Everton FC unveils designs for new waterfront stadium in Liverpool, UK

WCN Editorial Team 29 Jul 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Everton Football Club has unveiled designs for its proposed stadium, which would be built on semi-derelict dockland in North Liverpool in England, UK.

Architect Dan Meis revealed the images of the stadium, which is expected to deliver a £1bn boost to the city’s economy.

The design shows a brick, steel and glass structure, which takes inspiration from the historic maritime and warehouse buildings nearby.

The brick base of the stadium incorporates the Goodison Park’s Archibald Leitch lattice work, while the steel and glass roof structure gives the stadium a modern finish.

The stadium comprises four stands, including a large, steep home stand to the south that will accommodate 13,000 Evertonians on matchdays.

The design of the North and South stand lower tiers will facilitate rail seating and could also be converted into areas for safe standing in the future.

The Club has also revealed plans for the redevelopment of Goodison Park to create community assets such as homes, health, education and enterprise amenities, as well as public space that will include a tribute to the Club’s current home of 127 years.

The Club has launched a month-long public consultation into the plans, which have been called The People’s Project.

After completion of the final detailed design work, the Club will submit two planning applications – a detailed application for Bramley-Moore Dock and an outline application for Goodison Park. These are expected to be submitted before the end of 2019.

Construction of the stadium is expected to boost Liverpool’s economy and kick-start major regeneration in the north of the city.

Everton CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: “Our proposed stadium design takes its inspiration from both our city’s maritime history and from our Club’s rich heritage and traditions.

“It is, first and foremost, a stadium for football, for our passionate fans and for our players. A stadium that gives Everton Football Club a platform for growth both commercially and socially. But 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.

“Our plans for Goodison Park, although much more outlined at this stage, fulfil our promise to our neighbours in Liverpool 4 to work together to create something that will benefit the community for generations to come.”
