Update - New Chargers Stadium in Downtown San Diego DelayedThe plan of having The Chargers in the East Village/Ballpark District in Downtown San Diego has moved closer to an agreement but the possible project might not happen until the spring of 2013.

The Chargers have decided not to break its lease with the City of San Diego this year as it would cost them about $24 million. For each year that passes all the way up to 2020, the Chargers would be able to relocate by paying a fee to the city that decreases with about $2 to $3 million a year.

There have been discussions about if The Chargers would change their current location to San Diego or Los Angeles but for now it seems like its leaning closer to San Diego as Los Angeles stadium plans have slowed down.

Another idea that has been talked about is the plan that would combine the Convention Center Expansion and the New East Village Charger Stadium. Both Dean Spanos and Sanders spokesmen have now announced that they are looking for common ground.

Downtown San Diego Condos and Downtown San Diego Loft homeowners are all in support of this infrastructure and the value that these developments would have on businesses and the different neighborhoods in Downtown.
