Amazed that they can get that amount of work done while we've all been watching like hawks. I don't think anyone predicted the thing would be so polished at this point. (Of course, it still requires the flap sections, but still.)
I'd guess it was delivered like that.

They've put some cladding up on the outside of the East upper.

Yes, it should be very hard to get the colours wrong. Page one stuff. Clubs have their own livery colour specifications, as do most companies, for consistency.
For the record, Tottenham Navy Blue is PMS 282C

It's the latest one I could find but that's not to say there isn't slightly newer RAL codes for 2017-18. Even if there is, can't imagine they will be vastly different.

Edit. For the record the Spurs Blue RAL code is 5011 (see page 12 of document link above)
This is out of date... for merchandise we are using 282C now...

I was thinking about doing one of those online petitions regarding asking the major to change the stadium name and taking away the London stadium name and bringing it back to the Olympic stadium because of the actual harm a monstrosity that place is now and how damaging it is to have the great name of this great City London associated with it.

No, someone posted that back in Sept/Oct and clearly the author of that piece copied the phrase from the SCX website since it's fair to say it began last week rather than october.

It was spurs who said the installation would start in October and take 12 weeks -

'SCX Special Projects - the bespoke precision engineering arm of the family-run SCX Group based in Wincobank, Sheffield - is preparing to install the movable grass pitch over a 12-week period from October.'

What Tottenham have released, is a figure which is intentionally inflated, as this accords with their assertion that the project is tenuously viable. Why would they wish to do this? Well, in doing so, the inflated figure erodes and undermines pressure placed on the club by Haringey to include a significant element of affordable housing. This can all be traced back to a viability report which Haringey commissioned prior to agreeing the s106, wherein (KPMG?) discussed various figures. However, KPMG only discussed what the club could tell them, ie: the club wrote the report, or at the very least provided figures which supported their claim

In truth, the stadium will cost nowhere near these ridiculous sums which are being bandied around. The thing isn’t being build from gold, and there’s many fair comparisons to draw a reasonable baseline against. Yes ours has some added complexity, but it’s hardly the Taj Mahal. I don’t see how it could possibly cost more than £400m in materials and labour. If you want to bundle land acquisition, design, finance, programme costs and a load of other shit into it, then that’s another matter.

Nothing to go on but my take on this is the total cost for all 3 phases of the NDP and maybe they are now look g for future funding for Phase 3 which may even start next year shortly after completion of phase 2.

I think with all the momentum shenanigans the club may want to get as much started in their approved planning asap, before the loony left wing militants take over and change their minds...

A company called DS2 provided the Financial Viability Statement on phase 3 and the affordable housing etc for the club, and it is those figures and findings that KPMG used and validated Independently for Haringey Council. The Club didn’t write the report which you can read here:-
http://www.planningservices.haringey...ageName=773887

The KPMG can be found here:-
http://www.planningservices.haringey...ageName=776562

It Was the clubs figures provided by Rothchilds KPMG used for the stadium build.

I dunno if things have changed much but one pile should be enough to say the project is underway.

"You will also notice photographs of curved eaves which are now being installed at the top of the north-west corner. Check out images three and four in the gallery. These curved eaves are made of aluminium and will go all around the stadium. A point of interest - apart from a slight raise in the roof towards the centre circle, this is the highest point of the stadium"

On TL4, right at the bottom there has been in the past week work done on a rectangle area. Within the foundations there was pile side by side, on show was 3 by 5 all in close proximity, now they are chucking rebar onto it, those privy to the plans, what is it that's going here that needs such heavy foundations. cheers

Yes but we only have outline permission for the build, but does this include the final make-up of the numbers for affordable/social homes. If not I fear trouble ahead in getting the full permission.
I suspect the High Road West scheme wonít go ahead if momentum get their way though.
