An Urban Stadium for Washington D.C.
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."
