Located within Washington DC’s smallest quadrant, the SW Waterfront has a tranquil mix of low and mid-rise apartments, new retail shops, restaurants and condominiums. Boating activities launch from a number of marinas on the east bank of the Washington Channel. The first phase of The Wharf, the region’s largest redevelopment project, will open in 2017 and will transform the Waterfront into an urban center with waterfront advantage. It is ideal for those who like being away from the City but are in fact within walking distance of government office buildings, the National Mall, Haines Point Golf Course, the Capitol and Smithsonian museums. The world acclaimed Arena Stage is located here as well as the renowned floating fish market where fresh fish, shell fish and exotic delectables can be purchased 365 days a year. Washington National Baseball Park is one metro stop away.
Ideally situated among major commuting corridors (I-395, South Capitol Street), the Green Metro line and bus routes, the neighborhood is enhanced by bike lanes and walkways. The SW Waterfront has become a truly charming place to call home.
