Architectural Firm Unveils

Designs for New Stadium

— Times of San Diego

San Diego has hired the global architectural firm Populous  to design a new football facility to replace the 48-year Qualcomm Stadium.

Populous has designed or renovated stadiums for five of the six National Football League team owners serving on the all-important Los Angeles relocation committee.

Architectural renderings released Monday show a venue that could also be used for college holiday-bowl games, soccer tournaments, concerts and civic events. It is designed for 68,000 seats, but could be expanded to 72,000 for a major event like the Super Bowl.

Jon Knight, senior principal at Populous, said the stadium design “incorporates San Diego’s ocean and harbor experience, proud Naval and marine heritage, and the dynamic look and feel of the ocean’s waves.”

Voice Your Opinion


We Want Your Opinions on San Diego’s Big Issues In the coming months, Probosky Research (one of California’s leading opinion research firms) will continue its partnership with SD METRO to survey San Diego residents about topics of interest to our readers. We’d like to throw open the door for suggestions for topics. What do you want to know? What do you think you know, but aren’t sure? What are you certain you know, but want to prove it beyond doubt? Ideally, we’d like to see questions that have to do with public policy.

Some areas may include Mayor Filner’s first 100 days job performance, should the city be responsible for economic growth and the creation of new jobs, how important are infrastructure improvements to our daily lives (streets and bridges, etc.), how important is water independence, how satisfied are residents with public transit or how do city residents value Balboa Park and other open spaces? Do you believe the City Council should revive the Plaza de Panama plan for Balboa Park?
