The Clippers campus will achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions through a combination of carbon offset credits and sustainable design features.
The project is being developed by Wilson Meany, a developer heralded for its transformative mixed-use residential, retail, office and master-planned properties.
Chris Meany of Wilson Meany, said:
We challenged the architects and designers on this project to create a landmark facility that exceeds current environmental standards and they have surpassed expectations. The new Clippers arena demonstrates that environmental protection and economic development need not be mutually exclusive.
The project is expected to create an estimated 10,000 construction jobs and more than 1,500 permanent jobs, with local hire components in place to fill 30 percent of available construction jobs with local labor and 35 percent of the available arena operation jobs with local residents. When completed, the complex will generate an estimated US$268 million in economic activity for Inglewood annually, and more than US$190 million in new tax revenue from 2020-2045. That revenue will help support vital city services such as schools, parks, libraries and police and fire stations.
Mayor James T. Butts, said:
We are excited to welcome the nation’s most philanthropic sports team to Inglewood. Over the past three years, the Ballmers and the Clippers have repeatedly demonstrated their commitment to improving communities like Inglewood. The Clippers’ presence in our city will create a sustainable revenue source and boost civic pride, revitalizing our community for years to come.
The Inglewood Basketball & Entertainment Center was designed by AECOM, a Los Angeles-based architectural, engineering and construction management and services firm, headed by Bill Hanway, Global Sports Leader at AECOM. Hanway also leads the AECOM team providing design, engineering and construction strategy services for the Los Angeles 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Anderson Barker Architects and City Design Studio of Los Angeles designed the plaza buildings, while Hood Studios of California provided the landscape architecture.
