The smallest quadrant in the District, the Southwest Waterfront is bounded by the National Mall to the North, the Washington Channel to the West and South, and South Capitol Street to the East.
The Southwest Waterfront is a historic example of mid-century modern architecture that was built during the neighborhood’s renaissance in the 1960s. I.M. Pei, Charles Goodman, and Chloethiel Woodard Smith were among the renowned architects that designed much of the neighborhood. Most of the apartment buildings feature two-story lobbies with no residences on the ground floor... a design feature that is not found other neighborhoods in DC.
Southwest Waterfront has many treasures from the open green spaces within the various associations, to Waterfront Park along the Washington Channel, to the Titanic Memorial, to a weekly farmers market, to the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, to the community garden, to the Southwest Duck Pond. The Municipal Fish Market is the oldest, continuously-operating, open air fish market in the United States. Many Broadway shows are born at the Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater in SW DC.
The District Wharf has risen along the Channel as the latest addition to the neighborhood, bringing stunning waterfront residences, new restaurants, and more entertainment venues to the neighborhood.
For sports fan, Southwest Waterfront is close the Nationals Ballpark and will soon be the home of D.C. United’s new soccer stadium at Buzzard Point.
Easily accessible by any means of transport, SW Waterfront will pleasantly surprise you when you see all it has to offer.
