The University of Southern California’s iconic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum’s renovation is now underway, with a name change and timeline in place.

Earlier this month, a joint venture of Hathaway Dinwiddie and AECOM was chosen to manage the $270 million project of the now-named United Airlines Memorial Coliseum

The Project

Built in 1923, the renovation will add new amenities, upgrade facilities and restore some of the structure’s more iconic features to their original designs, according to the project’s website.

The most drastic change—and one that has season ticketholders anxious—is that the facility’s capacity is dropping from 93,607 to 77,500. The 16,000-seat casualty is from the installation of handrails, the addition of more aisles and also widened seats with more legroom.

These tweaks, along with giant screens and a new concourse, were designed by DLR Group, and are expected to be completed in time for the 2019 home opener. (Although, the firms hope to have the major seat renovations done in time for the 2018 season.)

The construction can be viewed via a live feed here.
