Sydney's ANZ Stadium To Provide Fans With Glimpse Of Redevelopment Plans
Fans are "set to get their first look at detailed plans to redevelop" ANZ Stadium, the "home of the Sydney Olympics," within the next five weeks, according to the AAP. ANZ Stadium operators said on Thursday that they had "received submissions from two construction giants bidding for the right to upgrade the arena and its surrounding precinct." Brookfield Multiplex and Laing O’Rourke will "officially present their ideas, including design concepts, full cost and timing schedules, to an evaluation committee made up of a number of stakeholders, in coming days." It is hoped that "planning of construction work" on the reported A$250M ($235M) redevelopment "will begin next year, pending necessary funding." The stadium is "expected to get a retractable roof, new seating closer to the field of play, as well as better facilities in and around the stadium," as outlined in a New South Wales government masterplan released last year (AAP, 6/26).
