Developer Ed Roski Jr. has talked to Industry officials about the possibility of building retail stores instead of an NFL stadium on 600 acres of open space near the junction of the 57 and 60 freeways, Mayor Dave Perez said Thursday.
Perez said Roski is uncertain about whether his plans for an $800 million NFL stadium will ever come to fruition and wants a contingency in place.
“(Roski) doesn’t know where this stadium will go at the end of the day,” Perez said. “I got a feeling if he can still get the football stadium, he would love to have it, but he’s covering all of his bases.”
