A Mortenson-McCarthy partnership has been chosen by the Oakland Athletics to manage the construction of their proposed $1.5 billion baseball stadium in Las Vegas. This joint venture, which previously collaborated on the Las Vegas Raider's $1.97 billion Allegiant Stadium, will be responsible for various aspects of construction such as preconstruction, estimation, scheduling, logistics, bidding, trade partner management, labor relations, and community engagement.

Although the relocation of the Major League Baseball club to Nevada is not yet confirmed, the team has already procured a purchase agreement for 49 acres of land adjacent to the MGM Grand Hotel on Las Vegas Boulevard and has secured $380 million in public funding. While the final decision rests with Major League Baseball, Commissioner Rob Manfred has previously expressed support for the move.

In conjunction with revealing the partnership, the team has unveiled new designs for the proposed 35,000-seat stadium featuring a retractable roof. Although an architect has not yet been finalized, a spokesperson from Mortenson informed Construction Dive that Gensler, Bjarke Ingels Group, and HNTB will be submitting initial designs.

Dave Kaval, President of the Athletics, praised the joint venture for their work on the Raiders' stadium in the official statement. The NFL stadium project was completed in 2020 after 31-months of construction and marked the Raiders' relocation from Oakland, California.

Mortenson, headquartered in Minneapolis, has also been involved in the construction of MLB parks for the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins. Meanwhile, McCarthy, based in St. Louis, Missouri, has been engaged in Nevada projects for over four decades, including developments like Circa Resorts & Casino, Virgin Hotels, and the Palms Casino Resort.
