The latest images of Tottenham Hotspur’s new £850m stadium show how much of a landmark the ground will become on the London skyline.
Spurs’ aim was always to create an iconic building for the capital and the latest photos taken from the club’s cranes around the construction site show that is set to become a reality in the near future.
Crews are working night and day to ensure that Tottenham’s target of using the new ground for the 2018/19 Premier League season is met, to avoid the club having to secure a second season at Wembley stadium.
Work moved quickly to remove all of the remaining part of White Hart Lane from the site, with the final remnants of the south stands taken away last month. Contractors Mace will now concentrate on completing the outer bowl of the stadium as well as the buildings which will surround Spurs‘ £850m new stadium.
Here are a gallery of images of the new Spurs stadium, taken today by the club:
Down the road, Arsenal are planning to increase the capacity at the Emirates by around 800 seats. The project – labelled ‘Operation Saturn’ – will see the extra numbers added to the existing club level seating at the ground. Arsenal are currently in talks with Islington Council about the project.
That ground, which is currently being built beside and on top of the remnants of the bulldozed White Hart Lane, will open in time for the 2018/19 season with a capacity of 61,559.
