There are no renderings yet, but Miner sees the new stadium as just one piece of the puzzle that will become an "urban ballpark district". "We look forward to continued partnerships that enrich the learning experience of our students and the community we have served for more than fifty years", the statement said.

The Athletics were looking at the 13-acre plot of land near Laney College that was close to downtown Oakland. The area is surrounded by parkland and neighborhoods, a stark contrast to the sea of asphalt the Oakland Coliseum exists in.

The next step for the team, if they are unable to rekindle discussions with the Peralta Community College District, is to reexamine other possibilities for a new stadium.

The Peralta Community College District board of trustees decided in a closed session meeting Tuesday to direct its chancellor to halt a community engagement process with the Oakland A's on a proposed new baseball stadium near the district's offices and Laney College. "All we wanted to do was enter into a conversation about how to make this work for all of Oakland, Laney, & the Peralta Community College District".

"We are disappointed that we will not have that opportunity", the A's said. "Today's news comes as a surprise and we urge Oakland leaders to rejoin the conversation".

As the National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors build a new arena in San Francisco and the Raiders prepare for a move to Las Vegas, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf expressed the city's commitment to keeping the A's. "Oakland remains fiercely determined to keep the Athletics in Oakland", Schaaf wrote in a statement on Twitter. HOK and Snøhetta were to collaborate on the design of the new ballpark, and to make sure that it wouldn't remain an "insular" experience.
