Southwest Waterfront | Washington DC Real Estate

sw_waterfront_dc_400

The Southwest Waterfront is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Washington, DC. The area went through its last major transformation in the 1960’s and the prominent architecture of this small quadrant of DC strongly reflects that time period. Both Hubert Humphrey and Thurgood Marshall once lived in the neighborhood.

The neighborhood borders the U.S. Capitol building, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Mall. There are five major condo and apartment buildings that anchor Southwest DC: Carrolsburg, Harbour Square, Tiber Island, River Park, and Riverside, all of which are within a few blocks walk of the Waterfront Metro station. Rowhouses are also a real estate option in Southwest DC, although more limited than other neighborhoods in DC. Washington Marina offers the option for boat owners to live on their vessels and is one of the largest live-aboard communities in the U.S.

You will find some fantastic dining options just outside your door. Cantina Marina and the Maine Avenue Fish Market are two of the most popular dining options for locals and tourists alike. Southwest DC also features the newly redeveloped Arena Stage Theater and an enormous Safeway Supermarket. The neighborhood is a short walk from Hains Point Park, which is one of the largest parks in Washington, DC, and features golf courses, tennis courts, softball fields, and sweeping waterfront views. Nationals Park, home of the Washington Nationals baseball team, is across South Capitol Street SW from the Southwest Waterfront.

Look for many changes to come to the area in the coming years as local developers PN Hoffman and Madison Marquette have teamed up in a public/private partnership with the District of Columbia. The plan to completely transform the waterfront along Maine Avenue SW has been named "The Wharf" and Phase I should be completed by 2016. This has already included the new Washington Kastles Stadium, which hosts DC’s professional tennis team, and additional plans are for residential units, a marina, office space, retail space, hotel rooms, and parking.

Four Metro stops service Southwest DC on the orange/blue and yellow/green lines, including Smithsonian, L’Enfant Plaza, Federal Center SW, and Waterfront. Waterfront on the green line is the only stop south of I-395 and is the closest to the river. Several Metro bus lines service the area as well. 4th Street SW, 7th Street SW, and 12th Street SW are the best direct routes to access the northern side of the National Mall and downtown DC. Interstate 395 runs through Southwest DC, and provides access out to Virginia and to the Anacostia Freeway (DC Route 295) via I-695.  Reagan National Airport is four Metro stops or a 10-minute drive away. 

The Southwest Waterfront encompasses most of the small quadrant of Southwest DC, and its borders are Independence Avenue SW to the north, South Capitol Street SW to the east, and the Anacostia River, Potomac River, and Tidal Basin to the southwest.
