Oakland’s Design Review Committee is scheduled to review plans for Howard Terminal tomorrow, the proposed $12 billion waterfront ballpark district for the Oakland A’s. The meeting will be held in the shadow of great uncertainty as the baseball team remains silent on if it is still committed to the project. Delays and the risk that the baseball stadium would not be ready in time have led the team to tease a move to Las Vegas.
Permits have been submitted seeking the approval of hotel development at 1851 McCarthy Boulevard in Milpitas. The project proposal includes the construction of a business hotel with onsite parking.

Strada Investment Group is responsible for the application.
Construction is moving quickly for Mission Rock, the multi-tower waterfront development by Tishman Speyer across from Oracle Park in Mission Bay, San Francisco.
