The Largest Revitalization Project in Washington D.C.

The Anacostia Waterfront is hot, getting a massive facelift, thanks to the 30-year, $10 billion revitalization initiative that is predicted to transform the area into a world-class waterfront.

Key Projects

A number of projects key to the successful revitalization of the area include:

  • Marvin Gaye Park - This used to be Watts Branch Park, but will now be called Marvin Gaye Park. It will include a bike trail, gardens, new ponds and more.
  • Poplar Point - This 130-acre site will become a mixed-use development with a waterfront park for recreational, commercial, and residential space.
  • Washington Canal Park - A new park with plenty of green space, this will be close to the Washington Nationals Baseball Stadium. 
  • Hill East Waterfront - Another multi-use waterfront district will be a part of the plans along the Anacostia River. This project will connect the district to surrounding neighborhoods and the waterfront.
  • The Wharf - This 47-acre site will provide more restaurants, shops and residences to the area. Plans include a new hotel, new marinas, an expanded riverfront promenade, a waterfront park, and more.  The site runs along the Washington Channel from Fort McNair to the historic Fish Wharf.

Other initiatives included in the plans are:

  • Kenilworth Parkside
  • Waterfront Station (formerly Waterside Mall)
  • Kingman Island
  • Anacostia Metro Station
  • Anacostia Riverwalk
  • The Ballpark District
  • The Yards

Ultimately the project promises a network of interconnected waterfront parks that will bring economic, environmental, and overall quality of life benefits to residents.
