Rams Take Crucial Next Step Toward New Headquarters

The Los Angeles Rams have been back in California for more than seven years, built a new $5 billion stadium, and even won a Super Bowl since returning from St. Louis — but the NFL team is still working to establish more permanent roots.

The Stan Kroenke-owned team continues to press forward on its long-planned development project in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, filing paperwork on an initiative to build a new team training facility and team headquarters in Woodland Hills, California. 

The development — to be built on land assembled through three separate tracts costing a combined $650 million — would incorporate practice fields and offices, as well as restaurants, hotels, and residences.

“Our long-term goal is to build a facility that will include team headquarters and a practice facility in Woodland Hills,” said a team spokesman.

It’s a major step up from the team’s current situation. The Rams practice at a temporary facility at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks — nearly 50 miles from SoFi Stadium as opposed to the 30-mile distance between the stadium and Woodland Hills — and now has its business offices in Agoura Hills.

An interim practice facility is projected for a January opening in advance of the larger, permanent phases of construction. The complex, however, isn’t projected to replace the Rams’ staging of training camp at the University of California-Irvine.

The new team headquarters will build on Kroenke’s existing $12.8 billion sports empire that spans his ownership of the Rams, the NBA’s Denver Nuggets, NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids in MLS, and the National Lacrosse League’s Colorado Mammoth.
