DC’s businesses and residents are shaping a new community in one of the largest riverfront redevelopment districts in the United States.
Located just five blocks south of the U.S. Capitol, the Capitol Riverfront offers a waterfront setting with a distinct maritime heritage, multi-modal accessibility, nationally-recognized parks, and vibrant retail.
A Growing Neighborhood
In 2018, the neighborhood delivered 87,000 SF of new retail space and grew to 9,500 residents. At the end of 2018, there were fifteen apartment buildings, five condo buildings, two office buildings, and 306,000 SF of retail under construction.
As of December 2018, there were 487,000 SF of existing retail & restaurants, including award winning local favorites—Osteria Morini and The Salt Line. Twelve new retailers opened in 2018 including a new 35,000 SF Whole Foods Market, four beloved DC pizza chains—Wiseguy’s, Declaration, Oath, and All-Purpose—and a Lululemon location.
Diversifying Office Tenants
In 2019 the National Association of Broadcasters will open their new offices at One M, cementing the new wave of non-profits and associations moving into the neighborhood. In addition, the DC Department of Transportation announced their move and growth
within the Capitol Riverfront to 250 M in 2021, and the Retail Industry Leaders Association also found a home in the neighborhood this year at 99 M.
Home of the Washington Nationals and D.C. United professional soccer club’s new stadium, Audi Field, Capitol Riverfront welcomed 3.1 million visitors and hosted 360 community events in 2018, including the globally-televised Major League Baseball All-Star Game and Weekend festivities.
