Tottenham Hotspur FC submits planning for new stadium

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (Spurs) has submitted a planning application to London Borough of Haringey for the Northumberland Development Project, which includes KSS’ design proposals for a new 56,000-capacity stadium. The move marks a major milestone in the club’s desire to build a new venue at its historic home to compete with the best in the UK.

“Our desire from the outset has been to create a scheme of major benefit for local people and to deliver the most fan-friendly stadium in Europe,” said Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham Hotspur FC. “The inclusion of a new single-tier stand combined with a fantastic stadium design demonstrates our absolute commitment to create the most atmospheric stadium for our supporters. Our fans will have an exceptional view of the action and will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium. We have also embraced environmental sustainability as part of the plans, delivering a 40% reduction in carbon emissions against current building regulations, which will make it one of the best performing of its kind in the UK.”

“Throughout the whole design process we have continued to refine the designs to maximise stadium atmosphere, including a reduction in the space allocated to corporate areas in order to deliver the new single-tier stand,” said David Keirle, project director at KSS. “The acoustics will be excellent, with the bowl design helping to reflect sound back onto the pitch whilst the stadium architecture itself responds to the Spurs identity, using flowing lines and a gracefully undulating roof to create a visually striking building.”

KSS has worked with Tottenham Hotspur FC for over seven years. As well as being the architect for the new stadium, it is also responsible for the club’s new training centre. KSS has also worked closely with the club in preparing proposals that will enable the stadium to act as a candidate host venue as part of England’s 2018 World Cup bid.

“Tottenham Hotspur Football Club’s provisional designs for its new stadium are very impressive,” said Andy Anson, chief executive of England 2018 Ltd. “Potential England 2018 host cities will deliver their final bid submissions to us in November and we fully expect the stadium to be one of those included as a potential host venue for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bid. We wish the club every success with its plans.”
