I’m made up.... love it and can’t wait to have a look around it.

I was there for the first game in the Riverside in 71/72 so would dearly love to witness the opening of the latest reincarnation of The Riverside.

Wasn't that the Benfica game?

It was Jim, including the immaculate Eusebio
Such a fond memory as The only time I attended with my Dad and brother.

So jealous of my older brother who lived in London and seemed to know everyone at Fulham FC.

Im sure the location and the retail and restaurant offers will leave QPR and Brentford seething.
It may be so good it will push the house values in the vicinity even higher!

Wish Dad had kept the family home in Fernhurst Road.

Anyone else seen palace and their new stand redevelopment? Now theirs is very impressive. A class well above our design, but we'll still have the best overall stadium. 

For me it's a shame, because the design should take into account the future.  For a start, there's a massive open back. Going to keep people cool at the top of the stand with a breeze.  Any noise made will have more room to escape again.  Albeit in the non noise riverside stand lol.

Our one stand we can really go for it and improve, has not really done it for me. Prefer it as it is almost. I only want the best for our club. The block of flat's takes the piss. Could be the start of something really bad.

the top of the stand which you can see through is going to glass apparently. I asked that specific question to the design company. So no gap.,but more will be seen in full plans.

Just a couple of months ago we had, planning permission,  a developer and plans to start next year, now all of a sudden we have NO permission, and NO developer !
Have I got that right ?
If I have then there is next to NO chance of it starting next year 😠

Lots of info in the planning but I know some are worried about the flats and this is about them.

Short-Stay Serviced Apartments

4.25 The spaces between the roof and the cores at either end of the stand provide the opportunity to

contribute to the active frontage and passive surveillance overlooking the neighbouring parks

and Riverside walkway by the inclusion of nine apartments. However, unlike the previous

scheme that proposed four residential units for rent on the “open market”, the current proposal

is for nine short-stay, serviced apartments to be used by the club/people affiliated to the club

and others, as appropriate. Users will include the owner, sponsors and new players joining the

club in need of accommodation for a few months before they find more permanent

accommodation elsewhere.

4.26 On this basis, the proposed units will operate as serviced apartments (Use Class C1). The

apartments will provide:

• One no. two-bed apartment and three no. three-bed serviced apartments at second floor

level;

• Two no. two-bed and two no. three-bed serviced apartments at third floor level; and

• One no. one-bed serviced apartment at fourth floor level.

4.27 The serviced apartments will be designed to a high quality. Private amenity space will be

provided for each unit in the form of a balcony, as well as larger roof terraces on the upper floors

of each block.

Planning ahead as well for Putney and Hammersmith:

As Fulham FC considers its potential future
expansion plans, the club must take into account
the existing features which will influence the nature
of the development. The fact that their Ground has
its own very special and unique character with four
distinct stands around the pitch, and with heritage
assets in the form of the Johnny Haynes Stand
and the Craven Cottage itself, naturally leads to
a solution that retains the four stand concept but
allows each stand to be developed, or refurbished
as necessary. The redevelopment of the Riverside
Stand maintains the four stand approach. If the
Hammersmith and Putney Stands were ever
amended or replaced at some stage in the future
they would also be expected to follow the four
stand approach. The design of the Riverside Stand
proposal has taken this into account, in so far as
there is nothing in this proposal that precludes
redevelopment of the Hammersmith and Putney
Stands in the future, and the rectilinear form of
the proposed stand with the vertical facades of the
blocks at either end of the seating tiers provide a
perfect ‘book-end’ in the corners of the stadium,
up to which new Hammersmith and Putney Stands
could be built, whilst retaining the setting of the
heritage listed assets and the overall special
character of the Ground as a whole.

The flats will provide the beiggest development value per sq m out out of anything else there. A developer would be mad not to include residebtial floorplace in a site like this and itbwill effectively cross-subsidise the rest of the (low development value) development. A football stand by itself would generate insufficient profit for a developer to bother with it, so this is the right approach and will hopefully get it done.

Very impressed

I’m sure we’ll all be impressed with the next set of designs when the current ones also get shelved for some reason.

As someone else has said, the development is going backwards.

Yes. I remember it particularly because Feethams was such a fabulous little ground.

I also remember that their then chairman, the man responsible for the fiasco, includes on his cv various prison terms for theft of cigarettes, burglary, safe-cracking, handling explosives, tax evasion and breach of parole.
So obviously a 'fit and proper person' - but not much in common with our own situation.

I understand the scepticism but am optimistic that this is Khan's own design and his preferred approach.  After all the stalling let's hope it goes ahead this time.

As someone said above.... ‘A couple of months ago we had planning permission, a developer and plans to start next year, now all of a sudden we have NO permission, and NO developer !

All true unfortunately. That’s what I’m talking about
