The National Football League’s new $1.6 billion stadium plan for the Los Angeles Rams is designed to be a city-scale facility.
That means a stadium that’s a mix of indoor and outdoor housing.
It also means a building with both a parking lot and a parking garage, and the possibility of a pedestrian street.
The Rams have been in talks with the city of Inglewood about a parking ramp, and it’s the first time that the city has publicly discussed the proposal.
Inglewoods mayor Kevin Faulconer told the LA Times that the proposal will create up to 20,000 jobs and generate $7 billion in economic activity.
The team is seeking to build a stadium in Ingleerton, but the Rams are not a tenant in the city.
The city has proposed a $3.2 billion arena that would be a mixed-use project that would include restaurants, apartments and a hotel.
The stadium could be built in downtown Inglemont, a city that’s not a home to many of the NFL teams that play in Los Angeles.
“This is the biggest, most ambitious plan I’ve ever seen,” Faulconers said.
“This is a big deal for Inglebrook, and I’m thrilled to have a chance to share this project with you.
We have the infrastructure and we have the money, and we’re going to make this happen.”
The stadium will also feature a public plaza, a pedestrian walkway and landscaped paths.
The Ingle City Council unanimously approved the plans for the Rams stadium in a 3-2 vote on Tuesday.
It includes a plan for parking lots, an indoor/outdoor stadium with a parking deck, and a new pedestrian street in downtown Los Angeles, the Times reported.
The city has been working on this plan since the early 2000s, and is now seeking to secure financing for the project, the newspaper said.
“The Rams are committed to building a stadium and will be a vital part of this plan,” Ingle County Commissioner Paul Kestelman told the Times.
“The city is committed to helping the team, as long as they do what is right for the community.
The plan is based on the assumption that Ingle Springs will continue to host the NFL, and that’s good for the area.”
The city will also help pay for the stadium and the parking ramp.
The $1 billion stadium is expected to open in 2021, and could be ready for the 2020 season.
