Construction has been humming along on the second phase of The Wharf, such that its 1.25 million square feet of mixed-use may all deliver by this coming October.
The massive development between the Washington Channel and Maine Avenue, from 6th to 11th Streets SW (map) will also deliver 223 additional boat slips and a 1.5-acre park. And despite the historic fish market recently losing its nearly 50-year anchor to Oxon Hill, it seems that as new construction is wrapping up along The Wharf, the development bug is rubbing off just northwest of the first phase.
Below, UrbanTurf catches up on what's soon to deliver and what is next in the residential pipeline.
In case you missed them, here are the other neighborhoods we have compiled development updates for so far this year:
- The 22 New Developments on the Boards For Downtown Bethesda
- The 1,500 Units Coming to Tenleytown and AU Park
- A Food Hall, A Fitness Bridge and The Nearly 1,700 Units in the Works For Navy Yard
- DC’s Busiest Development Neighborhood? The 20 Projects on the Boards In (And Around) Shaw
- The 1,200 Units that Delivered on South Capitol Street Over the Past Year
- The 150 Units Coming to Adams Morgan
- The Next Decade of Development at Howard University
- The 9 Potential Developments in the Works Along the DC Streetcar Line
- The 250 Residential Units Proposed Along the 14th Street Corridor
In February, Jair Lynch Real Estate Partners filed a planned unit development (PUD) application for a development that would deliver 498 apartments above 22,600 square feet of retail at the site of the former Department of Agriculture building at 899 Maine Avenue SW (map). The building will be 100-120 feet tall and will include 244 parking spaces and 110 long-term bicycle spaces.
Amenities will include a rooftop pool and a south-facing courtyard above the double-height retail. Fifteen percent of the residential space will be affordable at 60% of median family income (MFI), and the unit mix will span from studios to three-bedrooms. Perkins Eastman is the architect and Land Design is the landscape architect; a zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
At the beginning of March, Mill Creek Residential filed a PUD application to replace the Disabled American Veterans building at 807 Maine Avenue SW (map) with 207 apartments above 5,585 square feet of retail.
As designed by SK+I Architecture, the triangular project would be 11 stories tall plus a penthouse, and the double-height ground floor will be set back from the lot line to create space along 7th Street for a pocket park, public art, terraced seating, and potential outdoor dining.
The unit mix will likely span from studios to two-bedrooms with dens, and 15% of the residential space will be affordable to households earning up to 60% of MFI, with the exception of one or two units at 50% of MFI. Residential amenities will include a fitness center and a pool terrace, and there would also be up to 70 parking spaces on two below-grade levels along with 68 long-term bicycle spaces. A zoning hearing has not yet been scheduled.
Parcels 6 and 7 at 670 and 680 Maine Street SW (map) will deliver over 500,000 square feet of office space above approximately 33,000 square feet of retail and restaurants. Designed by SHoP Architects and WDG Architecture, the buildings are connected by an "Oculus" glass bridge above a porte-cochère. Law firm Williams & Connolly LLP has signed on to relocate its headquarters here, and ground-floor tenants will include Kilwins Chocolates & Ice Cream, Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls and Scissors & Scotch.
Next door, another 255 apartments and a 131-room Pendry hotel with spa are expected to begin delivering this summer. The seesaw-style building was designed by ODA and will also include a Bartaco and another outpost of The Goddard School. Amenities at The Pendry will include a second-floor courtyard with pool, and the building will also have a rooftop bar, restaurant, or lounge.
Sales started last year on the 96 condos at 601 Wharf Street SW, where Thomas Juul Hansen helmed the interior design. The unit mix will span from 700 square-foot one-bedrooms to 4,000 square-foot four-bedrooms, including some bi-level penthouses, and each unit will have private outdoor space. The conical 12-story building is designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects and will also have 16,000 square feet of retail, including a nearly 7,400 square-foot Philippe Chow restaurant.
The Atlantic is slated to occupy the top two floors of the office building on Parcel 10 at 610 Water Street SW (map). Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, the five-story building will also include 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and 10,000 square feet of terrace space.
A pair of two-story Water Buildings will house maritime services and retail/restaurant space on the dock side of the strip, the first designed by Hollwich Kushner. The second, designed by S9 Architecture, will house DC's first Hell's Kitchen restaurant this fall courtesy of Michelin-starred chef/TV personality Gordon Ramsay.
