It will be nice to see some renderings of this, looks like it could be kind of boring, but we will have to see.

It has to be square shaped because of the lack of space. I like it. Looks like a smaller millenium stadium.

These drawings were leaked BTW. There wont be any renders for a few months probably.

Well, it sure looks like it. Which probably means that the other buildings on the lot would have to disappear.

Whatīll be left of the original WHL?
If itīs like zero, why stay in the same place, or is it that diffecult to get a piece of ground in London these days?

As I look at the drawings itīs nice design, but nothing original. If i see it good it will be the same height all around.
They will have to come up with something better if they want to replace the WHL stadium, which is legendary for itīs beauty (MOP)
Iīd rather see an extension of the allready excisting stadium.

Couple of points / queries about this:

- the top picture shows an underground car park. I thought that, under new UK anti terrorism measures, major public buildings and sporting venues would not be allowed underground car parks because of security risks. Am I right in saying that the Emirates has no underground car park for precisely that reason?

- Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, has said that Spurs are still considering three or four different options. If that's true, then this may not even be the preferred option.

- I can see that the lower image supposedly comes from the Haringey website but is the more revealing top image from the same source?

- I can't see how anyone can describe the plans as boring on the basis of these plans. They tell us very little about the look of the stadium (and even less about the materials), other than that the stands will surround the pitch.

- where does the figure of 60,000 come from? The last reports we heard suggested that Spurs were aiming for a capacity of 52,000. Has someone done calculations based on these new plans?

Have to say that I can't wait until Spurs do finally reveal their plans in the first half of next year. The club needs and deserves a world class stadium.

The Emirates does have an underground carpark, maybe terror rules would limit its use but currently traffic rules make more restrictions on when it can and cannot be used.

From the Section I count
26 rows lower
11 mid
2 suite
31 upper
Which would be 70 rows, so it looks like a good 60,000 in those plans if my count is close.
My comment about being potentially boring is mostly about the bowl itself, which is another three teir all the way around very uniform, personally something a little more inventive would be nice, although with a tight site like that I can understand a plan like that.
Final renders should be fun to see, even if it will be a little while.

I found these two very basic renders, though I have no idea whether they might just be amateur mock ups on the basis of the plans above. If these are genuine, though, you'd have to say that the new WHL won't have a great deal of architectural merit. And I don't like the look of the gap between the pitch and the stands. Hopefully, they will be able to widen / lengthen the pitch to get closer to the stands, since the current WHL pitch is on the small side:

Sorry, can't seem to post the actual pictures on here. Maybe someone else....?

Maybe the 3rd tier will be a "LAOla" one like Da luz or Emirates

JimB, those renders were done by a Spurs fan based on the above image. They are a mock-up, nothing more.
