Taylor Tulip & Hunter has got the go-ahead to expand St James' Park for football club Newcastle United. The practice, which designed the £22 million 1995 redevelopment of the stadium and a failed bid for a £65 million new stadium, is upping capacity at St James' by 14,000, taking the total to 51,000. It is building new 'layers' of seating to be suspended above the existing west, north and north-west stands. The design, with structural work by hjt Consulting Engineers, incorporates what is thought to be the world's longest cantilever span at 64.5m. A new main entrance will incorporate a four-storey glazed atrium and five floors of parking within the revamped North Stand.
