As D.C. Council prepares to vote tomorrow (Tuesday) on the D.C. United stadium deal, locals will discuss the broader future of Buzzard Point.

The Southwest Neighborhood Assembly will host a panel tomorrow night on development on the southern end of Southwest D.C.

“This is one of the only areas in D.C. with a significant industrial building stock, and the community has a lot to consider,” said David Garber, the former Navy Yard ANC commissioner who will moderate the event.

The panel will be made up of ANC 6D commissioner Rhonda Hamilton, founder of Dupont Underground Julian Hunt, director of the Anacostia Watershed Society Jim Foster and historian Hayden Wetzel. The talk will take place in the Police Station at 101 M Street SW at 6:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

Garber said he will begin the evening by making a 10-minute presentation on the concept of adaptive reuse. Buildings discussed will include the U-Haul location at 1501 South Capitol St. SW, the art deco Pepco substation and other industrial structures.
