Real Madrid received some positive news on Thursday with it now being possible for the club to proceed with the demolition of two towers and a corner of the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
The Governing Board of Madrid approved plans on Thursday that Los Blancos had previously submitted to start the rejuvenation project of the famous stadium.
At the west side of the stadium, the two circular towers will be demolished to facilitate the reconstruction of the area which will include a shopping center.
This area totals around 82,807 square meters and the spokesperson of the Madrid Government, Rita Maestre, informed journalists on Thursday that plans had been approved.
Real Madrid intend to remodel the entire stadium, however this is merely the first step to that end with all costs for the project falling at the feet of the club rather than the government.
Once the work is completed, a green area of 12,003 square meters will be located on Paseo de la Castellana and the rest of the public roads will be at the perimeter of the stadium. Overall, these carry a total surface of 32,269 square meters.
