A's To Buy $20+ Million In San Jose Real Estate?

From the Silicon Valley Business Journal

San Jose city officials are scheduled on Tuesday to discuss the proposed sale of several parcels of land in preparation for a new Oakland A's    stadium.

More from the SVBJ: 

San Jose City Council members, acting as the San Jose Diridon Development Authority, are scheduled to discuss pricing and terms for the six parcels that the city owns near Diridon station. They make up about half of the 14 acres where the A's new home park would be built.

If this sounds like a lot of money for a project that has neither been approved by the voters of San Jose nor Major League Baseball, you wouldn’t be wrong. But it’s all part of Wolff’s plan to put "as many ducks in a row" as he can.

The Chronicle is adding that the land will be in the $24 million range:
Two other parcels owned by AT&T and a Los Gatos family will have to be acquired by the A's if the stadium is to be built.

One of MLB commissioner Bud Selig’s main sticking points for not approving Oakland’s plan to move to San Jose has been the absence of a lot. Soon — if the deal goes through — that may no longer be an issue.

It appears that after many long (looooong) years we may be seeing a lot of movement very quickly on the San Jose territorial front.
