Clippers, city of Inglewood negotiate on proposed new arena

The Inglewood City Council unanimously approved an exclusive negotiating agreement with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday that could lead to the construction of an arena for the NBA team across the street from the future home of the NFL's Chargers and Rams.

The arena would be privately funded and no public money would be used for the project, said Gillian Zucker, Clippers president of business operations.

"I have said from day one that we need to plan for the future," team owner Steve Ballmer wrote in a letter to Clippers fans. "This agreement helps us do that by expanding our options."

Inglewood City Council Approves Clippers Arena Project

The Inglewood City Council Thursday morning unanimously approved an exclusive negotiating agreement for development  of an NBA basketball arena for the Los Angeles Clippers on a 22-acre plot of city-owned land.

According to city council documents, the agreement outlines a three-year negotiating period with a developer planning to build "a premier and state-of- the-art National Basketball Association professional basketball arena consisting of approximately 18,000 to 20,000 seats."

That window also gives the Clippers three years to conduct an environmental review of the project.

Inglewood Mayor James Butts described the council's approval to CBS2 as a "promise ring."

Inglewood will vote on deal for Clippers to explore new arena

As round-the-clock construction continues on the $2.6-billion stadium for the  Rams and  Chargers in Inglewood, the resurgent city is moving toward adding another team.

Inglewood's City Council will vote Thursday on an exclusive negotiating agreement for a  Clippers-controlled company to build an arena for the team, according to a copy of the document.

The 22 acres for the arena are across the street from the 298-acre site where Rams owner Stan Kroenke is building the stadium as part of a sprawling mixed-use development.

The Rams aren't involved in the Clippers' arena project, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation, though representatives of Kroenke and the Clippers had multiple discussions about the team joining the Rams' project that's scheduled to be completed in 2020 or building on an adjacent parcel.

Inglewood City Council OKs negotiations for new Clippers arena

Inglewood City Council unanimously voted in favor Thursday of a negotiating agreement on the development of a "premier and state-of-the-art" basketball arena with seating capacity of 18,000 to 20,000.

The property is located on about 22 acres of land between Prairie and Yukon Avenue and bordered on the north by Century Boulevard. Much of the land is owned by the city of Inglewood, according to city documents.

Inglewood City Council members spoke almost universally in favor of the plan. "Inglewood is not going to be the place to drive through, but the place to drive to, and this is part of that," one Inglewood city councilman said.


Inglewood in talks to build new Clippers arena across from NFL stadium

Maybe sharing a stadium is okay for the Rams and Chargers, but the Clippers appear to be getting fed up with sharing their venue.  ABC7 reports that the Inglewood City Council voted unanimously Thursday to start negotiating an agreement with the basketball team that would bring an 18,000- to 20,000-seat basketball arena to the city.

The news station reports the property that Inglewood is considering for the Clippers arena measures 22 acres and is located just across the street from LA's future NFL stadium site. The land, located between Prairie and Yukon Avenue south of Century Boulevard, is mostly owned by the city. The Clippers would put a new arena, plus offices and a training facility on the site.
