KSS reveals Tottenham's Olympic site plans

KSS has unveiled the first images of its proposed stadium for Tottenham Hotspur Football Club at the Olympic Park site.

If the north London club’s bid is successful against Premier League rival West Ham United, it would build a new “soccer-friendly” 60,000-seat arena on the site of the Populous-designed Olympic stadium.

West Ham United, meanwhile, would keep the existing stadium together with the athletics track.

Last month David Keirle, chairman of KSS and lead architect for Spurs, told BD the proposals were sustainable and not a waste of taxpayer¹s money.

He said: “We would take down about 20% of the value of the project by dismantling the stadium, taking down pretty much everything above ground, which was always the legacy plan.”

Tottenham’s plans have been heavily criticised by MPs and former mayor of London Ken Livingstone, who called the proposals “obscene”.

A decision on the future tenant is expected later this month.

  • Wow, that looks really nice. Oh no, wait a minute, what's the opposite of nice?

    As a side salad, where are the Hertfordshire branch of Tottenham supporters (by that I mean all their fans) going to park? On the grass?

  • Londoners: This is your Olympic parc! You should rise up against someone intending to build a plastic-clad toilet seat in front of a crippled Eiffel tower (althought I must admit with the stadium in the foreground the Anish tower for the first time looks relatively bareable.
    If you want to see how an Olympic Parc can be, go to Munich, or Sydney, and then you really need to ask yourself what has gone wrong with architects and planners proposing this...

    We need to replace the mangled Eiffel Tower with a straight one, too.

    Daniel Behr is right. The toilet seat sitting in front of the terror attacked Eiffel Tower is perhaps not the best Olympic park legacy.

  • shameful, totally shameful. Do local authorities or central government have any civic pride or self respect any more.
