We have some new renderings and information about the new home of the Premier League’s Tottenham Spurs that will also serve as an NFL London stadium, hosting two games per season.
The facility is being pitched as much more than just a football stadium: it’s being billed as a destination unto itself, with a 180-room hotel, club megastore, museum, cinema and café. In addition, housing is part of the mix. Some of the features are designed for the usage as a NFL London stadium, including separate locker rooms and two separate tunnels for incoming players. From the Architect’s Journal:
A planning statement submitted with the application said: ‘During this significant delay in securing these [earlier] approvals, the regeneration context has changed considerably and so too has the club’s own requirements and needs of the stadium and associated development, as well as the technical requirements and specifications demanded for world class stadia.’
Allies and Morrison has drawn up a design code for the development of 585 new homes next to the stadium, which have been submitted for outline planning.
The design code establishes rules on external appearance and internal layout that will need to be followed when any detailed designs are submitted.
The new stadium will hold 61,000, which would make it the largest stadium in British soccer (Emirates Stadium holds ). In addition to Spurs matches, the NFL has reportedly committed to two matches a season under a 10-year deal.
