Stadium Watch

It seems that some members of the D.C. Council have some concerns about the complicated land swap deal that would allow D.C. United to build a new stadium at Buzzard Point. Amongst the qualms voiced by council members: whether renovating RFK Stadium might be a less expensive option, whether giving the Reeves Center to Akridge really benefits the 14th Street corridor and whether the team's tax abatement program is a good idea. Council Chair Phil Mendelson also questions whether the Council can realistically vote on the stadium deal by January 1st. [WaPo]
