Los Angeles Rams stadium breaks ground in Inglewood, California

The new $2.66 billion HKS-designed football stadium for the Los Angeles Rams broke ground in Inglewood, California late last week, bringing the newly-relocated National Football League (NFL) team one step closer toward completing the team’s transition from Saint Louis to Los Angeles.

The stadium, designed by New York–based HKS, features a giant triangular roof supported by thick columns and made of ETFE. This super-roof also spans across an adjacent outdoor lobby called “champions plaza” to be used as a communal gathering spot for game day spectators. Los Angeles–based Mia Lehrer + Associates is acting as landscape architect for the project. The stadium has been designed to accommodate two professional teams and to seat 80,000 spectators for these types of sporting events, with the San Diego Chargers potentially lining up to use the stadium as their new home. The recent election dashed that team’s bid to fund a new stadium in San Diego proper, opening up the potential for the Inglewood stadium to host that team as well as the Rams. HKS has designed to the multi-use stadium to accommodate up to 100,000 spectators for concerts that utilize the playing field for floor seating and the stadium is also being considered as part of the city’s 2024 Olympic bid.

‘Silicon Beach’ Boosts Prices in L.A., and Slowdown Isn’t Likely Soon – Mansion Global

Next week, Snap Inc., the parent company of popular photo messaging app, Snapchat, is expected to go public. If things go according to plan, stocks will be priced at $14 to $16 per share—and the company will be valued at around $20 billion—making this the biggest U.S.-based tech IPO since Facebook went public in 2012. The result, among others, will be a slew of new millionaires ready to snap up real estate in Los Angeles, where Snap is part of a burgeoning tech sector on the city’s Westside. While Google first opened office space in the Frank Gehry Binoculars Building on Venice’s Main Street in 2011 and Snap started operating out of a nearby beach bungalow in 2013, today, both companies have spread out into additional office space and nearby neighborhoods. They now work alongside other tech giants like IMAX and Sony Playstation, as well as growing, but smaller, startups like Dog Vacay and Dollar Shave Club. The concentration of these businesses in the beachside (and nearby) communities of Venice, Playa Vista and Culver City have earned this area a catchy title: Silicon Beach.
