Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium is beginning to take shape, as a new timelapse video of construction progress at the venue shows.
The stadium at White Hart Lane will be a multi-sports arena with a built-in American Football field and including an extreme sports hub.
The stadium, designed by Populous with BuroHappold Engineering and due to open in August 2018, will also be “future-proofed” to incorporate safe standing for Spurs’ matches should a return to standing be sanctioned by the government.
Another unique feature is the main 17,000 seater stand, which will feature exposed sprinklers in the event of fires. This will allow for a variety of food and beverage outlets to be incorporated.
There will also be two Sky Lounges to the west and east. These are being designed so that in NFL mode the coaching and analysis teams can be positioned in there with uninterrupted views to the playing surface.
For the stadium to transform into NFL mode, the football pitch will slide out underneath the South Stand to reveal an NFL field underneath.
The outside track will drop 6ft to the floor and the soccer pitch will split into three for removal.
Spurs have also opened an impressive website dedicated to the new Stadium. It can be accessed here.
