A decaying Washington waterfront returns to life

At a cost of US$2.5 billion, the Wharf waterfront project is the largest in the District of Columbia

The Wharf, which will occupy 8 ha on land and 17 on the water, will have a 1.6-km-long cobblestone promenade, four new public piers, two office buildings and three hotels. Two condominium and two apartment buildings will provide 861 residential units.


A STRUGGLING waterfront along the Potomac River will morph into a long-awaited commercial and residential destination known as the Wharf when it opens next month.

It's a return to life for the area, which was commonly known as "the wharf"...
