RFK Stadium.

The National Park Service has given the green light for DC's RFK Stadium to be demolished. 

"The National Park Service has evaluated the potential effects on the natural, cultural, and human environment related to the demolition of Robert F. Kennedy Memorial (RFK) Stadium and has determined that the stadium can be demolished," a new report stated. 

The next step in the process is for NPS to issue a permit that would allow DC to demolish the stadium. The DC government filed a raze and site stabilization application for the 62-year old stadium back in 2022. 

For decades, RFK served as home to the city's NFL franchise, the DC United soccer team and two baseball teams, but it has been vacant for the last several years. In February, the House of Representatives passed legislatIon that would allow DC to redevelop the stadium site, potentially leading to the construction of a new stadium for the Washington Commanders.
