From the time the project kicked off in 2006, through the entitlement process, which began in 2009, to today’s construction activities, ownership has worked consistently with the City of Inglewood and residents to keep the community informed of progress on the site, hear concerns and evolve the partnership with local stakeholders. The outreach team has made regular presentations to:
Additionally, the team has hosted a number of community charrettes and town halls to capture public feedback and sentiment. Ownership has been a proud community partner and participates in annual city-wide community events, including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Hispanic Heritage Day, Thanksgiving Turkey give-away, the Christmas tree lighting ceremony and toy drive along with neighborhood Block Club BBQs and Council District events.
Construction of the stadium is expected to create more than 3,000 jobs with Inglewood residents being given priority placement. Once completed and fully operating, the stadium and retail components are expected to generate thousands of jobs with long-term regional benefits.
Our agreement with the City calls for a 100% union job site, with 30% of the workforce residing near the project area. Additionally, post-construction goals call for an ongoing retention of 35% of total jobs being targeted for local area residents.
We are currently providing job-training programs and hosting quarterly local job fairs to inform and prepare Inglewood residents for these exciting new employment opportunities. Refer to the Opportunities page for more information.
SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park is expected to generate hundreds of millions in new annual economic activity across the greater Los Angeles region.
The City of Inglewood’s general fund is expected to receive tens of millions in revenue annually from SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park. According to initial estimates, the City is expected to receive $13 million in sales tax revenue during construction from equipment and materials purchases alone. The region will benefit through various avenues, including ticket taxes, sales tax from retail operations, property taxes and a hotel occupancy tax. These funds will help balance the budget, improve and expand city services and infrastructure, enhance public safety, and maintain open green space. Revenues from the project also will fund new after-school sports programs.
