ASC Architects were commissioned by Auckland Cricket to consider the feasibility of a revitalised first class cricket venue on the outer oval at Eden Park. Though slightly small for test cricket, as an existing ground it met the minimum requirements of the ICC. The proposed purchase of some neighbouring properties to the north would allow permanent terrace seating on the embankment and the construction of a Media Centre overlooking the field. The embankment seating, existing grandstands and grassed areas would be adequate for domestic matches, but the addition of temporary seating around the field would provide for up to 5000 spectators expected for test matches.
