As Flavius mentioned, a 21-story tower is planned at 6220 Yucca Street in Hollywood. 277 residential units, 3,300 square feet of retail.

The property looks to be well outside of the "no-build," zone within 50 feet of the fault line. There are also towers planned for the NE and SW corners of the same intersection.

Rams Owner Planning to Build an NFL Stadium in Inglewood



Quote:
Friday, Inglewood is named Los Angeles Neighborhood of the Year; Monday, the announcement comes that it's getting an NFL stadium and a big new music and events venue. Coincidence? Maybe. Billionaire St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke bought a 60-acre site next to the old Hollywood Park early last year, but never made it clear what he was going to do with the property. Now the LA Times says he's decided to team up with Stockbridge Capital Group, the developers of the mega-mixed-use project underway at the former Hollywood Park site, to create an 80,000-seat NFL stadium and parking, plus a 6,000-seat performance venue. Hollywood Park's nearly-300-acre site already has retail, residential, office, and hotel space (plus two lakes!) coming its way, but this additional collaboration adds 60 more acres of completely new space. This new configuration of the development is being called the City of Champions Revitalization Project.

Excavation/shoring permits were issued for the second half of the G.H. Palmer project on Olympic last week. Not sure of an exact date, but we'll hopefully see shovels hit dirt soon.

Project website:
http://championsinitiative.com/


This location is in a perfect centralized location to many rich neighborhoods in the west LA county.

Quote:

No tax dollars or public funding will be used for the construction of the City of Champions Revitalization Project, including the new stadium. Indeed, the revised project is expected to create a long-term revenue source for the City of Inglewood that is substantially larger than estimates from the prior plan.

The expanded project also will create meaningful employment opportunities for Inglewood residents and businesses. Specifically, the project adheres to the provisions from the City of Inglewood’s 2009 approval, which established a goal of at least 30% participation of minority/disadvantaged business enterprises in the construction of the project and adds a goal of hiring qualified Inglewood residents for at least 35% of long-term, post-construction jobs at the property.

Incorporating the 60 neighboring acres acquired by TKG into the Hollywood Park Specific Plan provides an opportunity to create a cohesive central district in Inglewood. This new project will blend a sports and entertainment district into the core components of the original plan, including new residential neighborhoods, public open space, parks and a lifestyle retail area.

Signature gathering will begin soon for an initiative that would place the City of Champions Revitalization Project on the Inglewood municipal ballot in 2015.

As described in the ballot measure, the 298-acre project will include a stadium of up to 80,000 seats and a performance venue of up to 6,000 seats while reconfiguring the previously approved Hollywood Park plan for up to 890,000 square feet of retail, 780,000 square feet of office space, 2,500 new residential units, a 300-room hotel, and 25 acres of public parks, playgrounds, open space and pedestrian and bicycle access.

The stadium authorized by the ballot measure will be designed by HKS, Inc., one of the world’s leading firms for the design of sports and entertainment complexes. A successful ballot measure would shorten the timeframe for Inglewood’s approval of a stadium, and would mean that professional sports could return to Inglewood in 2018.

JONES SAYS RAMS CAN MOVE When the St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke announced plans last week to build an 80,000-seat football stadium near downtown Los Angeles, it raised the specter that he might unilaterally move his team to Southern California.

After his announcement, the N.F.L. reiterated that any team relocation must be approved by at least 24 out of the league’s 32 owners. The N.F.L. controls the Los Angeles market, and Commissioner Roger Goodell has said that any move there must be done in an orderly way.

But in an interview last week, the Dallas Cowboys’ owner, Jerry Jones, said that while he prefers that the owners approve any team moving to Los Angeles, a team could possibly move there without league approval.

“As it would turn out now, apart from the league saying no, you can move there,” he said. “Keep in mind that teams have moved without the permission of the league. They just have.”

Asked if Kroenke could move on his own, Jones said: “He can if the league says he can’t.”

