About The District Wharf
Phase I of the District Wharf opened in October, 2017 and is the vision of developer Monty Hoffman. The Wharf’s mile long stretch of waterfront offers opportunities to live, work and play. The Wharf is world-class development that feels more like a neighborhood.
In many ways the Wharf has re-centered D.C. for the better. It is walking distance from the National Mall and has two Metro stops nearby which are L’Enfant Plaza and the Waterfront stops. Perhaps the best thing about the Wharf is that it is open to everyone providing Washingtonians and visitors much needed access to the waterfront.
Phase I includes the oldest outdoor fish market in the U.S., roughly 33 restaurants, 22 retail shops, five residences including condos, apartments and one of the country’s largest “live-aboard” marinas, three hotels and several offices. There are fun waterside activities including kayaks, games, dancing, skating in the winter and even bonfires. Several modes of transportation exists including a high-speed water taxi that travels to and from Georgetown, Old Town and National Harbor. It’s a great place to live, work, and play.
Phase 2 construction is already underway, which will include retail shops and restaurants, hotels, apartments and condos, offices, and an expanded Gangplank Marina. It is expected to be completed in 2022.
