The company building the Intuit Dome, the soon-to-be new home of the Los Angeles Clippers, has now installed a steel cover on the roof of the building — marking a milestone in construction

The dome is being constructed in Inglewood by the international design firm AECOM. Crews broke ground on the new structure in September 2021, and it’s expected to open for the 2024/25 NBA season.

“This is going to be an unbelievable building, a great experience to come into,” Jerry West, NBA Hall of Famer and Clippers consultant, said in a statement. “This should be a fantastic venue for everyone coming in to watch.”

Controversy about the project

The Intuit Dome's construction hasn't been without controversy. While some say the new arena will benefit the community, others argue it — and other new construction, including SoFi Stadium — will speed up gentrification and push out existing residents.

"We're just seeing massive displacement of primarily the low-income and working class community of Inglewood that's been there for decades," one Inglewood resident told our newsroom’s AirTalk program in 2021.

According to the company’s website, the new facility is designed to mimic the look and feel of “the elegant form of a basketball net as a ball passes through it.” It will feature five basketball courts, more than any other NBA arena.

The structure will be indoor-outdoor, incorporating a plaza with bars and a restaurant. The exterior will be “solar-optimized.”

Software company Intuit has a 23-year contract for naming rights.
