SOUTHWEST WASHINGTON DC REAL ESTATE
Looking for a home in the SW Quadrant of the District of Columbia?
The southwestern quadrant of Washington, DC is its smallest by size, as well as having the fewest residential neighborhoods. Sad to say, but this particular profile will not describe mass quantities of homes and condos for sale in Southwest Washington DC, or the differences between urban and suburban real estate trends.
But we can at least tell something about how the four quadrants come together. Their point of inception lies directly over a medallion way down in the Crypt under the Rotunda in the Capitol building.
That is kind of mysterious, is it not? Like the beginning of an action-adventure treasure movie!
The SW quad is also located right at the edge of where the mighty Potomac River forms a fork—with the Anacostia River beginning and flowing northeast and the Potomac itself continuing to the northwest.

More on Homes For Sale in Southwest Washington DC
A peninsula known as Buzzard Point juts out from around the Jefferson Memorial and continuing south as a long narrow finger, ending at a park known as Hains Point. Known during early Colonial days as Turkey Buzzard Point, the peninsula eventually became something of an industrial backwater. It is now going through a resurgence, however, with the planned construction of a new 20,000 soccer stadium for the D.C. United soccer team.
The other big news is the redevelopment of Southwest Waterfront. Back in the 1800s, this was a thriving shantytown where fishmongers lived and worked among DC’s elite, with mansions overlooking the original wharf, Maine Avenue Fish Market and fishermen’s shacks.
That all changed during the 1950s when the government razed much of the area in the name of progress and high-rises. The new and improved waterfront is now becoming new and improved once again, with a decade-old plan for transformation being spearheaded by noted developers Hoffman-Madison. Dubbed “The Wharf”, this $2 billion venture covers 27 acres of land and 40 acres of water.
You can expect three new piers, live music, super-hot restaurants, a movie theater and plenty of upscale condos for sale.
So you see, there are some residential possibilities in Southwest Washington DC after all!
Further south are a number of government and military agencies and installations, including Anacostia Naval Station, Boiling Air Force Base, Defense Intelligence Agency, and the Naval Research Lab.
And that is DC’s southwest quadrant—smaller than its quadrant siblings but still highly interesting. For more information about homes for sale in SW Washington DC, give us a call today!
