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.
