the least favored site,
according to a 2003 Washington Post poll
In 2003, The Washington Post conducted a survey on the three following choices:
The Possible Sites
| RFK Stadium|
At a cost of $342 million, and built on land already controlled by the city, the RFK Stadium site would be the most inexpensive of the five options. However, the surrounding area would lack the amenities expected at other sites, such as restaurants and shops.
|New York Avenue |
The New York Avenue site would be built near a new Metro stop currently under construction at a cost of between $411 million and $436 million.
|M Street SE/ Anacostia Waterfront |
Located adjacent to South Capitol Street, the Anacostia waterfront location has a projected price tag of between $411 million and $436 million.
