Pickett's Lock in London's Lea Valley will be the site of a new 50,000 seat £110 million stadium and 3000-bed accommodation complex for the 2005 World Athletics Championships. The decision comes after the International Amateur Athletics Federation awarded the games to London last weekend. It will mean the appointment of an architect and developer this June. uk Athletics facilities manager David Young said that around six architects, including hok + Lobb, the designers of the new Wembley and Stadium Australia, are under consideration. Tottenham Hotspur FC is rumoured as a partner to take on the stadium. A new railway station is already planned for Pickett's Lock on the Cambridge to Liverpool Street line.
