Populous, the Kansas City-based architecture firm behind Nationals Park and Camden Yards, has released brand new renderings of the planned D.C. United Stadium in Buzzard Point. With a slated delivery for 2018, the 20,000-seat stadium is estimated to cost around $290 million, making it the most expensive Major League Soccer stadium ever constructed. $150 million of the price will be paid for by the District. In comparison to the renderings Populous designed for the D.C. United's marketing materials, these new renderings show a more boxy design as opposed to the original, rounder design. Rather than have the perimeter fully covered, it looks like two parallel ends won't be. Let us know in the comments what you think of these new renderings and any other differences you can spot.
Below, you will be able to see what renderings were used in the marketing materials from D.C. United:
