Washington D.C. officials are getting creative when it comes to finding a way for D.C. United to have a home of their own.

According to reports out of the Capital, city officials are considering a land swap with real estate firm Akridge to give D.C. United a chance to build a new stadium in Buzzard Point, an area along the Potomac and Anacostia rivers.

The city is reportedly considering trading a couple of “high-profile D.C.-owned buildings” in place of nine acres of land on Buzzard Point. D.C. United has previously said they would privately finance a new stadium on their own, but wanted the city to pay for the land and surrounding infrastructure costs.

What do you make of this news? Do you see a resolution on the D.C. United Stadium situation coming soon?
