Take a Peek Before 2020
Nathan Fenno of the LA Times recapped how the first potential suite owners and sponsors are getting a detailed preview for what the L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park will look like.
With a massive model that had to be hoisted in to the Playa Vista space via crane and multiple video presentations, viewers are treated to what games days and other sporting events like the Final Four will look like as well as walkthroughs for each suite:
The stadium, centerpiece of a 298-acre sports and entertainment district that will include a hotel, retail, offices and housing, won't be completed until 2020. In the meantime, the first potential suite owners and sponsors are getting a glimpse of the project inside the 20,000-square foot premiere center.
"This is on a different scale because everything about what Stan is doing is on a different scale," said Chris Hibbs, chief revenue officer for the L.A. Stadium and Entertainment District. "This project is big and different in all positive ways."
Last week, Hibbs and his staff started selling the first group of 125 suites — the stadium will include more than 260 suites across seven varieties — and guiding would-be buyers through the center. This top-tier batch of suites will be committed for all Rams and Chargers games at the stadium in addition to non-football events.
When the introductory video ends — there are individual versions for the Rams and Chargers plus one that's team agnostic — doors pivot open behind guests to reveal a sprawling model of the project.
