Premiership football club Arsenal has submitted plans for this 60,000 seater stadium to be built at Ashburton Grove, about half a mile from the club's current Highbury home in north London. Described by HOK Sport's Rod Sheard as representing 'the most beautiful stadium in the world', the scheme will cost a total of £250 million, half of which will be on the stadium. The other £125 million will go on relocation costs for depots currently on the site while there are also plans for Islington's Lough Road/ Eden Grove area and a new road. The four-tier structure has been designed to be as energy efficient as HOK's Sport's Stadium Australia and will include also the Arsenal museum and club shop, restaurants and bars. The club wants the stadium completed for the 2004/5 season. The current stadium at Highbury is to be redeveloped in a housing scheme by Allies and Morrison. Islington council received applications for all four projects as the AJwent to press. Plans for the new stadium alone stretched to 60 boxes of information.
