In March 2019, the local planning authority, the Planning Policy and Decisions Team, received a planning application for a large-scale live music and entertainment venue from The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG). The proposal is for a spherical shaped building next to Stratford Station that would provide an auditorium (capacity for up to 21,500 people), a music venue, nightclub, members lounge, restaurants, bars, and new bridges to create pedestrian connections across the site amongst other things. The building would be composed of a ‘skin’ of LED’s that would be programmable and could display images on the surface of the building including adverts. An application to display adverts on the building has been submitted alongside the main proposal.
November 2019 Revised Submission
The applicant has sent an updated package of information which includes new drawings, technical assessments and proposals for Stratford Station. A copy of the applicant’s covering letter summarising the main changes and new documents provided is included below.
