Aberdeen Arena detractors see red
August 13 2010
Club chiefs have ordered the £38m venue to replace their existing rundown Pittodrie home and are keen to make a mark on the area by specifying a red flow for added night time presence.
Designed by the Miller Partnership the scheme boasts fully enclosed seating under a bowled roof, together with a glazed corner block containing offices, a shop and museum in front of a public square and extensive car parking.
Not all fans feel quite so rosy about the flit however, pointing out a lost heritage from their existing home and querying whether the new stadium will bring too much surplus capacity.
Indeed local residents are already seeing red before a brick has been laid, aghast at the loss of greenbelt land on a difficult to reach out of town site.
Should Aberdeen City Council approve the plans then the stadium could be ready for the 2013/2014 season.
