Spanish soccer team Real Madrid has released a video showing the latest renovation works at its home stadium, where it is completely transforming the look of the venue by adding a futuristic façade, retractable roof, and state-of-the-art facilities.
The video shows the demolition works ongoing outside the stadium for the construction of a new subterranean parking lot, as well as the stripped-back exterior of the old stadium, and more works on the bowl’s north and south stand sections.
One feature of the future stadium that is now visible is the metal structure belonging to the new towers on the Paseo de la Castellana. Equipped with ramps, escalators and lifts, the new towers will replace the current B and C towers and will serve to make the flow of spectators more fluid. They will also serve an architectural purpose, given that they will provide structural support for the new roof.
The total cost of the renovation is said to be approximately €575m.
