Project Description

Washington Harbour replaced a concrete plant on the Potomac waterfront with residential, office, retail, and dining, and in the process created one of the best urban experiences in the region. What appears to be a serene waterside plaza is only the external appearance of a complex set of hold-down piles, cofferdams, storm barriers, and floodgates required to create the riverside experience.

The award-winning mixed-use project comprises a total of 537,259 sf of trophy office/retail and 36 condominiums.  Four leading law firms occupy the 456,000 sf of offices and five leading restaurants anchor the 80,000 sf of retail.  The condominiums are among the City’s most expensive with recent sales exceeding $5 million.  Historically, occupancy has always exceeded 99%.

Washington Harbour is the only commercial development in the City on the Potomac River and as such is a critical piece of urban life in Washington D.C.
