Land for DC United Stadium Could Face Eminent Domain

Developer Akridge and the Bowser administration remain locked in negotiations regarding the DC United land swap. The city has been in preliminary conversations with Akridge about the two acres, and they are still "very far apart" on a price point. With a September deadline to take over the site, Mayor Muriel Bowser said her office had been in talks with Attorney General Karl Racine about how to use "that process" to take the land if negotiations with Akridge aren't successful, reports Washington City Paper. It's assumed that Bowser is talking about using eminent domain. [WCP]
