Everton are planning to build a new stadium planned for Bramley Moore Dock on the banks of the River Mersey, and New York-based architect Dan Meis is behind its design.
He has been consulting with Toffees majority owner Farhad Moshiri over the project and talks are on-going with potential investors for the £500 million project.
Plans for a detailed build timetable are also being finalised with contractors Laing O’Rourke, but the coronavirus pandemic has since affected everything.
Nevertheless, execution plans for the 52,000-seater stadium will resume once it’s safe for work to resume fully, and Everton were hoping to hear a decision on their planning permission for the new stadium later this summer.
A lot of Everton fans follow
Meis on social media as he sometimes post about the new stadium, but his most recent tweet has gotten them worried:
If I learned anything from this year it is that when someone says “it isn’t personal, it is just business” I probably shouldn’t have been in business with them to begin with….

It is unknown if it is connected with the Goodison Park outfit or just another one of the architect’s clients, and here is how some Toffees fans reacted to it:
You’re going to have to confirm whether this is about Everton or not, Dan… ?

Your interaction with Everton fans since the start of the BMD project has been excellent but to post a cryptic tweet and not respond since posting is poor to be honest.

Meis designed AS Roma’s Stadio della Roma, the Staples Center, Paul Brown Stadium, Safeco Field and Miller Park. The Bramley-Moore Dock stadium will definitely turn out to be a masterpiece, and Everton fans just can’t wait.
