It’s awards season, even in the architecture world. This week developer Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW) announced the 11 architects chosen for the second phase of the District of Columbia’s waterfront development, The Wharf.


The Wharf is a $2 billion project that runs along nearly one mile of the Washington Channel’s Southwest neighborhood. At completion, The Wharf will bring more than three million square feet of mixed-use space to the D.C. area.


“We have selected a diverse group of locally, nationally, and internationally renowned designers, knowing they will bring their talent and expertise to The Wharf, building a waterfront neighborhood that is an integral part of the city,” said Shawn Seaman, AIA, principal and senior vice president of development of PN Hoffman.


Firms (all New York City–based, unless otherwise noted) joining the team are as follows:


Hollwich Kushner (HWKN) will be designing the Wharf Marina, and S9 Architecture will be assisting with the overall urban environment, specifically with the Wharf Marina Operations and Cantina Marina Pier.
