Welcome to

Washington DC

Bright young talent is drawn to the nation’s capital each year to work for the government and the concentration of surrounding industries which serve it. Visitors come from around the world to see museums, cultural institutions and monuments. A variety of retail new and old serves those many shoppers. Adding to the region’s appeal is the recent opening of The Wharf on the city’s southwest waterfront. The new billion dollar mixed-use project with retail, entertainment, and housing is one of the city’s most prominent new developments, activating a one-mile stretch of prime waterfront real estate. Phase II is expected to bring even more retail space designed by a handful of renowned architecture firms.
