Progress right? Even if its minimal is still better than nothing San Jose Earthquakes fans.

Today your club’s owner Lew Wolff formally selected the architect for the teams’ proposed new stadium. Wolff announced that sports venue design innovator 360 Architecture would head up the project of both the Quakes new stadium and his MLB team the Oakland A’s stadium.

360 Architecture is known mostly for their work in baseball but their recent stadium design for the New Meadowlands Stadium has to be considered as some pretty solid work.

The new stadium is planned to be constructed privately, with no public money provided. The 18,000-seat stadium for the Earthquakes will be built as an anchor and catalyst of a mixed use residential, retail, R&D and hotel development next to San Jose International Airport according to the club’s website.

I know this isn’t great news but still its progress for the Quakes’ stadium front here. Its at least something to hear the club speak and actively do something with their on-going hope to build a new stadium.
