Commanders Seek Chantilly Crushed Stone Site

June 16, 2021 – Negotiations between the Washington Commanders football team and economic leaders in Loudoun County, Va., are continuing despite the failure of a stadium financing package that would have given owner Dan Snyder hundreds of millions of dollars to help pay for the stadium, according to WUSA9 news. But if the Commanders want to build its new stadium in Loudoun, it’s going to cost owner Dan Snyder. The site of the potential stadium may be the most valuable undeveloped land in Virginia. “In my mind, it is one of the most intriguing commercial sites on the east coast,” said Buddy Rizer, executive director of the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, when discussing the 227-acre rock quarry owned by Chantilly Crushed Stone in Dulles which the Commanders are considering as one of three possible Northern Virginia stadium sites. “So, I can understand why the Commander’s and lots of other businesses would be interested in it.” A source tells WUSA9, that the team offered $400 million for the Chantilly Crushed Stone property, double what it agreed to pay for a similar-sized stadium site in Woodbridge, but the offer was turned down.
