MMD is Associate Architect for the new home of the DC United in Southwest, Washington, D.C., supporting Populous, a globally-recognized architecture firm based in Kansas City. Populous was named Architect of Record by the team the summer of 2015. The stadium will open in July for the 2018 Major League Soccer season.
The 19,000 -seat stadium will total 437,938 square feet, including the field, concessions, team offices, retail store, media center and other functions. It features a “seating bowl” with canopies surrounding an uncovered field. The “contemporary industrial” style of the venue brings a modern aesthetic to the DC United brand, while also paying homage to the industrial past of Buzzard Point.
(This project was initiated under Marshall Moya, but will be completed by Michael Marshall Design.)
The new stadium will create a unique atmosphere for fans to watch soccer, and will also include an “interactive plaza” linking to ancillary development that will serve as community-gathering space year-round. The project creates dynamic parks and open spaces that are intended to be community assets.
