Tottenham Hotspur have taken another tangible step forward in the process of bringing a new stadium to North London. Chairman Daniel Levy announced this morning the selection of Mace, a consultancy and construction company, to take the lead in the development of Spurs' new grounds.
"This is another step towards the delivery of one of the best stadiums in the world. We are delighted to have Mace on board. They bring a wealth of experience and I know they share our commitment to ensuring that the development will be first class in every aspect. We now await Haringey Council's Planning Committee decision on 8 December 2015."
Mace's resume is impressive. They are responsible for a wide range of premier infrastructure that spans across the globe. Their notable projects include the construction of the Shard, Heathrow's Terminal 5, the Emirates Mall in Dubai, and London's 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games stadium. Further, they have restored the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and buildings at the University of Oxford. Take a look at this interactive "Mace World" map to explore their numerous accomplishments in greater detail.
The other tidbit of information from this release is the reminder that Tuesday, December 8th is a pretty important day for the club. Spurs' new stadium planning application will be considered by the Haringey Council's Special Planning Committee on this date. While the decision to allow Tottenham to follow through with their stadium plans seems a formality at this point, nothing is set in stone. December 8th will hopefully be the day where the NDP project gets an official green light to progress forward; it will also be a day to rejoice if you support Spurs.
