathering space, office and retail developments and restaurants.

It will be pretty awesome if everything goes as planned because not only will Athletics fans finally get to say goodbye to the stadium that has been dubbed the worst ballpark in Major League Baseball by many and move into a state-of-the-art ballpark, but residents will also benefit off the move with the plans in place for the Oakland Coliseum site.
