Tour of D.C. United's Proposed Buzzard Point Stadium: Stadium Site

Part 2 of our photo tour of Buzzard Point.

This gallery shows the area where the proposed stadium will sit. Starting at the intersection of Potomac Ave SW and First St SW, we show the area along First Ave SW all the way down to V St SW. This part of the property includes the Pepco power plant property that is key to the overall stadium deal. At the far south end of Buzzard Point, along V St SW, are the headquarters of the United States Coast Guard and James Creek Marina. We then show the area coming north on 2nd St SW up to R St SW. To the west of this area is Ft. McNair, an Army post that is home of the Department of Defense's National Defense University. The rectangle bounded by First St SW, V St SW, 2nd St SW, and R St SW is the heart of where the new stadium will be located. And, since the area to the south (the Coast Guard Headquarters and the Anacostia River) and the west (Ft. McNair) is immovable, maximizing space to the east (where the Pepco property sits) and to the north will be crucial to making the stadium a reality.
