    New Parramatta Stadium Revealed


    mack

    The winning design for the new Western Sydney Wanderers stadium at Parramatta was revealed today by the NSW Government.

    As work begins on the demolition of the new stadium, the 2019 stadium design has been unveiled. With numerous bidders for the work, the Government selected a joint bid between builders Lend Lease, and designer Populous.

    Populous are well known in Australia & Asia, having designed the Sydney Olympic Stadium that the Western Sydney Wanderers are currently playing in, as well as stadiums on the Gold Coast, in Melbourne & New Zealand.

    Unlike many other stadiums built in Australia, this is a purpose built rectangular stadium, and will have the steepest viewing angles in the country. There will be a single tier home end, while the main grandstand will be built with premium corporate hospital suites.

    The new stadium if completed as designed looks like it will be the premier medium sized stadium in the country, and leaving all but a handful of stadiums in the dust. It is expected to be finished in 2019.

    Very exciting, photos look awesome, safe standing aside everything as we would want it, no complaints for me.

     

    Get it built already!

    Lol, the glass between the corporate suit and the change rooms isn't going to work. At least 1 smart arse player is going to moon the corporate suit and that will be the end of it

     

    To be honest it is more likely to be the other way around lol

    Great to see WSW colours in the promotional video!

     

    It all looks pretty good. Hopefully there will be standing areas for RBB included.

    Where has the actual plan (as opposed to a sexy animated mock up) been released/posted i.e. what website?

    Quoted from the other thread:

     

    Oh wow looks good.

    The stand with the corporate facilities - looks like theres not much room left for us plebs on the (western?) stand.

    I like the animated flyover of the parra river in the video. I noticed sydney was exclusively red and black.

    My thoughts exactly

    :drats:

    Although the shadow does suggest otherwise, I'd agree with what was said in the other thread that it's unlikely the they'd put the prawns in the sun.

     

    Impressive video. Let's see what gets delivered.

     

    And those not happy about the roof, remember that it never just rains at Wanderland. Monsoon conditions will ensure you get suitably soaked no matter where you are :xnod:

    Sounds a bit like a mini-shopping centre judging from the video. Pretty fancy, and I think it's mentioned in the other thread that ~10% of the seating is prawn sandwich. Not too happy about that, but in terms of the steep seating it sounds great. Huge bonus if RBB gets standing as well!

    I wonder if they made a similar one predominately using blue and yellow for the knuckle heads in the nearby leagues club?

    Players and fans of the other clubs will get out of bed with a hard-on on Pirtek 2.0 match days.

     

    After the last semi Broich said to Bridgey that it is an honour for the WSW team to play in front of such fans. Pirtek 2.0 will take concept of spectator sport in Australia to a new level.

    Wow! How good does it look! I honestly can't wait until it's finished and these things always run over time. It makes putting up with SOP a lot more bearable when we know this will be the outcome.

    The western stand in the sun? Y'all know the sun sets in the west, right?

     

    Those that had Pirtek Stadium tickets on the western side that cannot be accommodated will be moved to the eastern tier, similar positions or offered elsewhere inside the stadium. No doubt the club will arrange a different ticket structure anyway, to suit the new stadium layout.

    Vimeo video pulled.

     

    Yeh. I wonder why?

     

     

    I don't think it was a public release video. I'm guessing a Lend Lease/Populous one that was used for their bid.

    For anybody who may who may be interested the Assessment report for the new stadium at Parramatta has been released.

     

    http://majorprojects.planning.nsw.gov.au/index.pl?action=view_job&job_id=7534

     

    Just a side note, the proposed new Parramatta Leagues Club judging by the pictures in the assessment report is going to be a massive building and development if it goes ahead as planned.

    I was thinking more about which side the corp facilities are on, and if you think the sun is raising or setting in the pic. If the sun is setting in this pic, then the corp facilities are on the eastern side and all good for us west grandstand peeps. If the sun is raising, then the corp facilities are in the western grandstand and us west grandstand peeps, as Carns said, seem to be out of luck.

     

    At first look, I thought it was setting but reading what others said (ie the corp boxes aren't likely to be facing the sun and so would be on the western side), I'm probably wrong.

     

    At least that what I was trying to say.

    The video showed a VIP parking area bahind the western stand so you'd have to assume the corporate facilities would be on the west side.

     

    Either they're showing the angle of the sun in the morning or the architects have an alarmingly poor understanding of how sunlight works.
