DOWNTOWN: While news continues to percolate about that downtown NFL stadium, which architect is AEG is looking to hire? "There are no designs yet, not that I am aware of," says AEG spokesperson Michael Roth. "But there may be [designs], I could walk into a meeting, and there could be a model." So there may be a model out there. At this point, one would think AEG would go with whomever designed the Staples Center (NBBJ) or whomever designed the master plan for LA Live (RTKL). Dan Meis, who used to work at NBBJ, also designed the city of Industry stadium. [Curbed Staff] UPDATE*: Hold up, we were just playing fantasy football with this post, if that wasn't clear. More from Roth: "Since AEG isn't pursuing a stadium at this time, we are not looking to hire an architect."
DOWNTOWN: The CRA put out a press release this afternoon announcing the imminent return of the Bunker Hill goats, who will eat the weeds of the hill. The four-legged animals will be in downtown for a week starting July 6th. Maybe the goats can start a football team, too. [Curbed InBox]
