Boris Johnson hails ‘momentous’ West Ham Olympic Stadium deal

The Hammers were named preferred bidders in December but negotiations with the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) have been long and tortuous.

However, the LLDC announced this morning that a deal has now been signed off that sees the Premier League club become anchor tenants under a 99-year lease.

Plans for the revamped stadium were unveiled this morning, with the reported £150 million facelift due to be completed in time for the 2016-17 season.

The Olympic Stadium will be transformed into a 54,000-seater venue, with West Ham now set to embark on a detailed, independent supporter consultation process.

  1. Good, Can we use the stadium as a camp for Financial Services people after the revolution? Perhaps the new housing bubble being constructed by the sub-prime Chancellor might be improved by actually constructing affordable housing for people on ordinary incomes? rather than forcing existing too-high prices up even further to benefit his chums House prices are too high don’t make them even higher – its similar with football ticket prices
