Southwest Waterfront Features & Amenities
The $2.5 billion Wharf Development project along the Potomac has transformed the Southwest Waterfront into one of the most exciting neighborhoods in DC. The area features over two dozen dining options - Del Mar de Fabio Trabocchi, Mi Vida and Shake Shack to name a few. There is also a growing mix of stores and boutiques, all along the backdrop of the Potomac River. The oldest outdoor seafood market in the country, the Maine Avenue Fish Market, is currently undergoing a major restoration and preservation project. Soon you can expect more parking and an organized intersection to improve vehicular access to the long-standing neighborhood staple.
Southwest DC also features electrifying nightlife centered around unique bars as well as multiple live music and concert venues. The Anthem, brought to you by the team behind the 9:30 Club, is an acoustically advanced entertainment space. Besides hosting some big name music talent, The Anthem is a multipurpose space used for lectures and galas with a capacity to fit 2,500 - 6,000 people. Union Station, another music venue with good eats and a superior sound system is just a short walk down the river.
The Wharf was designed with lots of spaces for those with active lifestyles. The neighborhood offers yoga, rowing, and of course water activities - paddle boarding, kayaking, dragon boating, sailing and much more. Southwest DC is a short walk from Hains Point Park, which is one of the largest parks in Washington, DC where you can play multiple golf courses, or enjoy tennis courts, softball fields, and sweeping waterfront views. Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals baseball team, is across South Capitol Street from the Southwest Waterfront in the Navy Yard.
Phase II of The Wharf is planned to break ground in mid-2018 with an expected completion in 2022. The second phase of development will add 1.15 million square feet of mixed-use development. Once construction is complete, the entire development will include 24 acres of land and 50 acres of water.
Southwest Waterfront Property Values
The Southwest Waterfront is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington, DC. The Wharf development the is a major factor driving property values to increase steadily. The successful revitalization of nearby Navy Yard, as well as the addition of the new home of DC United Soccer at Buzzard Point, are also helping Southwest property values. Before Phase I of The Wharf, the last major transformation was in the 1960’s and the prominent architecture of this small quadrant of DC strongly reflects that time period. Both Hubert Humphrey and Thurgood Marshall once lived in the neighborhood.
Southwest borders the U.S. Capitol building, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Mall. There are seven major condo and apartment buildings that anchor Southwest DC: 525 Water, VIO, Carrolsburg, Harbour Square, Tiber Island, River Park, and Riverside, all of which are within blocks of the Waterfront Metro station. Rowhouses are also a real estate option in Southwest DC, although more limited than other neighborhoods in DC. Washington Marina offers the option for boat owners to live on their vessels and is one of the largest live-aboard communities in the U.S.
