    Wait, is that the same stadium rendering that had the puke/piss/trash moat?

      My impression was that was what Snyder came up with for the stadium regardless of where it was (though with a preference for RFK). But I didn’t pay that much attention so I may be wrong.

    Wait, how are they “unveiling” this when it’s all over the web. The “Starchitect” was on 60 minutes 2 weeks ago. Granted, his work is amazing, but I can’t stand that they’re calling it Redskins Stadium.

    Why do I have a feeling this is gonna be a disaster?

    I was under the impression that RFK grounds is owned by the NPS and DC Events just manages as long as there is a team residing in it, hence DC United. However once there is not a team based the grounds revert back to NPS. Also the current lease limits the use of the grounds and what Events DC can do. I know there was a study done by DC after permission was given by NPS. Did NPS give up it’s right to redevelop this into parks as intended? I would like to see this area redeveloped into either parks or mixed use neighborhood, my concern is that Events DC is wasting money on plans and hearings for something they have no ability to dictate since it is NPS land. This comes after numerous questions from the council to DC united about renovating RFK, obviously assuming that DC owned the property and did not just lease it.
