LOS ANGELES (AP) — The company planning a football stadium in downtown Los Angeles has selected the architecture firm Gensler as the proposed venue’s designer.

AEG said in a release Friday that the Los Angeles-headquartered architecture firm’s selection represented a milestone in the planned 64,000-seat stadium’s development.

Gensler was one of three finalists, along with Kansas City, Mo.-based HNTB and Dallas-headquartered HKS, that AEG was considering as architect for the venue that planners say will cost some $1 billion.

The firm was also the principal architect of AEG’s adjacent Staples Center indoor arena.

AEG is vying with planners of a rival NFL stadium proposal about 15 miles east of Los Angeles in the city of Industry. Neither has secured a team.
