I just chatted with Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani for an update on the team’s stadium push. He said the team had just had an “encouraging meeting” with the principals from HomeFed Corp.
The residential homebuilder owns about 3,000 acres in Chula Vista’s Otay Ranch area and has expressed interest in teaming with the Chargers on a stadium-and-development package in the South Bay city.
“It’s actually shaping up a lot better than people might have anticipated. The HomeFed people are very serious business people and they have some ideas about how this might pencil out for them and for us and for Chula Vista,” Fabiani said.
Team engineers are working on cost estimates for the infrastructure at the National City site and Fabiani had separate meetings with county officials and a representative from San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders’ office.
