Kastles Stadium Leaves the Wharf

In a sign that construction may begin at The Wharf sometime before next July, Kastles Stadium at The Wharf has been dismantled. The stadium has been a fixture at 9th and Water streets for the past three seasons and all that's left now are the lights and ticket window. Before the stadium opened in 2011, Hogates/H2O nighclub was located at that corner.  By 2016, the site will become an office building and an Intercontinental Hotel with ground level retail. The office building will front Maine Avenue and the hotel will face the wharf and Washington Channel.

Sucks that it can't somehow be incorporated into the Warf Design as a permanent structure.

Finally, signs of impending progress! After soooo many years of hearing about the redevelopment that's coming to the waterfront, I am more than ready to see some real, substantial progress. Start building!
