The Inglewood Basketball and Entertainment Center would consist of an arena designed to host the LA Clippers basketball team with up the 18,000 fixed seats for National Basketball Association (NBA) games. The arena could also be configured with up to 500 additional temporary seats for events such as family shows, concerts, conventions and corporate events, and non-LA Clippers sporting events. In addition, the project would include an ~85,000 sf team practice an athletic training facility; ~71,000 sf of LA Clippers team office space; an ~25,000 sf sports medicine clinic for team and potential general public use; ~ 63,000 sf of ancillary retail, restaurant, community space, and similar uses; an outdoor plaza, related parking facilities, and an ~150 room hotel.
In addition to the base project, two variants to circulation infrastructure are being considered: (1) the West Century Boulevard Pedestrian Bridge Variant, which would include a pedestrian bridge connecting the arena site to the Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park; and (2) the Alternate Prairie Access Variant, under which owners of two residential parcels (one with a single-family home and one with a triplex) south of West 102nd Street and South Prairie Avenue would be offered voluntary residential acquisition assistance and would be removed to allow the arena building and a drop-off area to be shifted slightly to the south. The West Century Boulevard Pedestrian Bridge Variant could be combined with either the base project or the Alternate Prairie Access Variant, and would not change the APNs included in either.
