Capitol Riverfront Real Estate, Washington DC

Real estate for sale in Capitol Riverfront is part of an evolving trend, ranging from 19th century row houses to new high-rise glass and steel towers. And while there’s some early Washington, DC history here, the emphasis is on a forward-thinking revitalization effort that will add a substantial number of new residences over the coming years.

The Capitol Riverfront neighborhood stretches in an elongated shape for one and a half miles eastward from S. Capitol Street to where Pennsylvania Avenue meets the Anacostia River. Much of Capitol Riverfront borders the Navy Yard and is in fact, an integral component of the ambitious Anacostia Waterfront Initiative, aimed at transforming a huge area on the western side of the river into a vibrant urban territory, ripe with retail, restaurants, entertainment and fabulous homes for sale.

Capitol Riverfront Neighborhood Information

While Capitol Riverfront was “created” by the city council as a newly-named neighborhood in 2003, the area itself dates back to the 1800s when it was a lively wharf with a riverfront residential community, streetcars and bustling commercial districts.

Now, a 500 acre swath of land that had fallen into considerable decay and decline, is being redeveloped into mixed-use green-friendly residential complexes, along with a host of amenities. The new residences include luxury apartment rentals along with condos and townhomes for sale. Nearly 3,000 units have been delivered so far with many more to come. 

Attractions & Amenities in DC's Capitol Riverfront

Capitol Riverfront is closely associated with the Navy Yard—once the military’s busiest shipyard before falling into an era of industrial pollution and downsizing. Integrated development projects include Nationals Park (home to MLB’s Washington Nationals), Riverwalk Trail, Half Street entertainment district, Fairgrounds Outdoor Market, Capitol Quarter Townhouse community, Velocity Condos, and Foundry Lofts—an adaptive reuse of a historical Navy Yard industrial building.
