I am proud of being a Hearts fan but having the biggest and best football stand in Edinburgh is not in the top 20 reasons why. In fact it barely features.

Excellent. You obviously don't care much about the new stand, so you won't be constantly whining about everything connected to it.

Its going to be beautiful. At first I was hoping for a bigger capacity stand, to maximise revenue and accessibility for our sleeper support, but also I hoped the main stand would not just be a mirror wheatfield and was "grander" than the others to signify its status as the main stand.

For once the computer generations do us a favour here because you can clearly see from that photo or imagine that the scale of the seating area is much bigger than its older opposite.

Yep.. I think the slight change in angle for the bottom section will differentiate it a little also

Thanks Mikey, but no luck. I'm browsing on desktop site, but can see only "More reply options", and after that there is no "file" etc.

 

I've found another image hosting option so will give that a go instead.

Agreed. Once the technical areas, press seats, tunnel, maybe some differentiation in the Directors box and Premium seating, it will look like the main stand. And it will make the whole inside of the ground look superb.

Of course it is of interest to all Hearts fans, and the interest is heightened by the fact that there hasn't been too much to get interested in on the pitch this year. Let me put it another way. I won't be bragging about having the biggest and best football stand in Edinburgh, or the longest curtain wall in Scottish football.

And add a couple big screens.

I interested in seeing the stand finished, but also looking forward to see it mature season after season.

Why exactly?

See Debut4's reply as an example of how not to be a GradeA arsehole. The level of preciousness about a football stand is astounding, even if we did pay for half of it.

And he's off again....

In other news are there further caps to be applied to the stand i thought they were to be a grey on the main bit and maroon on the sides ?

Yes, Thomaso has already confirmed this, the bit you see are just the plates the caps clip onto...can't mind correct technical term, not plates but you should get what I mean!

As well as being a great thing for Hearts, it'll hopefully help join up Gorgie with some of the other regeneration that's going on in the area, such as by the canal side and Fountain Park. It's about time something was done to help bring Gorgie back up a bit again. So much money spent elsewhere in the city.

I walked past it today and a digger was busy spreading gravel/sub base possibly in preparation for laying the paving blocks.  

 

I know it's been said a few times before, but it really is a massive structure when you see it for real.  I'm not sure anyone will be able to take a photo of it similar to the above without a very decent wide angle lens.

Is there work going on in parallel in other areas of the stadium? Isn't this a Tynecastle redevelopment project rather than just the Main Stand replacement? I was in the Wheatfield for the League Cup games and it looks like there have been small improvements but more work is needed IMO.

There are other phases planned but the club hasn't committed to a timescale as far as I'm aware.

I think they just want to get the new stand open, then finished.

Once the final bill is paid they can put a plan together for redevelopment and regeneration of other parts of the stadium.

I think they have a list of jobs that need done and a rough idea of the order they want to do them, but any late snags which push the current project further over budget would have an impact. (Not saying there will be more problems, just that it's possible and the club will have planned for it).

The priority to to complete the main stand which will be a big money generator for the Club - as money is available there will be improvements to the other stands I'm sure.
