New Queens Park
New Queens Park – design description
The stadium is to be built just over 2km North of current Loftus Road, near a major railway hub at Old Oak, where various railway connections (including subway) already exist. The 40,000-capacity stadium is planned as a driving force for complete regeneration of the district.
Overall the stadium is to be surrounded by completely new office and commercial outlets that are to give some 50,000 jobs and 24,000 new homes. The planned redevelopment should outgrow the famous Canary Wharf business centre.
To make such an impact a long-term partnership has to be made between the Hammersmith and Fulham council and Stadium Capital Development, who have already done a similar stadium relocation for Arsenal FC.
London: QPR target new location for 30,000-stadium
After exactly 100 years at Loftus Road QPR now indicate a new site they would like to move to. A 30,000-seater just 1 km north could be built within a few years.
London: QPR charity trust needs a larger stadium
Loftus Road isn’t just too small for long-term growth (or any growth) of QPR, it’s also below the needs of QPR in the Community Trust, the club’s official charity.
London: Stadium for QPR? “Not going to happen”
While the London-based club hopes to build a new stadium at Old Oak, the plot owner very clearly states, this isn’t happening. End of the New Queens Park scheme? Very likely.
London: QPR launch consultation on stadium, but where would they build?
Queens Park Rangers officially began public consultation, a process that will go on for months ahead of detailed stadium plans. Yet the club seems to be unlikely to get hold of land they want to build on.
London: Stadium for QPR? “Will take significantly longer”
When QPR presented initial renderings of the new 40,000 stadium last year, completion date was anticipated for 2018. Now that sounds impossible as owner of the land suggests no agreement has been reached.
