ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 23, 2020) — A proposed 30-year master plan for the 153 acres including Angel Stadium of Anaheim includes ballpark neighborhoods, parks and open spaces, dining, shopping, hotels and workplaces.

The plan also calls for renovation of the current Angel Stadium of Anaheim or the building of a new 45,000-seat stadium.

The plan, submitted to the city today, is a milestone in the proposal to sell the stadium site to a company led by Angels Baseball owner Arte Moreno and his family and to secure the future of baseball in Anaheim.

“For too long, the fate of baseball in Anaheim was unclear,” Mayor Harry Sidhu said. “Now there is a clear path forward with this proposal for neighborhoods, parks, open spaces, shopping, dining and entertainment, all built around baseball. This plan has the potential to bring the great experiences of baseball cities such as San Diego or Chicago to Anaheim, and I look forward to reviewing it with my council colleagues.”

Not only does this proposal speak to our vision for baseball in Anaheim,” Sidhu said, “the investment it represents will help move our city past the economic impacts of coronavirus in years to come.”

Here’s a summary of the plan:

  • Homes: 5,175 apartments and condominiums, including affordable apartments throughout
  • Office: 2.7 million square feet
  • Commercial: 1.1 million square feet of retail, restaurants, hotels
  • Hotels: 943 rooms
  • Parks: 5-acre urban park, plus at least 5 additional acres of community park space; city park requirement is 5 acres
  • Parking: 12,500 spaces in structures, surface and underground

The master site plan is part of a two-step agreement to sell Angel Stadium of Anaheim and 153 acres of land at the stadium site.

In December, Anaheim approved the first step, a $325 million purchase and sale agreement for the site. The city is now working on step two ― follow-on agreements and final plans with consideration by Anaheim’s City Council expected in late summer or early fall.
