Milan and Inter have taken another step towards the new stadium. The two clubs have presented the revised plan according to the conditions set by the city council, which could soon result in the go-ahead.
According to today’s edition of Gazzetta Dello Sport (via MilanNews.it), Milan and Inter will decide which project to move forward with in the summer, as it currently stands between Populous (right on pic) and Manica-Cmr (left on pic).
Among the conditions set by the council, the preservation of the Giuseppe Meazza was the most important, as the stadium now will become a sports citadel and only partly torn down. This will cost the clubs €75m which is more than the initial demolition plan.
The council positively welcomed the plan but one issue remains, and that is the area surrounding the stadium. Milan and Inter are asking for 90K square meters for commercial use after previously receiving the ‘ok’ for this.
The parties will have to negotiate and reach an understanding on the matter. As soon as the executive project is underway, it will take 12 months for the final approval and then another 36 months for the construction of the stadium.
In other words, the goal of both clubs is to inaugurate the new stadium in 2024. Meanwhile, for the commercial side of things, it will then take another 36-48 months to reach full completion.
