The team behind The Wharf celebrated its grand opening Thursday, and the following day it filed hundreds of pages of plans for the development's second phase.

The Phase 2 renderings, first published by Urban Turf, show the five new buildings planned, plus new public spaces and waterfront piers.

The 1.2M SF Phase 2 will be built along a half-mile stretch along the Southwest Waterfront, directly to the east of Phase 1. It will include the Parcel 6 and 7 office buildings, the Parcel 8 hotel and residential component, the Parcel 9 residential building and the Parcel 10 office building. 

The team unveiled previous renderings in May, but the newest submissions reflect comments made by the Zoning Commission. The Hoffman-Madison Waterfront development team will go in front of the Zoning Commission again on Nov. 2 for a public hearing.

In between the Parcel 6 and 7 office buildings, which are being designed by SHoP Architects, will be The Oculus, a large public space surrounded by retail. SHoP designed the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, where it also included a public space with an Oculus. Another public space, The Grove, will sit in front of the Parcel 8 building.

In addition to the five buildings on land, the second phase will also bring three new buildings out on the water that will offer marina services and retail. 

Perkins Eastman will continue as the master planner for Phase 2, with 10 additional architects designing individual components of the project. 

PN Hoffman CEO Monty Hoffman will speak at Bisnow's Future of Southwest D.C. and The Wharf event on Nov. 30.
