In February 2017, groundbreaking began for Buzzard Point’s brand new, $300 million D.C. United Stadium, otherwise known as Audi Field. Since then, construction has now gone vertical, and new renderings have been revealed for the club level area, premium suites, and Circulation Tower that will be located on the east side of the stadium.
With hopes to open in 2018, the stadium will have a capacity of 20,000 with 31 luxury suites included. There will also be 500,000 square feet of mixed-use retail and residential space.
D.C. United plans on donating $50,000 for nearby residents concerned about air contaminants and installing a Capital Bikeshare station and parking for 447 bicycles.
In February 2017, Washington Business Journal further reported that D.C. United will also establish a soccer club at Amidon-Bowen Elementary School and offer free game tickets to Jefferson Academy Middle School students. Scholarships for 25 low-income children will also be offered to attend D.C. United summer camps.
