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  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.

Note: All facilities would need easy access to Metro and regional highways, ideally have views of the U.S. Capitol or Washington Monument, and seat about 41,000 people.

Note: This is an unscientific survey of washingtonpost.com readers.
