The New Arena
The Clippers are constructing a new basketball arena along with a practice facility, team offices, a medical facility, retail stores, restaurants and parking in Inglewood. The project will be privately financed, meaning there will be no taxpayer dollars spent to build it.
Bringing Back The NBA
It has been 20 years since Inglewood has had a hometown NBA team. Now the City is bringing back professional basketball and enjoying an economic renaissance. With the Rams and Chargers also relocating to Inglewood, the City will soon have a year-round entertainment district rivaling downtown LA.
Creating Local Jobs
This project will be an economic catalyst by creating more than 7,000 construction jobs and up to 1,500 permanent jobs when the complex opens. Hiring locally is a priority. The goal is to fill 30% of the construction related jobs with local residents and give 35% of the permanent jobs to area residents.
Protecting the Environment
This world class arena will achieve the most stringent environmental standards of any sports venue in California history. It will be LEED Gold certified and achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions. The fact that this arena will meet landmark environmental standards is a sign of our commitment to being a good partner to the Inglewood community.
Commitment to the Community
The Clippers arena project is expected to generate more than $100 million in new tax revenue that will be used to improve local parks, libraries, and police and fire services. Additionally, the team is committed to a $100 million community benefits package, which will include investments in after-school programs, services for seniors, libraries and housing
Enriching the Neighborhood
The arena site will be built at the corner of Prairie Avenue and West Century Boulevard. Much of this land has been vacant for more than 20 years.
