Oakland A's Stadium 365 Estuary Park Project - D'Sjon Dixon, Rick Tripp

Oakland A's Stadium 365 Estuary Park Project - D'Sjon Dixon, Rick Tripp Zennie62 talked with D'Sjon Dixon, the creator and architect of the exciting Stadium 365 Estuary Park Oakland As Stadium Proposal and his developer Rick Tripp in what is the first video interview and the longest one so far. It's also the first Zennie62 YouTube video that is a recorded three way conversation, thanks to Skype: D'Sjon Dixon is at his office in San Francisco; Rick Tripp is in Sacramento, and Zennie Abraham is in Suburban Atlanta Georgia. D’Sjon Dixon is an architect with SGPA Architecture and Planning. His idea and drawings for a baseball stadium for the A's has been in existence since 2013, but it took on steam when Dixon met and formed a friendship with real estate developer Rick Tripp, the Owner, Tripp Development. Dixon's stadium website is at Stadium365.com. Rick Tripp's name is not new in this issue: he made a proposal for a privately financed stadium for the A's at Coliseum City. But it came with a novel financing approach that Tripp says is based on real estate brokerage fees, and was in part presented in blog posts over at NewBallPark.org. Tripp also used this plan in a presentation for stadiums in Sacramento and in San Diego for the Chargers. I'll hold off on a critique here, as we're going to talk on video again. But back to Tripp, he is in the real estate business with his wife Leslie Dougherty, a realtor with Fusion Real Estate Network. Prior to that, both were involved with Cachet Realty Group Inc. in Nevada. I would not say Mr. Tripp is the finance guy, but more the classic real estate developer who sells the idea of a project to bankers. He's got to have a credible plan by a credentialed architect who can make something that can be built before he can attract more money- that person is Dixon. What is good is that this is a team up of two creatives who needed each other: D'Sjon Dixon's plan is excellent, but cried for a development partner; Tripp's plan was strong on financing (to a degree) but needed a good architect. As I told both, the purpose here is not to tear down D'Sjon Dixon's work, but to make it better as that benefits all of us. Visit our blog Zennie62.com here: http://ift.tt/1d6iMwr
