      The "Anfield Redevelopment is in progress!" Thread
      Dec 04, 2014 12:17:13 pm
      New thread started, may be merged, but at last redevelopment is starting on

      8th December 2014

      Liverpool FC Anfield stadium development to start on Monday

      Spade to go in the ground after final planning issues ironed out by Liverpool FC

      Liverpool FC will begin construction work on the Anfield stadium redevelopment on Monday.

      The Reds have already been working to clear houses around the ground in preparation for the development, which will see an extra 13,000 seats added to the main stand and Anfield Road end.

      With the fabled spade going in the ground within days, the work is expected to be completed by the beginning of the 2016-17 season.

      In September, the £260m scheme received planning permission from Liverpool City Council with the project expected to create 360 new jobs andbring in an extra £14.5m to the area annually.

      Incorporating the iconic club crest into the proposed Main Stand’s exterior elevation, the scheme will also include a two-storey podium and an area which will become the new home for the Hillsborough Memorial.

      The scheme is part of a wider plan to redevelop the Anfield area, with a series of green spaces around the stadium being announced yesterday .

      Artist impressions of the area show two small parks at Blessington Road’s junction with Walton Breck Road and the triangular area between Hayfield and Gurnall streets. The images also show open paved areas with trees where Blessington Road meets Gorst and Randolph streets.

      The green spaces, which are replacing derelict homes, will include benches and public art. The large brown figures in the images do not represent any particular statues, which have not yet been chosen.

      New image, looks mismatched if you ask me, but not as bad as St.James Park or what ever it's called now.

      Interestingly there are no sponsor details on the seats of the new stand.

      I'd imagine there are mock ups on the desks and screens of MD's all over the world along with a piece of A4 with some seriously heavy numbers on. Warrior? Pffft.

      AT LAST!!!!

      This has been going on for about two decades now, I cannot believe we are finally coming to the end of this 'development hell'.

      Hopefully, this redevelopment lifts a curse of underachievement (by Liverpool standards!) which has been synonymous with the stadium development hell and we grow and thrive from this point onwards.

      YNWA!!!

      Nothing wrong with a mismatched stadium, we are big on them here in Ireland. :laugh:

      The Aviva Stadium


      Croke Park


      Granted, with Croke Park, the mismatched bit is all standing.

      I think it will all look a bit more mismatched and a lookalike of St James Park when they do the Annie Rd end too.

      Of course, the irony of the situation is that, had the council supported plans to rebuild the Main Stand back in the nineties, former owner David Moores would never have needed to have sold the club to Tom Hicks and George Gillett, and expansion would have happened long before now.

      Alas, it hasn't and a series of catastrophic errors has led Liverpool's matchday revenue and capacity to hold the club back. Finally though, progress has been made.


      Read an interesting quote on this.

      Are the dressing rooms etc.. going to be totally ripped out and changed or is the interior of the older section going to remain much the same down near the tunnel?
