Construction progress update for Intuit Dome - time is running out


Construction of the new L.A. Clippers home in Inglewood, known as the Intuit Dome, is entering its final stages after a two-year process and a cost of over $2 billion. Clippers President Gillian Zucker shared that while most interior work is complete, the focus is now shifting to the exterior.


Zucker mentioned the progress of various elements in what they refer to as an "urban oasis." This includes the development of a band shell, the construction of an outdoor basketball court, and the final touches on surrounding buildings. The plan is to create a park-like environment with restaurants, retail stores, bars, and Spanish steps in a canopy, allowing fans to relax and immerse themselves in the middle of Inglewood.


The architects have incorporated a sunken garden to provide green space for guests and offer a refreshing view for the players, whose state-of-the-art practice area will face this area. The aim is to have an open environment where fans can watch players during their routines, which is considered a progressive concept in professional sports.


Seating inside the dome is still being worked on, with the goal of providing fans with a closer proximity to the action compared to any other arena of its kind. Additionally, the players will have access to outdoor amenities such as a fire pit space, a patio, an outdoor training area, and a saltwater swimming pool.


While there is excitement surrounding the creation of this cutting-edge sports arena in Southern California, there is also a sense of urgency as the venue is set to host Bruno Mars as the opening act on August 15th.
