The biggest indoor arena in Britain, and most expensive in Europe, is set to be built in Manchester.
The £350m project, which will have a capacity of 23,500, is set to host over 120 music and sports events per year - creating more than 3,500 jobs in the process.
The new arena will also be home to the largest standing space for an indoor venue in the UK - with room for over 10,000 people.
American development and investment company Oak View Group (OVG) is collaborating with City Football Group (CFG) to bring the arena to the Eastlands area - where it will sit right alongside the Etihad Stadium.
The new venue will surpass Manchester Arena as the biggest in Britain - with the long-standing Victoria Station site currently accommodating 21,000 people.
It will also be one of the most sustainable - incorporating an energy-efficient design to support Manchester’s Zero Carbon 2038 strategy.
Current predictions suggest the project will take three years to complete.
A planning is being put to the town hall. If approved, the arena could be open by 2023.
