The next major sports stadium in the region is going up in Washington, D.C. Nationals Park, the soon-to-be home of Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals, is being built one mile south of the U.S. Capitol. How big is the stadium? Consider these bits of trivia, from the November/December issue of Constructor Magazine:

  • It will cost $631 million.
  • It has a footprint of 1 million square feet.
  • 300,000 cubic yards of dirt were removed during excavation.
  • It is expected to be the first LEED-certified sports complex.

    A low-flow plumbing system should save 3.6 million gallons of water a year.
