Los Angeles is hotly anticipating hosting the 2022 Super Bowl, the 2028 Summer Olympics and, potentially, the 2026 World Cup — and is in the midst of a $15 billion modernization of Los Angeles International Airport, and the construction of a $4 billion, 298-acre NFL stadium and real estate development that will be the most expensive U.S. stadium ever built. What’s more, both the LAX and stadium projects are being financed by private investors. Our guest, Sean Burton, is president of the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners, and a former member of the Los Angeles Planning Commission, where he oversaw approval of the NFL stadium. He is also CEO of Cityview, an investment management and development firm.
