Just Another Day In SouthLA
You guys thought I was pulling your leg when I did the Rams are moving back to LA after Superbowl post, well I kid-you-not, LA Times just confirmed it, St. Louis Rams owner is building a football stadium on 60 acrese of land between the forum and the, under construction, Hollywood Park Tomorrow Development. LA Times has also blessed us with first conceptual design of the what the City of Champions Football stadium is to look like (pictured above). We all know that design get transformed several times before they actually break ground on a project, so don’t expect the stadium to look exactly like the rendering above however I think this gives us the main idea. As far as what I can see, there’s seems to be a large pedestrian/fan plaza directly in front of the stadium with another large body of water for the area ( the Hollywood Park Tomorrow Development has a huge lake in the middle of it with river leading to a lower lake, and I thought we were in a drought).
Rams owner Stan Kroenke, purchased the 60 acres a year ago, and has seemed to partner with the owners of the 238-acre Hollywood Park developer, Stockbridge Capital Group. The plan is to add an 80,000-seat NFL stadium and 6,000-seat performance venue to the already-massive development of retail, office, hotel and residential space, Stockbridge and the Kroenke Group confirmed with The Times. The Inglewood site Kroenke bought last year is too small for a stadium and parking, but the deal with Stockbridge, the neighboring developer, provides ample space. The Rams have the option to to convert their lease in St. Louis to year-to-year, so I assume there gonna stay in St. Louie till the stadium is completed. The Rams declined comment on any plans to move to LA times but at this point its obivious whats going down.
