Chargers Release New Renderings Of Downtown Stadium
The San Diego Chargers released renderings on Thursday that show their vision for a football stadium and convention center expansion in downtown San Diego.
The renderings come two days before the team hosts a signature drive to qualify an initiative for the November ballot. It would raise the city's hotel room tax to pay for the construction of the $1.8 billion stadium and convention center annex.
The signature drive begins at 11 a.m. Saturday at the site for the new facility at 13th and K streets in the East Village.
On its website, the team said:
"This is a conceptual design intended to convey the Chargers’ vision for what the stadium and convention center expansion could look like. The final design will be the result of a design process conducted with the Joint Powers Authority, the City or other governmental entity designated by the City to coordinate the construction of the stadium and convention center expansion, if the Initiative is approved by the voters."
