There has been some momentum of late toward building the long-anticipated venue that will replace RFK Stadium as the D.C. United’s home. Populous has been handling the design, while Turner Construction Company was awarded the construction contract back in July.
As a result of Populous having been on the project for some time, some preliminary renderings have already been released. However, the D.C. United have already rolled out new images that show the stadium’s exterior and how it could tie into surrounding development. This project has been touted as a potential economic impact generator for the area, with some noting that the stadium’s arrival will come at a time in which significant development is taking place around nearby Nationals Park. The price tag for the D.C. United’s stadium is expected to be about $300 million, and the cost will be split evenly between the District and the team.
Aside from the D.C. United’s Twitter, renderings have also been released on the team’s Instagram and Facebook accounts.
