Architecture studio Populous has won planning approval for the MSG Sphere music and esports arena, which will be London‘s largest indoor venue.

Designed for the organisation that runs New York’s Madison Square Garden (MSG), the 90-metre-high spherical music venue would be built near the Olympic Park in east London.

It is set to be built after the London Legacy Development Corporation‘s planning committee voted six to four in favour of the proposal.

It made the decision despite 852 objections submitted in opposition to the project. In total, 355 responses were received supporting the proposal.

“The applications have been subject to robust review and a detailed officer report,” said an LLDC spokesperson.

“Following careful consideration, the independent Planning Decisions Committee has approved granting full planning permission for the MSG Sphere, subject to conditions,” the spokesperson added.

Following the agreement of Section 106 planning obligations, the application will be referred to the London mayor’s office for final approval.[…]
