The effort to bring an NFL team to Los Angles is progressing, even if the labor negations aren't.
AEG, which has proposed to build a stadium in downtown Los Angeles, has selected Gensler to design the estimated $1 billion the stadium.
Gensler has never designed an NFL stadium but has done work in L.A. before, including the creation of a 54-story hotel and residence tower.
The company beat out HNTB, which designed Invesco Field at Mile High in Denver and HKS, which is responsible for Lucas Oil Stadium and Cowboys Stadium.
The way we see it
The city of L.A. hasn't had a team since 1995 and it is still not a sure thing that a team will come. On top of convincing a franchise to move, the city still has to OK the relocation of part of its convention center to accomodate the downtown stadium location.
