On October 12, one of Washington, D.C.’s largest developments currently under construction is going to open to the public for the first time.

Southwest Waterfront’s mixed-use project, The Wharf, will span 27 acres of land with 50 acres of waterfront. The $2 billion project is expected to offer two new music venues, a park, a variety of retailers including Politics & Prose, a hotel, and much more.

While anticipating the upcoming opening, Curbed DC has acquired photos of The Wharf’s two apartment buildings, The Channel and Incanto. Below, get an inside look at what to expect.

The Channel

950 Maine Avenue SW

With 501 residential units, The Channel is composed of two L-shaped towers with amenities like a one-acre outdoor green space on the sixth floor, an infinity pool, and waterfront views. There is also a fitness center, dog run, community garden, bocce courts, grass yard, and grilling stations.

One of the bigger, more notable amenities is The Anthem, which is a 6,000-person music venue headed by the owners of the 9:30 Club. Washingtonian reported that the developer spent $3 million to sound-proof the building so that the music venue won’t disturb residents.

The Perkins Eastman-designed property will only offer studios, one-, and two-bedrooms. Nearly a third of the units average 350 square feet.

Rents start at $1,970 per month with an annual amenity fee of $750.


770 Maine Avenue SW

Similarly to The Channel, Incanto will only offer studios, one-, and two-bedrooms. There will be a total of 148 units with amenities that will include a fitness center, resident lounge, and a central courtyard with grills and a fire pit.

Square footage ranges from 395 square feet to 1,024 square feet. Rents start at $1,965 per month with a $450 annual amenity fee.
