Hoffman-Madison Waterfront, the developer of the Wharf in Southwest DC, just released details for two rental buildings coming to the site. With 501 units, the Channel (above) is among the largest apartment projects under construction in Washington. The apartments—a mix of micro-units and one- and two-bedrooms—will sit atop a 6,000-person concert hall that will be operated by the owner of the 9:30 Club. (Developer Monty Hoffman went to great—and expensive—lengths to ensure the residences will be sound-proof, even on show nights.) Communal areas will include a one-acre outdoor space on the sixth floor with an infinity pool overlooking the waterfront, a dog run, bocce courts, and a fitness room.
The second building, the Incanto, includes 148 apartments. It will have studios, and one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities include a fitness center, resident lounge, and a central courtyard with grills and a fire-pit. Pricing has not been released for either building, but pre-leasing begins in the spring.
