Spurs show off new stadium proposals
Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has released images of its redesigned stadium proposals in north London
The reworked plans include a ‘tighter’ 58,000 ground, designed by architects the KSS Group, and a revamp of the surrounding area which is being masterminded by Make Architects and Martha Schwartz.
The new scheme will feature a public square on Tottenham High Road, a 150-bedroom hotel, 450 homes, shops, club museum and a ‘dedicated space for community events’ which has already been earmarked for a temporary ice rink and street markets.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said: ‘We have spent the past few months further developing our plans, adding new elements, responding to feedback and evolving the scheme to where it is now.
‘Too often new stadiums are surrounded by empty, dead space and we did not want that in Tottenham. Instead, with these new plans for the public square and public space, we have embraced the opportunity to create something truly special for local people.’
According to Levy the more compact stadium will allows fans ‘to be closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium in the UK’.
An exhibition showcasing the new proposals runs until next Tuesday (7 April)
