While the Washington football team’s lease on FedEx Field doesn’t end until 2027, owner Dan Snyder is already on the hunt for a new space to call home. One potential spot in Loudoun County is about to go on the market, and, according to The Washington Post, it has potential.

The Washington Post reported that the site is "two forested, un-built parcels located along the Dulles Greenway on the doorstep of the planned Loudoun Gateway station west of Dulles Airport and 2 miles from the Redskins Ashburn headquarters."

Businessman Chris Antigone owns the parcels of land after purchasing them in 1984 for approximately $2 million. The Washington Post further reported that the site could now be worth as much as $377.2 million if developed under favorable zoning.

Originally, Antigone imagined developing office, residential, retail, and hotel space on the land, but a county zoning update could stop him from doing so. According to The Washington Post, he might have also lost legal control of the land to his partners.

There are no reports of the Washington football team reaching out to make negotiations about the Loudoun County parcels.
