AEG's L.A. Stadium Plan Facing Tough Questions Ahead Of Presentation

GRAND OPENING: In L.A., Austin Knoblauch reported Majestic Realty is "no longer using the City of Industry when referring to the location" of its proposed NFL stadium just outside L.A., a change made "at the request of the NFL." Majestic Realty VP John Semcken said that the project now is known as "Grand Crossing." Semcken: "I was specifically asked if I could change the name of the city by the National Football League, and I said yes and I did it. It's an impression that they have, which was a negative impression, and there's no reason to have it. You just get rid of it." He added that City of Industry "had no objections to the name change" (LATIMES.com, 3/3). Semcken noted that he "borrowed the Grand Crossing name from an industrial development that Majestic built nearby" (ESPNLA.com, 3/3).
