Buzzard-Point.gifBuzzard Point, a peninsula in Southwest DC, between the Anacostia River and the Washington Channel, is being transformed from a primarily industrial area into a new mixed-use neighborhood anchored by the future DC United Soccer Stadium. Eric Shaw, director of the DC Office of Planning, conveys the future vision for the area as well as the significant waterfront development currently underway. Its proximity to the river brings vulnerability to sea level rise and flooding while offering opportunities to design a new green and sustainable waterfront neighborhood.
