How do you solve a problem like RFK Stadium? NFL games have moved out to FedEx Field, MLS games may soon move to a new stadium at Buzzard Point and there aren't but so many concerts that demand that amount of real estate. As such, Events D.C. is looking for consultants to answer the question of what, exactly should happen to the aging arena. Councilman Tommy Wells had floated the idea of turning unused parking lot space into playing fields, but there's a possibility there might be a whole lot more room for park space as there's talk of demolishing the entire structure. What do you think, Curbed readers? Is it worth trying to redevelop the current structure (which also memorializes Robert F. Kennedy) or is it time for the stadium to meet the wrecking ball? We have a poll after the jump.
