The 1,078 Residential Units Planned for the Wharf

by Nena Perry-Brown

The 1,078 Residential Units Planned for the Wharf: Figure 1

While UrbanTurf outlined the 3,200 residential units slated for Southwest last week, the second half of the Wharf redevelopment, led by PN Hoffman and Madison Marquette on behalf of the city’s Office of the Deputy Mayor of Planning and Economic Development, has also recently come into focus. This week, we run down the residential projects that are currently on the boards for the 27 acres bound by the Washington Channel on the southwest and Maine Avenue to the northeast, between 6th and 11th Streets SW (map).

In case you missed them, here are other neighborhoods we have covered thus far:

Phase I:

The 12-story VIO condominium development at 750 Water Street SW (map) is slated for completion this fall. Designed by Handel Architects and WDG Architects, the building will deliver 112 studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units ranging from 480 to 2,650 square feet in size, including some with waterfront views and private elevators that lead to The Wharf promenade. Sales began in 2015 with the first phase selling out immediately with prices approaching $1,000 a square foot.

Next door at 770 Maine Avenue SW (map), the Incanto will deliver 148 residential units starting in August. The ground floor will contain a 6,400 square-foot District Hardware and Bike store that will sell Vigilante coffee, both inside and from a walk-up window.

Delivering this October, the Channel will be one of the larger individual Wharf developments. Located at 950 Maine Avenue SW (map), the Perkins Eastman-designed building will have two L-shaped wings containing 501 apartments, all centered around a one-acre courtyard on the sixth floor that will include an infinity pool, bocce courts, dog run, library and cabanas. Roughly 180 of the apartments will be 300-350 square-foot micro-units with built-in furniture; one-third of the apartments will be set aside as affordable or workforce housing.

The Anthem, a 6,000-seat music venue run by the team behind the 9:30 Club, and 40,000 square feet of retail will occupy the ground floor.

Phase II:

  • Parcel 8

ODA is designing a 130 foot building at Parcel 8 that will deliver 235 apartments and 116 hotel rooms in a U-shaped building. There will be a total of 35 studios, 115 one-bedrooms and one-bedroom plus dens and 85 two-bedrooms and two-bedroom plus dens. Twenty-nine of the apartments will be set aside for households earning up to 30 percent of area median income (AMI), 24 will be for households earning up to 60 percent of AMI, and 67 will be workforce housing set aside for households earning up to 100 and 120 percent of AMI.

The building will also contain five retail spaces totalling over 26,000 square feet on the ground and cellar floors, and amenities will include a fitness room, lounge and courtyard with pool on the second floor.

  • Parcel 9

Another 12-story, 130 foot-tall residential building is slated for Parcel 9, delivering 82 market-rate condos atop over 16,000 square feet of retail. Designed by Rafael Vinoly Architects, the project will deliver 8 studios, 9 one-bedrooms and one-bedroom plus dens, and 65 two-bedrooms, two-bedroom plus dens and three-bedrooms. The building will also front M Street Landing, one of the largest open spaces in the Wharf redevelopment.

Correction: The name of the music venue at the Channel was misstated; it will be called “The Anthem”.
