Writing for Greater Greater Washington, Cavan Wilk looks at how the stadium could blend itself into the surrounding neighborhoods of both prospective sites.
"Integration with the street grid: Because the District has no interest in offering subsidies in the form of rebuilding streets, the new soccer stadium would have to be designed around existing infrastructure. The celebrated human-scale L'Enfant Plan would be largely undisturbed.
Proximate transit access:The Florida Market site is a five minute walk from the NY Avenue Metro station on the Red Line. The Buzzard Point site is a 10-15 minute walk from the Waterfront and Navy Yard stations on the Green Line."
