The Wharf project in Southwest DC is just huge. I've been keeping up with it just lightly, reading news articles here and there. However, I had not quite seen it from this perspective before. Walking around Banneker Circle in SW, I stopped on the pedestrian bridge of I-395 (you can walk this to East Potomac Park island). It was just then that I saw how huge the project really is.
All the requisite numbers: $2+ billion total cost for the entire project, 1,300+ residential units, 600+ hotel rooms, 3.2+ million sq ft of mixed use buildings, 4 piers, 500 boat slips, 2,500+ underground car parking spaces, 1,700+ bicycle parking spaces, plus more. In short, a huge project that is set to be delivered in phases, promising to alter the SW quadrant and the DC waterfront in general.
