It’s time to pick the best of the best

The year is swiftly coming to a close, and it’s time to take a look back and see what was the good, the bad, and the better than expected. For Curbed DC, let’s focus on the brand new architectural structures that have arrived on the scene, and—thankfully—there are so many to choose from.

This year, West End unveiled a brand new library, resembling glassy Jenga blocks doing the twist. The Museum of the Bible also finally opened its doors after gutting the former building and redeveloping it into some swanky new galleries.

Fort Totten’s art-filled, amenity-packed residential development, known as The Modern at Art Place, also arrived, while Woodley Park’s historic Wardman Tower completed a two-year restoration, leaving it looking better than ever.

Of course, there are too many buildings to consider when it comes to The Wharf.

What have been your favorites, though? Are there any new buildings that have really pleased you? Let Curbed DC know in the comments.
