It's the same stadium that was built in 1966. They just removed the outfield upper tier in 1997 that was added for football in 1979.

City of Anaheim expected to release appraisal of Angel Stadium land May 2. Land value is key in city's talks w/ Angels over lease extension.

I really don't understand this. The team is not likely to move. Moreno does not want to leave the LA area, no city can afford to build him a new stadium, and Moreno does not have the cash to build one himself.

Well apparently the Angels are in talks with a developer in Irvine. They are also considering Tustin.

Yeah I'm not really sure what Moreno's play is here, he might get some like $1 a year lease on the land at Tustin or Irvine, but they're not going to give him a nickel for the actual construction of a new stadium.

City of Anaheim has a lot of power here because there's really no threat of another community to build a new stadium, and if by some chance the Angels ever did leave, they have a great piece of property worth hundreds of millions of $$$

My guess is they'll eventually come to an agreement over using the selling of some of the parking lot and Anaheim will chip in some money of that sale to the stadium renovation (other part will help go towards their streetcar from the new ARTIC train station to Disneyland) and Moreno will chip in his share. I'd love to see some mixed-use retail/office/hotel/living development replace the north parking lot.

It's based on Dodger Stadium, but with the seats closer to the field.

Angels end stadium negotiations with Anaheim, Tustin on deck?

The Angels on Friday ended negotiations with the city of Anaheim over a new Angel Stadium lease, frustrated by the inability to finalize a deal more than a year after the parties had ratified the framework of an agreement..

The Angels have held extensive discussions with the city of Tustin about a possible new ballpark there. The Tustin City Council scheduled a special closed session Tuesday to discuss a deal with the Angels.

Angels spokeswoman Marie Garvey said the team has not reached an agreement with Tustin and would continue to look at “all of our options.” Tustin City Manager Jeffrey Parker did not immediately return a call for comment.

The Tustin City Council has held at least nine previous closed sessions to discuss an Angels deal – but all of them, unlike the one scheduled Tuesday, preceded a regular council meeting. It is unlikely that Tustin – or any other city in Southern California – would use taxpayer money to build a stadium for the Angels.

“We can afford to build a new stadium,” Angels owner Arte Moreno said.

So, Arte has the money to build a brand new stadium in Tustin (probably cost $600-$700 million?), but he can't pay for an Angel Stadium renovation (that costs way less than a new stadium) in Anaheim unless he gets development rights to some of the city owned parking lot?

Anaheim is smart for calling his bluff, because if he actually did build a new stadium elsewhere, they are still sitting on one very expensive huge piece of property.

I see value in both points of view. If the negotiations are terminal, and the Angels build their own place, then they will arrange to make a killing from suites that Anaheim Stadium doesn't have. And with California's economy in serious growth mode right now, the city of Anaheim would suddenly have all this prime real estate available.

Or, Anaheim could give the Chargers a call. They could have a stadium that was built for baseball, modified to allow for football, modified back to baseball-only, and rebuilt as football-only.

Angel Stadium has plenty of luxury suites.

Another renovation for Angel Stadium would be a lot more structural and unseen to the eye type of renovations, the 1997 renovation were mostly cosmetic changes. The 2nd level (club and suites), outfield seats, and a section behind home plate were the only rebuilt parts of the renovation. A majority of the lower level and all of the upper deck is still some old concrete that's certainly showing it's age. Plus it'd be great if they could angle the seats down the foul lines towards home plate.

I hope they can reach an agreement for the renovation, it's such an excellent location and a mixed-use development in the north parking lot would certainly add to the game day experience to go along with the other existing and future development around the Katella and State College intersection.

Are you kidding? 78 suites is not "plenty". Staples Center has more than twice that number. Even O.co Coliseum (labeled by many who have never been there as the worst stadium on the planet) has more than that.

If Anaheim Stadium does indeed have 78 suites, that's more than many other MLB ballparks. Of course as seen in the Wrigley Field thread, not all suites are created equal.

Seriously? You're missing the big picture. Keep in mind this is Orange County, with a lot of money floating around. Much much more than anyplace short of LA proper, the Bay Area, NYC and maybe Texas. And I'd bet a lot of change that the Angels see that as money that is escaping their pockets. There were stupid people up the freeway who thought the Dodgers were worth more than two billion. If I owned the Angels, I'd be taking steps to put them in exactly that same plateau. That plateau is likely reached in a stadium with 200+ suites. Fancy suites.

78 suites is more than the Yankee's, Mets, Giants, Dodgers, Cardinals have among others. Orange county might have a lot of money, but it's not richer than New York, LA or San Francisco. Ballparks generally don't have a ton of suites, theres only a handful of venues in the MLB with over 100, much less 200. There has also been a trend in sports venues generally towards more club seats and loge boxs with fewer suites.

I'd say the Angels might more diverse premium seating options but probably not a ton more proper suites.

Move the team. Sell the land to Disney. Build a third Disney Park. Profit.

What ever happens, the Angels need to bring back the GIANT A video board with the lit up halo. That was and still is SWEET. Did they just have better ideas back then?

Angels don't even sell out all their suites, they advertise throughout the year about renting suites out on an individual game basis. If they could get 2 or 3 year commitments on every suite in the stadium, they wouldn't be offering them on an individual game basis.
