Toffees unveil new stadium design

August 14, 2019 by NSC in Weekly News
Everton football club has revealed the proposed designs for its new 52,000 capacity stadium, which could provide a massive boost to Liverpool’s economy.

Images of the waterfront stadium, to be built at the Bramley Moore Dock site, have been unveiled by architect Dan Meis.

Research carried out by international property consultancy CBRE suggests the development would provide £1bn to the local economy and up to 15,000 new jobs, in turn generating £34M of income to local families.

“This marks an incredibly important milestone for us as we seek to build a new stadium which will act as a ‘game changer’ for the Club and our city region,” said Everton CEO Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale.

“It is, first and foremost, a stadium for football, for our passionate fans and for our players.

“It is also a stadium for the entire city and a development which will deliver transformative benefits in terms of regeneration and inclusive growth for the whole Liverpool City Region and for North Liverpool in particular.”

Taking inspiration from the historic maritime and warehouse buildings nearby, the design of both north and south stand lower tiers will make it easy to adopt rail seating and, should legislation change in the future, these areas could be converted for safe standing.
