While all eyes are on the spacey Lucas Museum of Narrative Art that’s in the process of touching down in Exposition Park, a brand new, $350 million Banc of California Stadium is quietly and steadily being built on the former site of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

The Gensler-designed soccer stadium—the future home of the Los Angeles Football Club—is not the only stadium underway or in the planning stages in Los Angeles, but it stands out among the crowd.

Its sleek, open-air design will be paired with fancy, high-end perks. “We are designing this project with NFL-type amenities,” design director Jonathan Emmett tells Los Angeles magazine. Translation: There will be retail galore, exclusive private suites, and a rooftop bar for all the soccer hooligans.

Folks can check in on some live cameras documenting the goings-on at the site, but the stadium’s Instagram is also doing a good job keeping track of the progress on the stadium, which has been scheduled to open in time for the LAFC’s 2018 season.

The venue is rising on the grave of the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, which once hosted Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Bruce Springsteen, who famously called the place “The Dumps That Jumps”).
