Los Angeles’s convention center wing to be relocated to make way for football stadium

September 19, 2012 |

Plans to tear down and relocate a wing of the Los Angeles Convention Center in order to make room for Farmers Field, a $1.2-billion football stadium proposed nearby by developer Anschutz Entertainment Group, are well underway. The project could cost between $287 million and $358 million, up from last year's estimate of $275 million.

The higher price tag is due in part to a decision to seek additional design elements for the convention center, including a new ballroom that would be the largest in L.A. Consulting firms portrayed the new ballroom as "vitally important" to attract large convention business.
