The article reports that the District of Columbia hopes to secure financing by the end of 2006 for the redevelopment of 200 acres of federal property along the Anacostia River called Poplar Point. The city plans to build a stadium for the city's professional soccer club, but it would first need to secure a land transfer from the federal government, according to deputy mayor for planning and economic development Stanley Jackson. Legislation has languished in Congress that would transfer Poplar Point to the district's Anacostia Waterfront Corp., an area-specific redevelopment entity.
