Oregon’s Portland Diamond Project recently announced a deal for the site of its Major League Baseball park project. The team signed an agreement in principle with the Port of Portland to develop a 45-acre site in the effort to bring an MLB team to Portland.

The group also released artist renderings of the project, which includes features such as a retractable roof, gondola suite and centerfield and home-plate plazas.

The Project

The capacity for the new ballpark would range between 32,000 and 34,000, and the group is hoping for a first pitch of 2022, despite not yet having a team.

"We believe this has the potential to be a transformative landmark project for this city," said Portland Diamond Project President Craig Cheek.

"Building an iconic, state-of-the-art ballpark along the Willamette River will catalyze economic development and capture great views of both the urban scale of the city and regional character of the Pacific Northwest."

Cost estimations for the new venue sit at $1 billion, according to PDP’s Mike Barrett, and the team on board so far includes notable design firm Populous as well as TVA Architects.
