Look great, hope it happens. Looks like the Hotel side of the stadium will directly face the water. Looks like everything is in place right now but a team.... therefore they should contact the MLS about getting a team, so that DC United is forced to make the move.

Maryland to study D.C. United academy in Howard County
Washington Business Journal - by Ryan Sharrow
Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2011, 10:11am EDT - Last Modified: Wednesday, June 15, 2011, 11:34am EDT


The Maryland Stadium AuthoritybizWatch on Tuesday approved a $75,000 economic study for a potential D.C. United youth development academy and $30 million tennis complex in Howard County.

The study will review the market and economic projections for the tennis facility at Troy Park in Elkridge. The complex is expected to include an outdoor stadium and indoor tennis courts.

The county is in discussions “for a potential D.C. United training complex” to be located on the site, according to a Maryland Stadium Authority memo.

The complex would be a training site for D.C. United Academy teams like the Major League Soccer franchise's Under 18 and Under 16 teams.

D.C. United spokesman Doug Hicks said the team looks forward to the Stadium Authority report and "is definitely interested in this opportunity."

Howard County Executive Ken Ulman requested the study. The Howard County Tennis Patrons — the group behind the Troy Park facility — will foot $40,000 for the study. The Maryland Stadium Authority will supply the remaining $35,000.
This has been causing a little buzz on the internet about the United's future in the district.
