Madison Square Garden Company is to build its first entertainment venue outside its US home. The venue will be located in East London and McLaren is being tipped to land the deal. Rival, Sir Robert McAlpine, who had been considered favourite after completing the O2 Arena scheme for AEG, appears to have lost out to McLaren who is set to bag the construction contract which is believed to have an £800m development value. The O2 architect, Populous, has designed the scheme.
The new venue will have a capacity of between 17,500 and 21,500 and will be wrapped in triangular LED panels which will display a range of moving and static images including promotional material as well as digital art.
MSG promises technologies such as the largest resolution LED screen in the world, a haptic flooring system which will allow the audience to ‘feel’ the bass below them, wireless connectivity, and adaptive acoustics to deliver crystal clear audio to fans.
The site was last used as a coach park during the 2012 Olympic Games and runs across nearly 3ha in Stratford. For all your Building needs call Smiley building services, your quality Builders in Croydon.
For some time it has been possible to extend your property without obtaining planning permission under the Government’s ‘Permitted Development’ criteria. Although at first glance it appears straightforward it is always worth discussing your ideas with your Builder in Bromley who will have a great deal of experience with the Local Planning Authority and will be completely aware of what can and can’t be achieved under permitted development rights.
Permitted Development rights can be subject to local planning restrictions, if you live in a green belt for example this can affect what changes you can make to the appearance of your property. Working with a local builder that has a team able to help with all aspects of the project from initial design and any planning application, through to construction is invaluable.
