Chargers present new downtown stadium plan to Coastal Commission
- Updated: September 6, 2013
The San Diego Chargers presented a proposal to the California Coastal Commission that would include a joint-use-stadium-convention center plan in the downtown area, the team announced on Thursday via its website.
The team also announced that it had partnered with Colony Capital LLC in order to take on the task of bringing its longstanding vision to fruition for the downtown, sports arena and Qualcomm sites.
Special counsel Mark Fabiani has long been the go-to person on all issues related to building a new stadium in the San Diego area. He reiterated that the California Coastal Commission has the final say on all development in the state’s coastal areas. Without their approval, no project will get off the ground. Naturally, seeking their blessing is largely the focus.
The project in question proposes a building plan called “Big Box on the Water,” which would be a new facility between the ocean and current convention center site. One issue with that proposal is is that it would block public views to the water. The newest plan calls for a building near East Village that could serve as a multi-purpose site. in improve three San Diego neighborhoods simultaneously.
The Chargers have long sought to build a modern stadium to replace the antiquated Qualcomm Stadium and have the ability to host Super Bowls in the future. The last time San Diego played host to the NFL’s biggest game was in 2003 when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Oakland Raiders.
