Details revealed for second phase of Populous-designed £200m Lord's cricket ground revamp

Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) has announced details of the second phase of its redevelopment plans for Lord's Cricket Ground in London, UK

Designed by global sports architects Populous, the works are set to replace the venue's historic Tavern and Allen stands with a single new structure built in place of the two existing stands – adding more than 5,500 seats – to raise the ground's overall capacity to nearly 30,000.

MCC, which owns the venue, hopes the new stand is to be completed by 2019, in time for the Cricket World Cup held in England that year.

As well as replacing the Tavern and Allen stands, the second stage, which is the biggest planned phase of the Masterplan for Lord’s, includes a new Thomas Lord Building, a new Tavern pub and internal reorganisation of the Pavilion to provide more room for cricket teams and staff.

Additional aspects of the project also include a new Harris Garden Building with a bar opening out on to the Garden, and additional dressing rooms both for tennis and squash players.

Derek Brewer, MCC Chief Executive & Secretary, said: "The South-Western Project will ensure facilities for players, match officials, supporters and MCC Members are of the highest possible standard by modernising areas of the Ground that have become tired.

"MCC is committed to maintaining Lord’s as the finest cricket ground in the world, and this project also provides a wonderful new front door to the Home of Cricket."

MCC is continuing to consult with Members and local residents about the project, with the aim of submitting a planning application to Westminster City Council in the summer of 2015.

• The news comes a month after MCC said it would reconsider plans by David Morley Architects for the redevelopment of the Nursery End at Lord’s. The £21m plans – which are part of the overall £200m revamp – will be voted on by members in September. If approved, the work will create a semi-translucent roof on a new 2,922-capacity stand, designed by Populous.
