Everton FC reveals final Dan Meis designs

Dan Meis has revised his plans for Everton Football Club’s new ‘historic yet futuristic’ riverside stadium following a public consultation


Everton Football Club has revealed the final designs for its planned new stadium on Liverpool’s Bramley-Moore Dock.

Initial designs by US architect Dan Meis for the stadium were released last summer, after which a public consultation process was carried out.

The response from fans was overwhelmingly positive, but a number of changes have been made nonetheless.

Most notably, the multi-storey car park will now be integrated into the stadium rather than be a separate structure and additional environmental measures, including wind baffles, have been incorporated into the designs.

The 52,000-capacity stadium is inspired by the historic maritime and warehouse buildings nearby and its design makes use of brick, steel and glass to combine historic and modern elements.

There will be four distinctive stands, including a steep, 13,000-seat stand, and the design will help to retain crowd noise within the stadium.

“Bramley Moore is a site steeped in Liverpool history.  It gives us the opportunity to draw on that context and connect the stadium to the history of Everton in the tradition of many of the historic grounds in English football,” said Dan Meis.

“We didn’t want a building that looked like a ‘spaceship’ dropped on the site, but rather a ground that grew out of the historic fabric of the Liverpool docks”.  

“We were striving for a building that was both familiar and yet awe-inspiring, historic yet futuristic.”

The stadium will help to regenerate the northern docklands, contribute an estimated £1bn ($1.3bn, €1.2bn) to the city region’s economy, create up to 15,000 jobs and attract 1.4 million visitors to the city each year.

Everton’s current stadium, Goodison Park, will be redeveloped to provide a number of community assets for the local area, including high-quality, affordable housing, a multi-purpose health centre, community-led retail and leisure spaces and a youth enterprise zone.

Colin Chong, stadium development director at Everton, said: “This project has been designed from the ground up with the site’s heritage in mind – getting this right has always been our priority.

“We have invested an enormous amount of resource and effort in creating a design that not only respects and looks at home in a dockland setting but will also restore and preserve the historic features of Bramley-Moore Dock and, importantly, open a currently inaccessible site to the public.”

Everton will now await a decision as Liverpool City Council review the planning application.
