Wharf DC

Wharf Overview

The DC Wharf bounds the Buzzard Point neighborhood on the northwest corner. It is impossible to disassociate change in our area with the greater development across the Southwest Washington quadrant. The Wharf, being built in two distinct phases, has been more than a decade in the making and will be fully realized in 2022.


Below are some facts about the first and second phases as well as some historical photos of the southwest waterfront and Wharf construction. There are several places to learn more about the Wharf. I recommend starting in these places:


Phase 2 Facts

  • Expected completion in 2022, the 3-year length of construction is partially due to the land sitting on top of the Metro green line as it curves from L'Enfant Plaza to Waterfront station
  • 131 hotel rooms, 255 apartments, 96 condominiums
  • 95,000 sq ft of retail space
  • 547,000 sq ft of office space
  • 223 new boat slips
  • 1.5 acre park
  • 5 new buildings, 3 new water buildings
