The group estimated the project would create 1,200 temporary construction jobs and 1,800 full-time jobs, generating $2.5 million in annual tax revenue. The environmental impact report, arena demolition, and stadium construction were expected to take three years and delay the team's debut to 2018.On May 6, 2016, the Los Angeles City Council approved the stadium, clearing a way for the construction of the stadium.
