Why is this portal removed?

Category: Appeal of Portal Removal

Title of the Portal: Playground Basket-Volley

Mail from NIA:

Location (red dot) and key:

The portal that was removed was a recreational area on company grounds. Access wise it’s pretty similar to other portals on company grounds like 


Though recently approved through OPR it meets several of the criteria provided by Niantic for portal submissions. The portal is not on a residential ground, it’s just hard to reach.

Since I’ve read some cases about portals on army bases etc. I was wondering what the problem is with this portal and why it was removed from the game. If the removal was not legit, could you reinstate the portal?

Awaiting your judgement.
