Major League Baseball Stadium

Major League Baseball Stadium

The Portland Diamond Project is leading the effort to bring Major League Baseball to the Portland.

Located at the Port of Portland’s Terminal 2 location, the proposed development will reinvent the roughly 45-acre riverfront site as an active area that will include the ballpark as the anchor of new development.

Terminal 2, which for decades handled commodities such as steel rail, bulk ores, and other oversized international cargo, will provide many opportunities to address environmentally sustainable construction and operations. The existing brownfield site will now be able to support opportunities for makers and small businesses, and celebrate diversity and inclusion for all Portlanders. Building an iconic, state-of-the-art ballpark will catalyze economic development and capture great views of both the urban scale of the city and regional character of the Pacific Northwest.

An integral partner to the development team, TVA Architects is designing the 32,000-seat stadium and large-scale mixed-use site. TVA is collaborating with Kansas City-based Populous for the technical aspects of ballpark design such as ball trajectories and sightlines. Allowing games to play throughout the baseball season regardless of the weather, the design will include a retractable roof. An outdoor amphitheater and connections to Portland’s celebrated pedestrian paths will allow the large complex to integrate into the existing urban fabric. With the ballpark along the Willamette River and over 2,000 linear feet of waterfront, the use of water taxis and the mooring of boats next to the ballpark will be possible.
