The first renderings of the "L.A. Events Center" will be unveiled Wednesday afternoon at a press conference called Tuesday by AEG.

Proposals from three architectural firms will be shown in the 5pm meeting. At a recent Central City Association luncheon, CEO Tim Leiweke said that the group would include Gensler, the architectural firm that oversaw the development of L.A. Live.

ICON Venue Group, an owner's representative firm that has worked with AEG on other stadium projects, will provide a briefing the proposals, including initial cost analysis. Leiweke has maintained that the retractable-roof stadium could be completed for $400 per square foot, or roughly $1 billion.

At the luncheon, Leiweke said that he hopes to see the stadium deal come together in the next three months. For that to happen, deals must be reached with the City of Los Angeles over the Convention Center site and with the NFL over future Super Bowls.
