Launching the Biggest Development in DC’s History

Phase 1 of The Wharf opened in October 2017, with grand opening celebrations and activities planned until April 2018—so visitors can look forward to discovering something new almost every day.  
But The Wharf doesn’t stop there. Now 14 signature buildings—each designed by a different architect— linked by 10 acres of public space and parks creates an ever-changing and exciting experience along the water.

The community is a feat of planning and design beyond compare, comprising 24 acres of land and 50 acres of water. The Hoffman-Madison Waterfront team is restoring a 200-year-old fish market and created 1,400 waterfront residences, relocating a 127-year-old yacht club and set up three unique hotels, designed and built a 6,000-person-capacity concert hall and conference center, and constructed four public piers. They’re all linked by a waterside promenade with more than 75 restaurants and shops extending along a mile of waterfront.
It is this combination of offerings—the river, restaurants, marina, residences, water taxis, businesses, fish market, shops, music, and piers—that make The Wharf such a unique destination.
