Description: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Updated Northumberland Project is actually a completely new development revealed in 2015, differing significantly from the vision Tottenham Hotspur had promoted since 2007. What remains nearly unchanged is only the layout of planned stadium (though blueprint rises) and location of a mixed-use development south of the venue.
Shape, size and uses of the stadium have been upgraded. New bowl is larger than that of 2007. It will be covered with metallic cladding like that planned initially, though in an updated form of perforated webbing mosaic. A viewing deck will be created atop the stadium.
Inside it has also grown: from 56,250 seats to 61,000. New layout still includes the planned single-tiered kop stand for home fans. It would be located in the south and underneath that section a brand new feature would be hidden: a storage for retractable field as the stadium is to host both natural turf and synthetic grass for American football games.
South of the stadium the long-awaited mixed use programme is planned, but not with 285 flats. Instead, up to 579 apartments are to be made available, some of them so called affordable housing. Also, a 180-bed hotel is planned, which altogether means buildings will be significantly taller than in the previous planning application.
London: Tottenham agree on stadium debt refinancing
Converting debt into bonds and extending repayment period leaves Tottenham Hotspur with more wiggle room to run their football operations.
Safe standing: La Liga and Premier League have their first railings
Athletic Club and Tottenham made strides between March and April as the first teams in their respective leagues to install safe standing sections. While they differ in scale immensely, both of them are notable!
Fan's perspective: Supporters kept saying just one word, Wow!
How does it feel coming back home after a spell at the national stadium. Well many of us were against the exorbitant prices of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. I spent just over £1,000 for a season ticket for just 19 home Premiership matches. However, we were delayed time and time again, first it was meant to be September, then December and finally we moved.
London: Rugby enters Spurs stadium
Just before opening, the new stadium of Tottenham received a 5-year tenancy by Saracens. The rugby team will hold one exhibition game per season at the 62,000-seater.
London: This time Spurs just have to open
After a prolonged series of failed inaugural dates, several scandals and a ton of gossip, the new Tottenham Hotspur will finally open on March 24, March 30 and April... 3, 6 or 7.
London: Last chance to open by year end?
Tottenham is hoping to open their delayed stadium in mid-December. If this third attempt fails, there will be only one more game left to play in 2018.
London: Turf rolled out at Tottenham
A third of Tottenham's hybrid field is already in place, at least the natural part of it. With 3 days 23 lorries from the Netherlands should deliver the future turf, which will welcome players once the Spurs' new home opens.
London: Spurs' opening slips further away
September was already out of the picture. Now also October is out and even late-November game against FC Inter has been moved to Wembley. Will the new Tottenham stadium open this year at all?
London: Just how much trouble is Tottenham in?
While details on the stadium's progress remain sketchy, Spurs are subject to growing speculation. Unofficial information suggests their new stadium will not be ready until 2019.

It's already the second missed deadline for Europe's most expensive private project. September opening isn't happening, October also seems uncertain. When will Tottenham's new stadium open its doors?
London: Excessive working hours as deadline looms
Tottenham's new stadium is rushing towards the finish line. It's very exciting to watch, but perhaps excessively tiring to work there. 80 hours per week (and extra time on top of that!) seems too much by any standard.
London: 15,000 faulty seats being removed from Tottenham stadium
They've only just been installed and already have to be removed. As it turns out, 15,000 seats were manufactured with a flaw and need to be replaced. Tottenham assure the operation will not delay the stadium's delivery.
London: Exception for Tottenham, speedy construction
In order to aid Spurs' stadium delivery, Premier League has agreed to allow one more game at Wembley, an unlikely exception to the 'one season, one stadium' rule.
London: Tottenham's deadline, sliding field and microbrewery
Though speculation is still rampant with just over two months left before planned delivery, Tottenham ensures August is still the opening date. Meanwhile, tests of the sliding field are going well and the first stadium microbrewery is on its way.
London: Tottenham's fight against time
With every passing week and no information of opening date, speculation about possible delays will only get louder. Tottenham are reportedly facing opening games of next season at Wembley. Construction pace is impressive, but there's just so little time left...
London: Tottenham reveals the most expensive season tickets ever
Not only unprecedented for Spurs, these are literally the most expensive season tickets in the world. One season for $2,765? Possible only at Tottenham's new stadium.
London: Spurs prepared for big lift
Possibly the most exciting operation of Tottenham's stadium build is finally upon us. All rings of the roof are now complete, cables attached and now we're waiting for strand jacks to begin lifting the cable system into place.
England: How much are PL naming rights worth?
To secure a naming rights deal in Premier League you only need £300,000 per year. But to buy the most expensive name it's 87 times that amount! Here's the latest valuation by Duff & Phelps.
London: First tiles decorate Tottenham stadium's facade
While glazing continues, not only glass is arriving at the new Tottenham stadium, First navy blue tiles were laid. While they made headlines, there's of course far more going on in London. After all, opening is expected in roughly 7 months!
