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. The stadium opened in July for the 2018 Major League Soccer season. The state-of-the-art facility accommodates 20,000 fans and features 31 luxury suites, a 200-capacity bike valet lot, and close to 500,000 square feet of space for offices, retail, and other amenities. 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 and context of Buzzard Point.
The new stadium provides a unique atmosphere for fans to watch soccer, and includes 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.
