Finally.

For those who don't want to subscribe, this has been an issue for a few weeks now but now that the project has been greenlighted, all we have to worry about is the Dolan lawsuit. Being that he apparently doesn't have anything in writing, I'm not sure why this can't be done quicker.

Interesting angle. Says that the project "won't effect gentrification". I've sort of said the same thing myself. Once the Ram stadium broke ground, there really wasn't much that could be done to stop gentrification. It was already under way long before Ballmer settled on this site.

Here's a more thorough version of the above link. This has the first look at the floor plan and a separate illustration showing the noise barriers that will be put in place.

For those of you with time on your hands, this is the EIR. Some very interesting tidbits and illustrations in there.

While they briefly went over it in the beginning, they have a more thorough list of alternate sites at the end of the document. The alternate sites included downgrading the project at the current site, moving it closer to downtown Inglewood, the Baldwin Hills location that was my favorite, going across the street and joining Kroenke north of Century, another option that would have him buyout Dolan should he want demolish the Forum and then the Carson site that Ballmer didn't seem so thrilled about in a previous LA Times article.

Very interesting, and very informative. Great link.
I love this arena plan:

I don't answer a lot of the time, but I appreciate you keeping us updated on the developments in the whole relocation issue, keep up the good work!
