Edinburgh flaunts Meadowbank Stadium refresh
September 14 2017redevelopment of Meadowbank Stadium, an ambitious rebuild which will see the sports venue put out of action from December until Easter 2020.
Work is scheduled to begin on the Holmes Miller build by the start of next year following submission of a full planning application, which is expected to be filed ‘soon’.
Councillor Ian Campbell, vice convener of culture and communities, said: “This is the end of an era for Meadowbank and the start of a major redevelopment to support physical activity, health and wellbeing in Edinburgh for generations to come. The facility will support both the local community and clubs and it is important we get the design right. That is why the facility mix has been revisited, and now incorporates improved indoor athletics facilities in line with feedback from individual users and sports clubs within the budget we have available.”
A range of new facilities are to be offered by the revitalized arena including an outdoor athletics track with spectator stand, games halls, fitness studios, an indoor athletics track, twin 3G football pitches, a café and meeting rooms.
The development will be partially financed through the sale of surplus land for housing, including affordable properties.
