Washington, D.C. — Co-developers Madison Marquette and PN Hoffman will open The Wharf on Oct. 12 in Washington, D.C.
Phase I of the $2.3 billion project will deliver two office buildings, two apartment towers, two luxury condominium buildings and three hotels, as well as restaurants and retail space.
The Wharf is a mixed-use waterfront community that stretches across 24 acres of land and more than 50 acres of water. The development features 3.5 million square feet of new residential, office, hotel, retail, marina and public uses including waterfront parks, promenades, piers and docks.
Some of the announced retail tenants include CVS/pharmacy, Shake Shack, District Doughnut, Bella Moda Spa, Blue Bottle Coffee, Politics and Prose, Ligne Roset and Dolcezza Gelato and Coffee. Restaurants including Del Mar, Hank’s Oyster Bar and Potomac Distilling Co. will also open locations within the development.
Madison Marquette and PN Hoffman broke ground on the project in March 2014. Phase II construction will begin in the coming months, with delivery scheduled for 2021.
Four entertainment piers extend into the Potomac River, one of which will be used as an ice rink in the winter. The Transit Pier will accommodate water taxis.
Anthem, a 6,000-seat concert hall, will open with a launch concert by the Foo Fighters. David Rockwell designed the interiors of the venue.
