Anaheim is striving to bring the benefits of the proposed Stadium Development Plan to the community as quickly as possible. In fact, some of the long-term plans to develop the 150-acre Angel Stadium property in Anaheim passed their latest milestone. SRB Management, a business partnership of Angels owner Arte Moreno that bought the property in 2019 from the city, met a March 31 deadline to file additional technical maps for the project. In September 2020, city officials approved the broad outlines of a plan to bring thousands of homes as well as offices, shops, and restaurants to the property. Now, some of the most recent filings from SRB include a few notable details.
While the plans mainly show how the property will be divided into smaller parcels and defining what type of development will go on each one, a few items may be of interest to the local community and baseball fans. First, where fans enter and exit to get to the stadium won’t change, but surface parking will be replaced by multiple parking garages. Also, there are plans for several public parks spread around the property, including the showpiece 7-acre park, two 2-acre parks, and one 1-acre park.
Next, the city will review the latest maps and send them to the Planning Commission for approval, likely in September. The first phase of development, which would take place over the next decade, is slated for parcels just north of Orangewood Ave., as well as on the north end of the site along Katella Ave. and the railroad tracks. The work would bring a mix of homes, shops, restaurants, and offices to the southern parcels.
