Inglewood Where’s Yo Metro?
Inglewood Fails in attempts to create Monorail/People Mover
No Downtown Inglewood stop, doesn’t connect to Green Line, that’s now consider the C Line, What the H is going on in City hall. Inglewood announced back in 2018 that they were creating a Monorail-like system that would runs 1.6 miles, from Market Street/Florence station to Sofi Stadium with only one other stop which is in front of the Forum. It won’t even connect with the anticipated Clippers Intuit Dome, major fail Inglewood, major fail. First off, this should have been constructed as the Sofi Stadium was being built. Have you been to a Rams/Chargers game, are trying to travel thru Inglewood on a Game Night, yea don’t do that. Mayor Butts has secured $380 million for the project but is relying on the infrastructure bill to provide sufficient funding for that project that is exceeding $1 billion. But why no stop at Manchester and Market? Century and Prairie?
While construction was originally anticipated to occur over a 45-month period between 2022 and 2026, the revised project is expected to be built over a period of 46 months between January 2024 and November 2027.
Ground Breaking for Inglewood People Mover pushed back to 2024

Give the gift of Gratitude this holiday season.
Saturday, November 20, 2021, Women Blessing Women & Kia Patterson, the 7th St. Grocery Outlet Bargain Market owner in Long Beach, CA, will partner for the 4th year. Yes, that’s right, this will be the 4th year we bless single families with a Holiday Shopping Spree to fund their Thanksgiving Dinner.

Give friends and family the power to change their lives this holiday season. We want to give a special shoutout & thank you to Jerry Housey, Strong House Fitness owner, who will donate turkeys to every parent in attendance.

Low Income Housing Opening In Inglewood
…..But they aren’t taking anymore applications?
The Fairview Heights Apartments, will replace an LA County office building right north of Edward Vincent Jr. Park (didn’t that used to be called Centinela Park??) along Florence Blvd. Located at 923 E. Redondo Boulevard, two four-story structures consisting of 101 apartments are being erected. The project is aimed at low-income and formerly homeless persons and will offer 5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
The units are a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments and are priced for households earning at or below 30, 50 and 80 percent of the area median income, corresponding to annual incomes ranging from as low as $14,616 to as much as $56,904. Rents for the apartments will range from $609 per month to $2,371 per month. However, the application period for the building has already closed, according to a landing page on the National CORE per Urbanize.
The $53-million development will is slated to open soon.
Crenshaw Line Almost Complete!
Metro’s Crenshaw/LAX Transit Line is 99% according to CEO Stephanie Wiggins. After a series of delays the line is moving closer to opening. The $2.1 billion project, is slated to start service in 2022 is finaly nearing completion. The 8.5 mile light rail line will connect LAX to……well eventually to Hollywood but for now I guess just to the Expo, but that’s still good. The Crenshaw Line won’t actually connect with LAX but Metro is currently building a $900 Million People Mover to connect the Light Rail to LAX directly. Emphasizing the significance of the Crenshaw/LAX Line, Wiggins insisted,
“This is our top priority. We are working tirelessly to get this project done. We are listening. We value yourpartnership throughout this process and going forward. We really believe the Crenshaw/LAX, once opened, will be a jewel that everyone will be proud of – the community, businesses and residents alike.”Stephanie Wiggins, CEO of LA Metro

The route consist of eight stations, four at-grade and three underground. The Expo/Crenshaw, Martin Luther King Jr. and Leimert Park Stations are underground, there was at one time talk about building a entrance to the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Mall. The train starts at the Aviation station on the Green Line, now the “C Line” passes by LAX, into Westchester, Inglewood, Hyde Park, Crenshaw’s Park Mesa Community and ends at the Expo line.
On October 1, the Crenshaw/LAX Line initiated Photo Enforcement Program, which aims to reduce train and vehicle collisions and improve safety on the boulevard for motorists and pedestrians. Motorists who disobey traffic signals will be cited an average cost of $100 along with penalties and assessments. Cameras will be monitoring left-turn movements crossings on Crenshaw Blvd, so beware!
Turn the Fabulous Forum into the LA Sports Museum At The Fabulous Forum
Los Angeles Sports Museum @ The Fabulous Forum
Imagine walking into 3 large replicas of the Lakers Championship, the King Championship trophies, the Dodger’s Championship Trophies all on the first floor, the second floor Kings Museum, the third floor Dodgers museum, forth floor Lakers and Clippers, fifth floor Chargers and Rams, LAFC and Galaxy on sixth floor and Sky Terrace/Event Space on top, that’s what I would do if I owned the Fabulous Forum. I would knock out all the red walls, replace them with glass, keeping the white pillars intact. Place an event space/plaza with monitors in front for celebrations and a grass park around it as there is plenty of parking for Sofi. Steve Ballmer purchased the Fabulous Forum for $400 Million, CASH, from previous owner Madison Square Garden in order to break ground on his new $1.8 Billion Arena. But now with a new state of the art stadium being built right next door, what’s the purpose of the Forum? The arena was added to the National Register of Historic Places on September 24, 2014 so we don’t have to worry about it going anywhere but it now seems like surplus event space. What would you do with this space, keep it as it is or convert it?

Intuit Dome of Inglewood
Gentrification At Its Finest or Nice Addition To Hollywood Park Tomorrow
Gentrification continues in Inglewood with Intuit Dome, the latest addition to the Inglewood entertainment area. The new 18,000 seat, 44,000 square-foot arena had one hell of a groundbreaking ceremony September 17, which you can see in the attached video below (the first 17 minutes is just music with the dome in the background) The $1.8 billion privately funded arena which is slated to have a halo video screen according to the Associated Press, wonder where they got that idea from, **cough Sofi cough**, excuse me, that COVID must of crept in here. The design has been revised several times with the fans comfort in mind according to Steve Ballmer, the current owner of the Clippers, in an interview with The Associated Press. In the same interview, Ballmer stated the arena will be the “Basketball mecca! Basketball palazzo!”.
Every detail — from the huge halo video screen that will hover over the court, to how the bathrooms will be designed to get fans back in their seats as quickly as possible — has a purpose. The halo will include 44,000 square feet of LED lighting, slightly more than one full acre and roughly six times the average size of other “big” screens in NBA buildingsSteve Ballmer- Associated Press
The Clippers currently share the Staple Center in the, now, lovely South Park district of Downtown Los Angeles along side the Lakers and the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings. Its stated that Balmer has always had the idea of the Clippers having their own arena but formerly announced and unveiled plans in 2019. The stadium has an anticipated opening for the 2024 Season. I don’t think the city is officially tacking this on on the Hollywood Park Tomorrow Development, but unofficially, as of now, this is the latest edition to Inglewood’s newly formed entertainment area.
So what do you guys think are you excited for the new arena or is this furthering the Inglewood gentrification ticket, please comment below?

LA Rams And Chargers Stadium Taking Shape
The LA Rams and Chargers Stadium are beginning to take shape. The 70,240-seat arena will be the first indoor/outdoor stadium to be built, a clear roof above but open on all sides, no walls, so guest will enjoy the feeling of being outside yet protected from the elements. The $2.6 billion stadium will be the largest stadium ever built at 3.1 million square feet. The stadium is actually a giant whole in the ground; the base of the stadium is a 100ft in the ground rather than the normal max of 30ft due to the proximity to LAX. The LA Stadium will have the largest video screen at 120 yards (dubbed Oculus) just about the same size of the football field it will be hovering directly above. The LA Stadium will be opening in 2020 and is planned to host the Super Bowl LVI, 2023 College Football National Championship, and the 2028 Summer Olympic Games.
