We have some eye candy in the form of new D.C. United stadium renderings, as the team prepares for a June 26 hearing to help determine the future of the project.
MLS’s DC United has proposed a new stadium in the Buzzard’s Point area, with the District providing the land (at a cost of $150 million) and the team financing construction costs (estimated at $300 million) while also benefiting from a few tax breaks. The new D.C. United stadium renderings from the team and architect Populous was sent first to season-ticket holders to inform them of the look of the facility as well as to drum up support.
“This is our field of dreams, and it will be a catalyst for economic development at Buzzard Point that will generate $204 million in tax revenue for the city during the stadium lease term and create over 1,550 jobs,” wrote DC United COO Tom Hunt in the letter to fans and ticket holders.
