Inside Two Residential Buildings Planned at The Wharf
Vio at The Wharf
Welcome to UrbanTurf’s Property Week, a week-long series devoted to some of the most intriguing residential properties in the DC area and beyond. From a train station-turned-brothel-turned home to a clever way of making 140 square feet livable, this week is all about cool residences. Enjoy.
The Wharf is moving full steam ahead at the Southwest Waterfront, and a number of UrbanTurf readers want to get a sense of what the inside of the residential projects will look like. So for Property Week, we decided to take a look at the latest interior renderings for two of those developments.

Vio is a 12-story, 112-unit condo project being developed on Parcel 4B at The Wharf.

The project, designed by Handel Architects and WDG Architects, will be a mix of studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units. However, it’s the luxury elements that make the building stand out. Floor-to-ceiling windows, water views, a gym with a yoga studio and a rooftop saltwater infinity pool are a few of the perks. The coolest feature, however, is that certain condos will have private elevators that include access to the restaurants, bars, cafes and retail on the Wharf promenade.

The Micro-Units at Parcel 2
Parcel 2 is the second building joining the lineup at The Wharf. It’s a 500-unit development, but what stands out are the 180 micro-units. 170 of these units will be between 330-360 square feet and a third will be affordable. While most of the tiny units are spread throughout the building, they’re often laid out in pairs and designed in modules that allows them to be easily converted into one-bedrooms if micro-units prove to be a passing trend.

Although small, many of the renderings for the units show a touch of luxury that has become almost a staple for the $2 billion revitalization of the Waterfront. The units have 9-foot ceilings, tall windows, and some units will even have laundry as pictured in the rendering. Smart space-saving options such as a sliding barn door for the bathroom, built-in shelving and window placement at the end of the unit gives renters more options for furniture organization.

While most of the units are priced at market rate, or in the range of $1,500-$2,000 per month, the developers said they’re hoping to also rent for less than $5 a square foot.
