This is technically outside my Near Southeast purview (although I may have to expand my boundaries!), but today's Post story about DC United negotiating for a 25,000-seat stadium and practice facility
at Poplar Point
is a great piece of news, and another achievement for the Anacostia Waterfront Iniative
. This would be on the south side of the river, almost straight across from Florida Rock
. Just think of the vista someday, with stadiums and parks and mixed-use developments on both sides of the river, connected by a rebuilt "promenade"-style Frederick Douglass Bridge.
