The NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers have revealed more details about the new arena they want to build in Inglewood, California.
The venue would include a practice facility, sports medicine clinic, team offices, retail space and a large outdoor plaza with basketball courts for public use.
The new details were published in a draft environmental impact report.
The Inglewood Basketball and Entertainment Center would be privately financed and in addition to hosting basketball games, it would likely stage 100 to 150 concerts and other events every year.
The practice facility would be 85,000ft2, the team offices 55,000ft2 and the sports medicine clinic 25,000ft2.
The whole site would also include 40,000ft of retail space and 260,000ft2 for the outdoor plaza.
Chris Meany, city project manager for the area, said:
Today marks the beginning of the environmental review to bring a world-class basketball arena, practice facility and new team headquarters for the LA Clippers to the City of Inglewood.
We look forward to a transparent and robust public process that engages the residents and stakeholders of Inglewood.
The environmental review process is expected to take 18 months.
