ProLogis the company that owns the land on which the A’s have proposed building a new ballpark and housing and retail complex announced today that they oppose the A’s plan.
The real estate trust, which owns the adjacent Pacific Commons Shopping Center, has determined that putting a stadium so close center would harm the stores there.
Aidan Berry of ProLogis said that the company has performed independent studies and determined that the stadium would cause traffic and parking problems for the shopping center
The A’s and Cisco have options to lease and purchase the site, but opposition from ProLogis would make the deal a lot trickier and potentially more costly.
