The Curb Appeal of the Hollywood Park Design

by | Mar 20, 2023

Hollywood Park is a popular spot located in the Inglewood neighborhood of Los Angeles. Perhaps best known as the home of Sofi Stadium (anyone remember the 2022 Super Bowl?), it also houses the YouTube Theater and is home to more than 250+ annual events. The park is nine miles from downtown Los Angeles and three from the Los Angeles International Airport.

We categorize this as a civic project considering it’s the citizens of LA that are the guests and end-users. Our work is integral to how people use and see the park. JGM assisted Lead Architect HKS in providing design for non-stadium projects associated with the stadium. JGM reviewed and coordinated all design activities related to non-stadium projects. So, when you think of parking lots, landscape design, and all the utilities around Sofi Stadium, think of JGM. We helped design some of the first interactions guests experience with this civic center, like getting to your parking spot and the landscaping leading to your venue entry.

A highlight of our work in Hollywood Park includes a 27-acre Lake Project. JGM is serving as the lead architect for generating and coordinating Construction Documents for the pump station and the park’s restroom facilities. The lake is centrally located in Hollywood park and has a shoreline measuring 2,900 feet. This shoreline will provide a respite in the middle of a busy city for surrounding residents, park visitors, and event guests. 

This grand park spans over 298 acres and is home to the sprawling Hollywood Park Casino, YouTube Theater, and Sofi Stadium. Presently, the retail district of Hollywood Park is being developed into a live-and-shop lifestyle center, that will also include a 12-screen movie theater all nearing completion over the next few years.

Hollywood Park was first established in 1938 as a thoroughbred horse race course and operated through December 2013. Since the racecourse’s closure, the grounds have been transformed through massive development. Demolition started in 2014 with more phases of demo in 2015 with development into the landmark event centers it is home to today.
