Waterfront living. Walkability. Restaurants and nightlife. Spectacular sunsets. Neighborhood conveniences. Community events. There are few neighborhoods in the DC area that can tout all of these luxuries, but National Harbor—located on the Potomac River where Maryland, Virginia and DC meet—does so with enthusiasm.
Over the last decade and a half, National Harbor has flourished into a dynamic residential community, convenient to both Alexandria and all of DC. Though many of the new residential communities at National Harbor are now sold out, three properties—The Esplanade apartments, The Flats at National Harbor condominiums, and Potomac Overlook townhomes—all have availability.
The Esplanade features luxury one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with sleek kitchens and spacious floorplans. The Flats at National Harbor (which first opened its doors in January), offers upscale condos by Pulte Homes. These two-bedroom and den residences offer private balconies and up to 1,800 square feet of living space.
Finally, Potomac Overlook is a fully gated townhome community offering the largest homes in the Waterfront District, each with four levels, four-bedroom suites, a sky terrace and a two-car garage.
Beyond the stylish interiors of its properties, the beauty of living at National Harbor is immediate access to a mixed-use community that has everything from locally owned boutique shops and outlets (at Tanger Outlets), to MGM National Harbor and dozens of new restaurants—including Silver Diner and Fogo De Chao.
As a waterfront community, National Harbor also boasts dozens of local amenities that won’t be found elsewhere. Waterfront trails provide miles of hikes. The marina offers boat rentals, including kayaks, paddleboards, pedal boats, and even easy-to-steer vessels from GoBoat’s fleet of recreational electric picnic boats. And the waterfront plaza features The Capital Wheel, offering breathtaking views from 180 feet above the Potomac River.
National Harbor hosts a number of waterfront events, including culinary festivals, seasonal celebrations and standing series including Movies on the Potomac; Free Fitness Series; and Salute the Sunset, performed by United States Military Bands. And residents have exclusive access to offers, discounts and promotions at 45 retailers, restaurants, entertainment venues local to the district, as well as resident happy hours and other private events.
