Planned Unit Development Filed For New DC United Stadium: Figure 1

Earlier this week, DC United posted three new renderings of the soccer team’s new stadium. Late Wednesday, the entities behind the new stadium filed the planned unit development (PUD) for the sports venue with even more renderings.

The stadium, which will have a capacity of around 19,000, was designed by the firm Populous and will replace RFK Stadium, the team’s current home. Located on a nine-acre plot bounded by R Street and Potomac Avenue SE to the north, T Street SE to the south, and 2nd Street SE to the west (map), the planned completion date for the new venue is 2018.

More new renderings below.

    Yawn. Such a weak design. So boxy and bland it makes Columbus' Mapfre Stadium look cool. But no one can say "no" to an int'l architecture firm in this town, so they continue building these bland boxes everywhere.

    What do you expect? The city is subsidizing the development.

    I can't agree with the previous commenters. I'm very much liking the honest-but-striking expression of the structure, as seen in the first two images especially. I'm also liking the stylish box of the "entry tower," although perhaps I like the idea--a strong element aimed toward South Capitol Street, people coming from Metro, etc.--more than the actual articulation. In any case, what I'm not so sure about is whether the chic box and the utilitarian-fab stadium work together. So far they seem disjointed, two different languages smashed together.

    I think this looks cheap and a definite downgrade from the renderings that were offered before DC United had secured taxpayer support for the project. Seems a classic case of bait and switch.
