Facility Notes

In San Diego, Mark Walker reports members of San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer's staff "sat down" yesterday with Chargers Special Counsel to the President Mark Fabiani for "preliminary talks about a new stadium" for the team. While "no major developments emerged, the meeting signals the city’s and Chargers’ desire to move stadium negotiations into a new phase." The Chargers "may be ready to talk about" the Qualcomm Stadium site in Mission Valley as the venue for a new stadium. One "emerging scenario suggests building a stadium" adjacent to Qualcomm Stadium, with the team "continuing to play there until the new one is complete" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 4/10).

PEDALING UPHILL: In Phoenix, Parker Leavitt reports plans for a $20M USA BMX HQs and race track in Gilbert "appear to be on hold as officials weigh residents' concerns about noise, traffic and funding against the potential for economic development and tourism." The project "would bring a 4,000-seat arena, museum and public park to 10 acres of town-owned land." USA BMX officials last year "selected Gilbert as the preferred site for its racing headquarters after a nationwide site-selection process, and negotiations on a development agreement have spanned several months" (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 4/10).

TWO FOR ONE: In Daytona Beach, Eileen Zaffiro-Kean reported the planned One Daytona mixed-use project "has its first two tenants" in Cobb Theatres and Bass Pro Shops. The two businesses will "anchor the complex in one-of-a-kind modern structures expected to wow visitors." Atlanta-based Jacoby Development is "partnering with International Speedway Corp. on One Daytona" (Daytona Beach NEWS-JOURNAL, 4/9).
