no, the stadium will be run by a private operator, will be there responsibility to either get the rugby team to move to the stadium or get some local soccer teams to play, either way the private opeator will want to make a profit

5 weeks ahead of schedule

One of the most critical decisions before us in this regard is a request for Council to approve provisional authorisation for further construction work on the Green Point stadium.

Construction of the stadium has so far proceeded under a provisional building plan approval pending consideration of the final plans at the end of June.

But the contractor for the stadium is approximately 5 weeks ahead of schedule.

The excavation work on the stadium site is about 90% complete and casting of the concrete bases has commenced, with 10% already complete.

In order to ensure that we remain within our authorised mandate, and in order to avoid wasting the time we have gained, we therefore need to extend authorisation to the substructure of the stadium.

The City is well advanced with its other preparations for 2010, especially with regard to transport.

Last week the meeting between the City, Province and the National Director General of Transport revealed that we are leading the way in South Africa with the transport strategy we have formulated together with Province.

There has also been a very encouraging response for the post-2010 stadium operator with 19 interested parties having collected tender documents from the City.

Several of the interested parties requested an extension of the original deadline to enable them to submit comprehensive business plans.

Additional building needed for Green Point stadium
June 05, 2007, 11:00

An application for additional building at the new multi-purpose Green Point stadium is to be made to the City of Cape Town.

This is because the construction work is five weeks ahead of schedule.

Pieter Cronje, the 2010 spokesperson, says the current construction work is still within the authorisation given earlier this year.

"We are coming to the end of phase one. We now have to go to phase two and therefore we need provisional authorisation from the building plans department to continue with the building," Cronje says.

Robert Hermes, GMP on "the cloud" Cape Town stadium:

At the moment, a thick greyish-white ribbon of cloud is hovering once again over Cape Town’s famous landmark, the monumental Table Mountain. When a new structure has been completed at the end of 2009 echoing this natural phenomenon – light, elongated, with flowing contours – then a group of German architects will have achieved their aim. Gerkan, Marg and Partners (gmp) have in fact dubbed their stadium design “The Cloud” which is currently under construction in the north-west of Cape Town. At the moment, the site is still a huge empty expanse, but this is where football fans from around the globe will be cheering the international teams during the 2010 World Cup.

Endeavours to promote bilateral cooperation also explain why the German architectural office is working with numerous South African partners on the stadium projects. In Cape Town, the two partners are Louis Karol Architects and Point Architects and Urban Designers. But the “Rainbow Nation’s” policies are also promoting cooperation projects with domestic specialists. The reason behind this is to overcome the decades of Apartheid that systematically excluded the non-white population from economic participation. Consequently, the government now requires all companies involved in enterprise in South Africa – including companies from abroad – to abide by the regulations of Black Economic Empowerment (BEE). One of the rules in this framework specifies that a certain number of non-white women and men must be employed in every company. But the German architects’ discovered themselves facing changes which turned out to be of an entirely different nature: “It took us some time to adapt to Cape Town’s rhythm,” recalls one of the gmp colleagues in the waterfront office.



The stadium in Cape Town represents a particular challenge. On the one hand, it has to accommodate 70,000 sports fans, but it also has to intrude as little as possible on the typical landscape surrounding the city. This is why the gmp architects came up with the idea of “The Cloud”. To avoid “any competition with the characteristic horizontal contours of Table Mountain,” explains project manager Robert Hormes, the upper edge of the stadium undulates giving it a different, but permanently soft and flowing appearance from every possible perspective. As a result of the height specifications, the architects designed a glass roof that dips towards the centre of the arena. The stadium’s outer membrane is composed of light-coloured fibreglass to give the external impression of transparency and brightness, as well as providing unimpeded views from within.
