Oakland City Council Considering $24M Sale Of Former Raiders Facility To Prologis-Led Group


The Oakland City Council plans to vote next month on the potential sale of the former Oakland Raiders training facility in Alameda County to a group that includes locally based industrial giant Prologis.

The facility at 1150 and 1120 Harbor Bay Parkway in Alameda would be sold for $24M on the condition that it be leased to Oakland Pro Soccer LLC, which owns the Oakland Roots and Soul soccer teams, a city council agenda report states.

The news was first reported by CoStar.

Both the Oakland Roots and the Oakland Soul already train at the former Raiders facility.

But, because Oakland owns the facility in conjunction with Alameda County, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors must approve the sale as well. It is in negotiations with several potential buyers, per their January meeting agenda.

Prologis, Overton Moore Properties and Steam Factory Oakland LLC are all listed as negotiators with the county for the property at 1150 and 1120 Harbor Bay Parkway.

Prologis is not yet under contract with the city of Oakland, Corporate Communications Manager Alana Victor said.

“If the council goes with staff’s recommendations, we would then have more serious talks,” Victor told Bisnow in the statement. “At the moment, we are one of several parties that expressed interest. You should also be aware that the city is only a 50% owner of the land — the county owns the other 50% and has a different process.”

Oakland City Council members will vote on the ordinance at their Feb. 6 meeting, according to the council agenda.

If a deal is authorized, it would bring an end to the large facility’s many woes after the Oakland Raiders left the Bay Area for Las Vegas and the city and county acquired the property in December 2020.

The city and county have tried to find potential buyers for the property but have received little interest after a no-bid auction last summer. The land is zoned for commercial or industrial purposes, Bisnow previously reported, but if the proposed Prologis plan materializes, the training facility would continue to be used for its original purpose.

Selling the property would result in approximately $11.5M for the City after broker fees, public documents show. The Prologis offer “is the most attractive” of multiple purchase offers the city received, the Oakland council documents say.

The deal could situate Oakland for a role in the 2026 World Cup, the documents say, after FIFA evaluated the Alameda County property and “concluded that it is a strong candidate to host a participating national team during the 2026 World Cup,” per city documents.

Oakland Professional Soccer has been using the property since 2021 as its practice facility under an agreement with the city and county. 

The Oakland Roots and Soul declined to offer comment for this story, but Chairman Steven Aldrich told the Oakland Rules and Legislation Committee that the soccer club is supportive of the ordinance at the committee's Jan. 25 meeting. 

"We've been working with Prologis to structure that relationship to ensure that even upon purchase we can continue to remain in that facility for the long term," Aldrich told the committee. "Timing is critical, we have an opportunity to bring a team to the Bay Area for the 2026 World Cup that could potentially be housed at that training facility."
