in the Los Angeles region with several new development projects and transportation improvements either alrealy constructed or proposed in the City. These transformations have spurred an economic renaissance in the City. We must work to connect the City to the Metro Rail System to continue to unlock the opportunities associated with the City’s new developments.

METRO CRENSHAW/LAX LINE

Metro is building a new light rail line that will connect the regional Metro rail system to the City of Inglewood. The transit line will include three new stations in Inglewood; the Fairview Heights station near the intersection of Florence Avenue and West Boulevard; the Downtown Inglewood station near the intersection of Florence Avenue and La Brea Avenue, and the Westchester/Veterans station near the intersection of Florence Avenue and Hindry Avenue. The Crenshaw/LAX line is scheduled to open by late 2019.

REVITALIZATION OF
DOWNTOWN INGLEWOOD

Downtown Inglewood, once the heart of the City and commercial center of activity for the community, is now actively in the process of returning to its former self. The City recently adopted a transit oriented development (TOD) plan for the neighborhood which modified zoning and parking regulations to encourage the construction of new pedestrian-friendly and economically robust mixed-use development. The plan focuses on transforming Downtown Inglewood into a pedestrian friendly hub for diners and shoppers. As part of this effort, the City has also awarded developer Thomas Safran & Associates the rights to construct a new mixed-use retail and residential development at the southeast corner of Florence and La Brea Avenues. The City is also partnering with the Los Angeles Philharmonic to relocate their Youth Orchestra of LA (YOLA) headquarters to the corner of Manchester Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, designed by world renowned architect Frank Gehry.

THE FORUM

Constructed in 1967, The Forum, a multi-purpose indoor arena, has served for decades as one of the region’s premiere sports and entertainment venues. In 2014, The Forum underwent a multi-million-dollar renovation and was added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Forum now actively hosts the largest entertainment acts in the country and is scheduled to host events during the 2028 Summer Olympic games.

LA STADIUM & ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT AT HOLLYWOOD PARK

The Hollywood Park Redevelopment project is a new mixed-use, master planned community on the site of the former Hollywood Park racetrack. A signature component of the project includes a stadium that will be home to both the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers teams. Construction of the stadium began in 2014 and is slated for completion by 2020. In addition to the NFL stadium, the project includes residential, retail, office and hotel, as well as 26 acres of recreational space.

PROPOSED INGLEWOOD BASKETBALL AND ENTERTAINMENT CENTER

The NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers basketball team has entered into an Exclusive Negotiating Agreement (ENA) with the City of Inglewood to explore the feasibility of purchasing land from the City for a state of the art Arena. If approved, this project would consist of office space, a sports medicine clinic, retail and other ancillary uses that would include community and youth-oriented spaces, an outdoor plaza, basketball courts, other outdoor community gathering spaces, and parking facilities. The proposed Arena venue will also host other non-sporting events such as concerts, conventions, and corporate events.
