In The Works: The Top 3 Developments Coming To Southwest Waterfront
Hoffman-Madison Waterfront's development on the shores of the Washington Channel is leading the surge of change for the revamped DC neighborhood.
A true mixed-use project, The Wharf spans the 24 acres of land and 50 acres of water from the Municipal Fish Market to Fort McNair.
The development is bringing two marquee office properties to the forefront in the coming years with the 11-story, 220k SF 800 Maine and the 10-story, 250k SF 1000 Maine.
No office development is complete without housing nearby. In terms of residential, 525 Water offers 108 luxury condos alongside a 3.5-acre waterfront park. Move-ins begin this summer.
For those looking to move to the area next year, Vio will also be in on the upper-tier housing game with 112 units spread across 12 stories. Move-ins as are scheduled to begin next fall.
In all, more than a dozen architects combined to design the 3.2M SF project, which also will have three hotel flags in two buildings and 250k SF of retail in Phase 1, delivering next year.
Waterfront Station II
This project is the second piece of development the DC government has given to private developers right outside the Waterfront Metro. Waterfront Station II will bring 400 units of housing to 1000 4th St SW, 30% of which will be affordable.
Developers PN Hoffman, Paramount Development, ER Bacon Development, CityPartners and AHC won DC's bid to redevelop the property in March with their proposal to include a 10k SF black box theater and more than 22k SF of other retail.
The project's sister site across the street, the original Waterfront Station, is just three pieces away from completely delivering. Under construction is the 365-unit 1001 4th St SW from Forest City Washington. Still in the pipeline: 375 and 425 M Street, two office buildings with a combined 625k SF of commercial space.
The View At Waterfront
Mill Creek Residential has brought luxury leasing to 1100 6th St SW.
The project: two 85-foot-tall residential towers with a combined 260 new units, built next to two existing towers designed by legendary architect I.M. Pei in the '60s. Groundbreaking is expected soon.
The project is unique because Mill Creek actually requested to downzone the property to keep the buildings a little smaller, and it's being built with wood and steel above a two-story concrete podium, a standard developers were only approved to use in DC last year.
