Hoffman & Associates has recently announced the groundbreaking of Waterfront Station II, a mixed-use development located in the heart of Southwest D.C. The project is less than one block from the Waterfront Station green line metro stop and three blocks from The Wharf neighborhood.

Upon completion, the 12-story, 400,000-sf building will include a mix of market-rate and affordable residences and retailers including a performing arts theater space, AppleTree Public Charter School, and a neighborhood restaurant by Good Company Doughnuts. Modern design elements will include angular glass balconies that mirror the waves of the nearby waterfront and contemporary interior finishes.

The project’s residential component includes 449 apartment units ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Thirty percent of the units (136) will be designated affordable housing units. Of those 136 units, 68 will be available to households earning at 30% of the area median income and 68 for households earning at 50% of the area median income.

Waterfront Station II will feature more than 19,000 sf of outdoor and interior amenity space. The property will offer 13 distinct amenity areas across four floors of the building. Amenities will include a 2,200-sf coworking and communal gathering space, a 3,000-sf fitness center, entertainment and hospitality lounges, and a library. Outdoor amenities include a second-floor courtyard and a rooftop terrace and pool.

Waterfront Station II is anticipated to complete in winter 2023.
