We’ve been watching The Wharf project here at Capital Park Realty for some time now. Check out this blog, and this one, from back when the project first broke ground more than two years ago. The $2 billion, 27-acre construction project down on the Southwest Waterfront currently looks like a big hole in the ground along the Washington Channel, but Phase I is still on pace to be completed in the fall of 2017. If you head down there, you will see more than a dozen cranes at work in the area. The first residential building, which is technically not part of The Wharf but located at the south end of it, is 525 Water, which is scheduled to open in 2016. VIO will be the first official Wharf residential building and will open in 2017. There seem to be updates…

VIO will be the second residential building to be completed along the Southwest Waterfront and the first one that is actually a part of the construction project “The Wharf.” It is set to open in the fall of 2017 and development is already underway. VIO means “I Journey” in Latin, and developers PN Hoffman, Handel Architects, and WG Architects plan to use that phrase in making you feel like you are living in a resort-like destination. The building will consist of 112 units over 12 floors. There will be a saltwater infinity pool on the roof with great views of the Washington Channel, Potomac River, and downtown DC. Most units will come with a garaged parking space and balconies with views of the waterfront. Select condominiums will also have private…

Spring in the Nation’s Capital brings two certainties: cherry blossoms and more listings showing up on the real estate market. It has been quite the seller’s market over the winter, with a high demand and low supply of properties in the DC area. The sales price to original asking price is close to 100% right now. While we don’t foresee it turning into a buyer’s market anytime soon, there will be more listings coming available throughout the spring and summer.

Most well priced listings are seeing multiple offers. More often than not, the winning offer is above the seller’s asking price with very few, if any, contingencies. It’s commonplace in DC for purchasers to accept the property “as-is,” and many buyers are choosing to waive any financing,…

Southwest Waterfront development is taking shape as part of DC’s Anacostia Waterfront Initiative.  This new mixed-use development, called the Wharf, will span 27 acres of land and 24 acres of water from the northern landmark of the Maine Avenue Fish Market to the southern point of Fort McNair.  This swath of land has remained largely untouched since the infamous Urban Renewal 50 years ago. 

The Wharf aims to change the waterfront to include cafes, restaurants, homes, office space, hotels, retail, and public spaces.  Those public spaces will include waterfront parks, promenades, piers, and docks.

The first phase of development along the Southwest Waterfront includes 3 apartment buildings, a cultural venue, a condo building, a co-generation power…
