NOTE: Even information about a new stadium may be out of date in this ever-changing world. Brentford Community Stadium, 166 Lionel Road North, Brentford, London, TW8 0RU The stadium is located between Kew Bridge Station and the A4 and M4, close to Chiswick roundabout, less than a mile away from the old ground at Griffin Park. It has a capacity of 17,250 and is the home of both Brentford FC and London Irish rugby club. It has state of the art features, including two LED screens which currently have the highest resolution in a UK stadium. It also benefits from Desso Grassmaster fibre-stitched system, which is the same pitch technology as Wembley Stadium. Away fans are situated in the East Stand, with an allocation of around 2,000. For detailed information on the stadium and how to get there, car parking, public transport and local attractions, see: https://www.brentfordfc.com/fans-and-community/visiting-the-stadium/ Where to Eat and Drink: In addition to the four pubs on the corners surrounding the old ground, the New Inn, Royal Oak, Griffin and Princess Royal, the nearest pubs are: The Express Tavern, 56 Kew Bridge Road, TW8 0EW - a CAMRA award-winning pub with kitchen serving “unfussy food”, and a spectacular outdoor space on the northern bank of Kew Bridge. The One Over the Ait, 8 Kew Bridge Road, TW8 0FJ - a Fuller’s pub with kitchen near Kew Bridge, nestled by the river along the Thames Path away from all the traffic. It has a wide selection of cask and keg beers. The Pilot, 56 Wellesley Road, Chiswick, W4 4BZ - a small Fuller’s pub and restaurant serving “an extremely high standard of food and ale”.
This is the Boundary Project. I have developed it over the past few weeks, originally working on the stadium and then expanding to build the surrounding areas - the following images go through the various features of The Boundary Project. Firstly, this is the main stand - as you can see it is sponsored by J.W. Lees, a local company - which is the running theme through-out this project. The main stand is a simple one tiered stand which then has two rows of executive boxes and also contains the TV gantry at the top. We then move on to inside the main stand, and we can see the view from the tunnel and the Latics badge which is present as you leave the tunnel and enter the pitch. In the previous picture you could see the ZEN OFFICE stand, which again is a one tiered stand which runs the full length of the pitch, at the back of the stand is offices and the adjoining corners contain further offices as well as the club shop/ticket office and 1989's Bar and Grill. Following on from this we can see the away end, which is split into two sections, again in the corner, 1989's can be seen. Behind the home end of the stadium is the Oldham Athletic Training Centre, here there is an artificial indoor pitch and also 8 5-a-side pitches which can be seen in the next picture. The 5-a-side pitches are seen here, and would be used 7 days a week to generate income Finally, the adjoining retail park can be seen above, contained within this there is a cinema and bowling complex as well as a T.G.I. Friday's - Subway - Burger King - Pizza Hut - Frankie and Bennys - this would heavily benefit the town as a whole. This is an image of the full stadium from behind the away end - the training centre visible in the distance. Finally, this is another view of the stadium from behind the main stand, as you can see the Latics badge is prominent on the back of the stand. This is all fictional and i would really appreciate any comments which you may have - for those wanting to have a further look at the Stadium, you can download the model from [http://sketchup.goog...9e64402f7ff687f] and you can also view all my other stadium models, including Boundary Park here [http://sketchup.goog...02076&scoring=m] Thanks a lot for your time reading my post, hope you enjoyed - Latics_Fanatic
