Tottenham Hotspur Seeks Help Of Arsenal, Olympic Stadium Designers For New Stadium
EPL Tottenham’s plans for a new home "have taken a twist as the club confirmed it has appointed the architects responsible for the Olympic Stadium to come up with new designs" -- increasing the likelihood that the current plans for a 56,000 arena may be ditched, according to Alex Miller of the London EVENING STANDARD. Officials including Tottenham Chair Daniel Levy "have worked with London-based architects KSS to produce the current designs for a new stadium." However, Levy "now wants to explore alternative designs and has turned to Populous, the company behind the Olympic Stadium, the new Wembley and the Emirates stadium, the home of rivals Arsenal -- for fresh ideas." The revelation "will disappoint fans eager to see the club move into a new, larger stadium." Further delays "now seem likely and club officials have yet to indicate when work will begin on the stadium, although work is close to completion on a supermarket on the development site" (EVENING STANDARD, 9/6).
