The Wharf (Southwest Waterfront)

The Wharf

A remarkable, mile-long waterfront neighborhood is taking shape in Washington, D.C. The Wharf is a mixed-use waterfront opportunity, coming to life in the heart of the nation’s capital. Located within walking distance of major commerce, The Wharf is centrally situated on the Potomac River, along the historic Washington Channel, a short distance from beloved national monuments, The White House, The Capitol and Smithsonian Museums. The Wharf holds an unrivaled location, and an extraordinary vision for a new waterfront neighborhood, presenting what is truly a once-in-a-generation opportunity. With 27 acres of land at 50 acres of waterfront and an exciting, innovative vision, The Wharf is poised to become D.C.’s next great meeting place.
