Southwest Washington, DC Homes and Condos for Sale

As far as land mass is concerned, Southwest Washington, DC homes and condos for sale represent the smallest piece of the pie in the District. That said, the pie tastes pretty good along The Wharf and other parts of the waterfront!

To get a better sense of how Washington’s four quadrants are configured, imagine the US Capitol building as the nexus. Sectors such as Northwest Washington are much larger, geographically speaking, because of the distance from the Capitol to the Maryland border. In the case of Southwest Washington, the distance south from the Capitol to the Virginia border on the other side of the Potomac River, is relatively short. That said, the Washington waterfront itself has been a hotbed of new development, including some of the most exciting and coveted luxury condos for sale in the region.

Exploring the Southwest Waterfront

The Southwest Waterfront is rich in history, dating back to the late 1700s when it was both a shantytown as well as an area with large mansions overlooking the water. Fishing was a major industry at the time, with the Maine Avenue Fish Market opening in 1805. The four Wheat Row townhouses are among the oldest residential structures in Washington, dating to 1794. They still stand today, incorporated into Harbour Square, a 440-unit mid-century modern cooperative built in the 1960s.

The Southwest Waterfront is somewhat notorious in terms of city redevelopment. The 1950s saw much of the area razed, not only to accommodate the construction of the nearby Interstate 495/Capital Beltway, but also a spate of new office buildings as well as apartments and cooperative housing. Most recently, a decades old planning effort culminated in the new District Wharf, commonly referred to as The Wharf for short.

Developed by Hoffman & Associates and Madison Marquette, The Wharf covers 27 acres of land as well as 50 acres of water. The first phase was delivered in 2017, with continuing additions since. The result is an exciting destination place for visitors and residents alike with a promenade, three new piers, music venues, dockside cafes, high-end restaurants, boutique retailers, a movie theater, and new upscale condos for sale. The Municipal Fish Market is the renamed Maine Avenue Fish Market, and as the oldest continually operating fish market in the United States, is one of the few holdovers from the earliest days of the Southwest Waterfront.

New luxury condominium buildings in Southwest Washington, DC, include VIO with its stunning views of the Washington Channel, the next-door Amaris with its distinctive twisting shape, 525 Water, and Peninsula 88 which is positioned at the furthermost tip of the Buzzard Point at the convergence of the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers. This part of Washington has burst into prominence once again and represents one of the hottest segments of the real estate market.
