So depending on playoffs Ivor Wynne's last game will be Oct 27, 2012. Construction starts immediately after, again depending if there's a playoff.
Are they just going to fix up Ivor Wynne or will it be a new stadium?

A completely new stadium with the stands oriented 90 degrees from its current position.

I hope it's as good as that West Harbour/TigerTown design. That was fabulous. Anything less would be a massive disappointment.

I hate that Tiger Town idea. It's not really much of an idea anyway: a stadium surrounded by parking.

In terms of cost, here's a little perspective. This is PPL Park near Philadelphia. It's ~20,000 seats and cost $120M (2008).





Our budget is about $150M, if I'm not mistaken, so there's no reason why we shouldn't get something as pretty as this.

What's the latest word on the project so far? Is construction set to begin after the 2012 football season?

Design build/team has yet to be chosen. The next few months should have a team in place.

Demolition of Ivor Wynne is slated to start as soon as this season ends with construction of the new stadium on the same site.

We still have no announcement yet on where they will play during construction.

This just opened in Houston on the eastern edge of downtown

The Compass Stadium
seats: 22,000
cost: $105 mil
construction time: 15 months








Most of the upper sections will have roof cover. Aside from Major League Soccer and international soccer matches, BBVA Compass Stadium will also host Texas Southern University football, concerts, boxing matches, and much more. With its downtown location, the new stadium will be a part of a true Stadium District, which already features Minute Maid Park and Toyota Center, as well as the George R. Brown Convention Center, Discovery Green, and The House of Blues.

We should at least get a stadium like this - minimum, we have $150 mil to spend - plus I await to hear plans for our "stadium district".

For the money we're going to spend, I expect nothing less than what Houston has. Hamiltonians should have very high expectations for this stadium.

Here's yet another example: Home Depot Center in LA





Completed in 2003. Seats 27,000. $150.000.000.

This is Hamilton... the stadium will cost more and won't be as good as those other ones - I'm pretty sure of that. It'll be consistent with the stupidity of building it at the current IWS site.

I'm still hoping the plans for the stadium falls through - at least the plans they're moving forward with.

I can't wait until it shocks all the Stuart Street supporters, $150 mil will build an awesome stadium. Even the biggest haters and non-football fans will have to force themselves to go to at least one game to experience it.

Stuart Street would've been held up with the OMB for a decade. Look at the Setting Sail Plan as an example.
