Curbed — By Michelle Goldchain

Washington, D.C.’s largest project under construction, the first phase of The Wharf, finally completed, and there’s still much more to expect for the future.

The first phase of the mile-long, $2.5 billion Southwest Waterfront project brought three hotels, a condo building, two apartment buildings, three music venues, a brand new water taxi service, and 10 acres of green space. A variety of new retailers and restaurants, such as Politics & Prose, also opened new locations.

With the second phase expected to begin groundbreaking by mid-2018, there’s still more to be prepared for. With 11 architects in tow, the second phase of the project will total 1.2 million square feet of mixed-use space, including retail, residential, marina, and park space.

Hollwich Kushner will also design a 13,400-square-foot building along the pedestrian waterfront promenade. Dubbed the Wharf Marina, the building will entail retail and amenity spaces with an accessible roof deck that will boast views of the Potomac River.
