The L.A. Clippers have unveiled renderings and details for their new basketball arena. The new arena and entertainment center will be located in Inglewood and will include the team’s business and basketball offices, training facility, community and retail spaces. The project is aiming for completion in the fall of 2024, following the end of the Clipper’ lease at the Staples Center.
The arena’s design will have a three-dimensional oval design that will feature an exterior of diamond-shaped metal panels that were inspired by the concept of a basketball swishing through a net. The panels will also provide solar benefit for maximum energy efficiency, as part of the facility’s LEED GOLD-certified design.
“My goal is simple. I want the Clippers to have the best home in all of sports. What that means to me is an unparalleled environment for players, for fans, for sponsors and for the community of Inglewood. Our goal is to build a facility that re-sets fans’ expectations while having a transformative impact on the city we will call home.” - Clippers Chairman Steve Ballmer
