Edinburgh Council brush up Meadowbank Stadium concept designs
February 12 2015
Drawn up by Reiach & Hall architects the plan would entail demolition of the existing complex to allow sporting provision on the site to be enhanced, together with ancillary services such as a healthcare centre, café and shops.
Practice director Jim Grimley told the Edinburgh Evening News: “Our preliminary design places the new building between the existing outdoor sports arena and London Road which achieves two aims – it maintains the facilities at Meadowbank, whilst enabling the creation of a welcoming building, with a strong civic presence on to London Road.”
Councillors are still seeking to raise the necessary funds for the project to proceed but have committed to carry out a ground survey and prepare a development brief.
