L.A. Coliseum: What the $1.8 billion arena has to offer
- by admin
L.I.A.’s iconic Coliseum is set to get an overhaul in a new $1 billion stadium, but some questions remain about how much of that will be built and what it will look like.
The arena is slated to open in 2022.
But while a number of factors have been considered for the new project, some key decisions have yet to be made.
A $1,087 million price tag was included in a preliminary design by the state and city of L.E. on the site of the Coliseum, which is in a prime location in downtown L.C. for entertainment events.
That design included an additional $1 million for a parking garage, but it also included a $2 million tax increment financing program for construction and improvements.
The L.L. Bean Arena will be a separate stadium, with its own arena.
The $1 BIX IMAX Center was to be constructed in Inglewood, and that project has stalled, though L.B. Bean has said it will eventually move its games to a new venue.
Another $1 trillion in federal subsidies is expected to be spent on the project.
The state and the city have not specified the amount.
Some have suggested the Coliseum project may not be viable if L.
Ana and its surrounding area were to get hit by a major earthquake.
A spokeswoman for the city of Inglebrook, which includes Ingleview, said the state’s plan for the Coliseum is “optimistic” and would include an earthquake contingency plan if an earthquake does occur.
The city has said a $1-billion contingency plan is needed if there is a major quake.
Other details are still being worked out, including the overall cost of the project and how much the stadium will cost to build.
Lakeside is a former commercial district, and the Coliseum would be in a residential area that is popular with residents, according to a city website.
It is about 3.3 miles from downtown Larkspur, where the L.J. Smith Arena is located.
Larkspur is one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city, with a mix of people of all races, ages and income levels.
Larkspruce is located about 25 miles north of Larkspit.
The stadium is scheduled to open for football games and concerts starting in 2022 and end in 2021.
The L.D. Thomas Convention Center is scheduled for 2022 and 2021, and is about 1.2 miles from the Coliseum.LARKSSPOT is located in the neighborhood of Larkdale and includes a mixed-use development.
