Officials on the $2.6 billion stadium project, located in Inglewood, California, have said that the future site of the 2028 Olympics closing ceremonies is right on schedule after its winter delay, and recently held a quarterly job fair for local tradesmen and apprentices.

The structure will be the home for both the National Football League's Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, and will have the capacity to seat 70,000 people, acting as an intersection of event, conference and meeting spaces.

Stadium Details

The Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park site, being transformed, was once the Hollywood Park Racetrack, situated on 298 acres of land, four miles from the Los Angeles International Airport.

According to the district’s website, the area will also feature a 6,000-seat performance venue; 780,000 square feet of office space; 890,000 square feet of retail space; 300 hotel rooms; 2,500 residences; 25 acres of public parks, open space, as well as pedestrian walkways and bicycle paths; and areas for family and fine dining.

A $2.6 billion stadium, located in Inglewood, California, currently under construction, will be the home for the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers. The structure will have the capacity to seat 70,000 people, acting as an intersection of event, conference and meeting spaces.

Officials have said that 2017’s wet winter delayed construction and set back the stadium’s opening date until 2020, however, and in March, the debit limit for the new stadium was increased, with project documents indicating that the endeavor could cost $4.9 billion to build. (The entire venture is privately funded, however.)

As far as features, a 120-yard video screen, known as the Oculus, will encircle the top of the open-air stadium, with a clear roofline above allowing light to shine down on those in seats or luxury suites.

"It's for real," Chargers owner Dean Spanos told The Los Angeles Times. "Just to look at it, you see the size and enormity of this project. You can't describe it unless you're here to see it for it yourself. […] Knowing that in 2020 we're going to be playing here, it's pretty exciting."

Dallas-based FC Construction Services was one of the firms tapped to provide services for the Inglewood Stadium—namely 12 full-height, restricted access turnstiles, which will yield data regarding drug screening, access control and labor analytics.

The project is a 100 percent union job, and the Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building and Construction Trades Council, paired with Inglewood One Stop Construction and Utilities Pathways Program, are conducting quarterly job fairs at the site. (The last one was at the end of April.)
