Update on the proposed soccer stadium/Reeves Center swap, thanks to all who sent links, the Washington Post reports:

“Bowser, who chairs the council’s economic development committee, said she would rather see the city’s capital dollars go to improving the city’s middle schools.

Under Gray’s plan, the city would put up about half the cost of the $300 million project through tax incentives and land swaps, including one in which D.C. would trade the Reeves Center, on U Street, to developer Akridge for a piece of Buzzard Point.”
