"M Street Southeast: Waterfront" is actually a misnomer, as the site only extends north to M Street with additional structures. The stadium arena structure itself is located in the quadrant framed north and south respectively by the south side of N and the north side of P Streets, and east and west by the west side of 1st Street SE and the eastern side of South Capitol Street. A more accurate name is "South Capitol Stadium". It was one of three finalists
