Developers of the proposed $4 billion SoccerCity on Thursday released revisions to their plan to redevelop the Qualcomm Stadium site, but the proposal again was swiftly rejected by San Diego State University.
A campus leader said the changes didn't do much to improve the offer the university turned down months ago, calling it unacceptable and "a complete hijack" of public land. On Tuesday, SDSU had said it was ending all negotiations over the plan.
San Diego State University broke off discussions Tuesday to share a soccer stadium in Mission Valley, saying the proposal from La Jolla developers does not meet the athletic and academic needs of the campus. SDSU has been in talks with Mayor Kevin Faulconer to jointly use a 30,000-seat stadium proposed in the $4 billion SoccerCity redevelopment of Qualcomm Stadium property. The proposal is contained in a ballot initiative headed to the City Council next month and a possible special election Nov. 7.
