Document Description
The Project consists of an approximately 915,000-square foot (sf) Arena intended to promote the enjoyment and recreation of the public, and designed to host the LA Clippers basketball team with up to 18,000 fixed seats for National Basketball Association (NBA) games, and with up to 500 additional temporary seats for other events such as family shows, concerts, corporate and community events, and other sporting events; an up to 85,000-square foot team practice and athletic training facility; up to 71,000-square feet of LA Clippers office space; an approximately 25,000 square foot sports medicine clinic; up to 63,000 square feet of ancillary and related arena uses including retail and dining; an outdoor plaza adjacent to the arena; parking facilities; relocation of a City of Inglewood groundwater well; and various circulation, infrastructure, and other ancillary uses (the Project). The Project will also include a limited service hotel. Annually, it is expected that the LA Clippers will host up to five preseason games in October; 41 regular season games from October to mid-April; and an average of three playoff games from April to June based on NBA team averages. Other events such as concerts, family shows, conventions and corporate or civic events, and non-LA Clippers sporting events will take place in the Arena throughout the year, with attendance ranging from small events up to 2,000 attendees (average of 300 attendees) to full Arena capacity. A six-story parking structure containing approximately 3,110 parking spaces will be located within the West Parking Garage Site. A 17-foot-high pedestrian bridge will span South Prairie Avenue, connecting the West Parking Garage to the Arena Site to provide pedestrian access between the second floor of the parking garage to the second floor of the westernmost building in the plaza. The East Transportation and Hotel Site will include a parking garage (approximately 365 spaces) and transportation hub to accommodate private vehicle parking, private or charter bus staging, and Transportation Network Company staging, pick-up and drop-off. The Project will also include a limited-service hotel use with up to 150 rooms on an approximately 1.3-acre portion of the East Transportation and Hotel Site. The hotel could include amenities such as a lobby, business center, a fitness room, a guest laundry facility, a market pantry, and/or an outdoor gathering area. The hotel will be approximately six stories, with a maximum height of approximately 100 feet. Circulation improvements including driveways, signals, a crosswalk, bicycle parking, relocation of two bus stops, improved sidewalks, and a 17-foot tall pedestrian bridge crossing South Prairie Avenue will be included as part of the Project. A portion of West 102nd Street between South Prairie Avenue and South Doty Avenue will be vacated and included within the Arena Site. Approximately 350 linear feet of West 101st Street will be vacated and developed as part of the West Parking Garage Site. The primary vehicular access to the Project Site will be provided along the major corridors of South Prairie Avenue and West Century Boulevard. Before, during, and after LA Clippers basketball games and other large events, the Project will provide shuttle service that will connect the Project Site to the Metro Green Line's Hawthorne/Lennox Station and the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line's La Brea/Florence Station. The shuttle service will drop off and pick up attendees at the shuttle pick-up and drop-off location on the west side of the Arena Site along South Prairie Avenue. The Project will also include identification and advertising signage, graphic display panels or systems, potential illuminated rooftop signage, and wayfinding signage.
