While D.C. United deals with ANC opposition and Zoning Commission concerns over the design of its proposed stadium on Buzzard Point, a second parcel across 1st Street from the project is now being marketed by MAC Realty Advisors. Parcel B, as it’s being called for now, is a 1.6-acre piece of land bordered on the west by 1st Street, on the east by Half Street, on the north by the proposed public park, and on the south by S Street. Potential uses for the site run the gamut from a hotel, to office, to residential – either option potentially containing ground floor retail. D.C. United is expected to reach an agreement with a developer partner by March 2017. This parcel will have to go through its own design review with the Zoning Commission before construction can begin, but the site will likely remain vacant for only a short time after the stadium opens in 2018.
