Taking down the 60-year-old stand is part of the £45 million transformation of the stadium.
Once finished, it will become the largest conference and events venue in the South West.
Aden Flint, Bristol City's Outstanding Player of the Year, has extended his contract, and will be playing for the club until 2019.
The 25-year-old defender was awarded his 'Outstanding' title for his part in the club's double-winning 2014/15 season, in which they won their first title in 60 years.
Flint joined City from Swindon Town for an undisclosed fee in 2013. Manager Steve Cotterill said his game had improved hugely since then, praised his goal-scoring prowess and said he was thrilled to be keeping him around.
“I’m delighted to sign an extension ... I wouldn’t have dreamt of getting a contract extension at the start of last season, but I think it’s been a half-decent season personally for me and obviously a tremendous season for the club as a whole.
“I’m looking forward to testing myself in the Championship now.”
Hot on the heels of their double league and cup success, Bristol City are making some big changes.
Star striker Jay Emmanuel-Thomas will leave Ashton Gate this summer after his contract expires. Though considered by many to be the most talented member of the squad, in recent months he has struggled to cement his place in the first team.
Captain Wade Elliott is not having his contract renewed either, but has been offered the job coaching the under-21s.
Jay has never been a minute’s bother for me from the moment I walked in through the door. I love him to bits; he’s a fantastic lad.
“The one thing he needs is regular football. I’ve not been able to offer him that this year and if I couldn’t do that this year then there are no guarantees for next year either ... He’ll get sorted out with a new club for sure and if he gets a deal with one of the clubs I’ve been speaking to then I’d be delighted for him."
"I’ve offered Wadey a coaching job. I’d be delighted if he accepted our offer, to be in charge of the Under-21s. He has to think about that, so that’s a big decision for him ... He would be an excellent addition to my staff, as someone who knows me. He’s got all the credentials to be a good, young coach ... There is no time frame. He will have other offers to carry on playing. I don’t want to finish his career prematurely if he still wants to play."
Also not having his contract renewed is understudy goalkeeper David Richards.
