New recreational fields, walking & biking trails and a large pavilion at the old RFK Stadium parking lot.
Twenty-seven acres of asphalt parking lots will be transformed into a 217,000 square foot sports complex. The $489 million dollar redevelopment project will include soccer, lacrosse and baseball fields. A pedestrian bike path will be linked to the existing Anacostia Riverwalk Trail. There will be picnic areas and several playgrounds.
- A 47,000 square foot market hall for food vendors
- 350,000 square foot indoor sports & entertainment facility
Construction on the RFK sports complex started this month and is expected to finish the first phase by Spring.
Homes for sale at this time show a completely remodeled rowhouses near RFK Stadium and the Stadium metro station from $1,400,000 to $749,990. A fixer-upper near the new RFK Stadium Campus range in price from $400,000 to $625,000.
I'm excited to see this massive asphalt parking lot transformed into a thing of beauty! The renderings show tree-lined walkways and lots of open green space.
If you live in the Washington D.C. area, be sure to drive by the area to see how the project is coming along.
