With Construction for The Wharf in Full Force, The Time to Buy in DC's Southwest Waterfront is Now

Posted by Andre M Perez on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 at 11:45pm.

The Wharf, Washington DC Last year around this time, plans for a massive redevelopment project dubbed The Wharf were first released that aim to transform Washington DC’s Southwest Waterfront neighborhood into a boardwalk strip full of apartment residences, office space, restaurants, nightlife, entertainment venues, and just about anything else you can think of from a development standpoint.

When finished, four blocks of new buildings, 150 boat slips, three piers, and 20 different restaurants, bars, and cafés will totally revitalize this stretch of waterfront property, ensuring that the Southwest Waterfront will soon be a coveted location for homebuyers to consider for many years to come.

In the first phase alone, The Wharf includes apartments, condos, offices, three hotels, a movie theatre, a jazz club, a piano bar, a country-western bar, an Irish pub, and a 6,000-capacity concert hall.

The vision behind DC’s aggressive new waterfront redevelopment is to be able to provide both residents and visitors to the nation’s capital with a lively and energetic waterfront destination full of entertainment, shopping, dining, and nightlife—something that DC has been lacking since basically forever.

Although The Wharf isn’t being welcomed by everyone, it’s hard to argue the impact it will have on the Southwest Waterfront’s economy, not to mention the city as a whole. It’s said to provide 5,000 permanent jobs and 427 subsidized housing units, and only time will tell how property values will be affected once the project is complete.

The first phase of The Wharf is expected to be done sometime in 2017, so if you want to buy early and settle in before the mad rush to own here, the time to take advantage of current Southwest Waterfront real estate prices might just be right now.
