    A new investor group released an artist rendering that shows part of their proposed redevelopment plans for Qualcomm Stadium. The rendering includes a 55-acre river park, lots of trees and greenery. NBC 7’s Chris Chan reports. (Published Monday, Feb. 20, 2017)

    The group vying to bring Major League Soccer to San Diego in a new, privately-financed stadium in Mission Valley said it was going to reveal more details of its plan in due time and they are making good on that.

    On Sunday the group led by FS Investors founder Mike Stone and former Qualcomm Executive Steve Altman released an artist’s rendering of what they think the proposed 55-acre River Park would look like.

    Along with that photo comes the promise of more information to be shared in a Monday morning press conference where a detailed concept plan for the site is expected to be presented. That plan includes a new stadium to be used by a MLS expansion team and the San Diego State football program … a 55-acre River Park … and a sports and entertainment area with shops and restaurants, kind of like the Gaslamp Quarter in Downtown San Diego.

    The investment group says it has new renderings of the land to illustrate in better detail the various features of the proposed Mission Valley redevelopment project, which would still include an untouched parcel of land that would be set aside for the possibility of building a new NFL stadium.

    NBC 7 will have full coverage of the unveiling on www.nbc7.com and NBC 7 News.
