The Timsah Arena will boast state-of-the-art facilities and will totally transform the central suburb of Osmangazi, in the club's home city of Bursa.

Site clearance started in June and it is planned construction will be completed by the end of 2012 when Bursaspor will move from their current home ground, the 25,000-seat Bursa Atatürk Stadium.

The distinctive design, which is designed to resemble a crocodile, was produced by Bursa-based practice Sozuneri Architects and pays tribute to Bursaspor, nicknamed the Green Crocodiles.

The structure is somewhat unusual, with a three tiered west stand, a two tiered east stand, and two vertigo-inducing sloping end zone stands.

This is apparently to fit in with the topography of a tight area for redevelopment.

Planning videos released by developers show sweeping panoramic shots of the stadium.