Asked if the N.F.L. preferred to coordinate any relocation, Jones said: “Again, there are just certain things that clubs can do.”

Jones’s comments are bound to stir interest in a murky and emotional process because he is one of the N.F.L.’s most powerful and unconventional owners.

The league said last month that the Rams, the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders would not move to Los Angeles in 2015. But Kroenke has the ability to shift to a year-to-year lease at the Edward Jones Dome, where the Rams play.

That would give him the flexibility to leave St. Louis in the coming years.

“The idea of Stan going ahead and making his announcement was driven by all of the right things,” said Jones, who cited Kroenke’s having a deal for a location and his owning a team with “a great legacy.”

Jones added, “All of that is to me a very positive thing for Los Angeles and for the N.F.L.”

Quote:

After the 1980 season, Al Davis attempted unsuccessfully to have improvements made to the Oakland Coliseum, specifically the addition of luxury boxes. That year, he signed a memorandum of agreement to move the Raiders from Oakland to Los Angeles. The move, which required three-fourths approval by league owners, was defeated 22–0 (with five owners abstaining). When Davis tried to move the team anyway, he was blocked by an injunction. In response, the Raiders not only became an active partner in an antitrust lawsuit filed by the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (who had recently lost the Los Angeles Rams), but filed an antitrust lawsuit of their own.[9] After the first case was declared a mistrial, in May 1982 a second jury found in favor of Davis and the Los Angeles Coliseum, clearing the way for the move.[10][11][12] With the ruling, the Raiders finally relocated to Los Angeles for the 1982 season to play their home games at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oakland_Raiders

It seems Chargers, Raiders, and 49ers will abstain from vote on this.

The consultant is Aviation Systems, Inc., according to Chris Meany of Hollywood Park Land Co., the project's developer.

As it worked out, that was as Goodell and the league were getting the new personal conduct policy ready for voting. And the plan had always been for the commissioner to turn more attention to L.A. once the policy was done. Suffice it to say, Kroenke gave him plenty to chew on.

Two big steps are expected this week. The Rams will provide notice to St. Louis that they're going year-to-year on their lease before Wednesday's deadline to do so. And they'll likely turn in to the city of Inglewood the 8,500 signatures necessary to set up a public vote, which will most likely take place in the spring, to re-zone the land where the stadium will be built. According to a source, the team already has the signatures in hand. UPDATE: The team informed the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission on Monday about its decision to change the lease to year-to-year. Also on Monday, per a source, 20,000-plus signatures were delivered to Inglewood in support of bringing the matter to a vote.

The 60-acre plot Kroenke bought in January 2014 is approved for a stadium, but the adjacent 238-acre area owned by the Stockbridge Capital Group isn't. Once all 298 acres are zoned properly, shovels can break ground.

And therein lies the other difference in Inglewood: the size of the area where the stadium would go up. By comparison, the NFL's largest physical structure, Cowboys Stadium, sits on a plot of just 73 acres.

But all of that might not matter. Remember, the league has a huge interest in making Los Angeles work, one way or another, and this project seems to meet the right-team, right-owner, right-stadium threshold.

The way it's been laid out to the clubs, the league wants the L.A. stadium to be an iconic venue that's a sports and entertainment destination. This vast property would satisfy that, with a number of projects expected to pop up on the periphery within the grounds around the team's home, creating a West Coast headquarters of sorts for the league.

Kroenke is also amenable to the idea of having a second team as part of the project, according to a source, which would help the NFL make the most of the effort.

At the very least, Kroenke's bombshell accelerated the L.A. timeline and put pressure on a number of entities with an interest in the market -- on the cities of Los Angeles (proper) and Carson to push their projects forward, on the cities of Oakland, San Diego and St. Louis to ramp up efforts to keep their own teams, and on the Raiders and Chargers to figure out their futures. The movement on the St. Louis stadium effort is proof positive of that.
