Retailers like gyms, grocery and department stores have traditionally played a crucial role as anchor tenants. But recent studies have flagged sports stadiums as having the potential to rival traditional anchors, generating millions, if not billions, of dollars. The recent attention has pushed developers to take a deeper look at sports stadiums.

One big question for them: what happens when the stadium lights dim? Listen to industry experts Ersal Ozdemir, founder and owner of real estate development company Keystone Group and American soccer team Indy Eleven, and Jim Renne, JLL's national director for sports entertainment project development, chat about the creation of authentic communities, the life of stadiums beyond game days, and the economic drivers beyond these projects.
