Los Angeles Stadium rises at Inglewood

The new home of the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers is beginning to take shape in Inglewood, California.

Construction of the Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District was held up last year because of an unusually wet winter, meaning the opening date for the $2.6 billion stadium was pushed back to 2020.

But better weather recently has helped builders to push ahead with work on the 70,000-seat stadium.

Around 6 million cubic yards of dirt have been excavated so far, 45,000 cubic yards of concrete poured, and eight cranes have now been brought to the construction site.

A structural wall to support the stadium is now 65% complete and the venue is starting to take shape.

The Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park, designed by HKS, is transforming the site of the former Hollywood Park Racetrack to a year-round sports and entertainment destination.

This will be the new “must-see” entertainment destination and gathering spot in the center of the Los Angeles basin. This monumental project covers 298 acres located two miles off the I-405, one and a half miles off the I-105, and four miles from Los Angeles International Airport.

The stadium will feature sporting events including the Super Bowl and the Opening and Closing ceremonies of the 2028 Olympics being held in Los Angeles, as well as major concerts and other entertainment year-round.

The stadium complex will also include a hotel, retail space, office space and a 6,000-seat entertainment venue.

Up until the venue is completed, the Rams will continue to play at historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and the Chargers will remain at StubHub Center in Carson.
