District Wharf: A Waterfront Wonderland of Residences

Washington’s hottest new area, The District Wharf, is now in full swing this Fall! What used to be a run down industrial stretch, with the Maine Avenue Fish Market, opening in 1805 making it  the oldest open-air continuously operated fish market in the US, as its anchor storefront, has been transformed into a luxury waterfront complex right along Maine Avenue. This mile long stretch in Southwest D.C. is now where 4 top of line residences and 3 innovative hotels call home.

525 Water provides your urban oasis with soft, a tranquil color pallet of creams, grays, and taupe balanced with bold elements of green to tie in the natural surroundings. The warm colors and smooth surfaces of the interior space sharply contrasts the darker tones and rough textures that come together in the courtyard, the perfect place to decompress after work.

DC Channel takes urban design to the next level. Bright reds, blues, and blacks in fun patterns combine to create a bold common space but plush fabrics and earthy hues blend to create a welcoming aura in residence’s private living quarters. Channel focuses on the blurring the lines between inside and out by incorporating wooden textures and cool metal structures into a fabulous outdoor entertaining area that is sure to be the envy of all.

Incanto redesigns modern city living and incorporates clean lines into their take on industrial chic. The combination of cool grey metals in the bar stools, topped with wood, brings man and nature together as one, the ultimate goal of the Wharf’s revitalization. Incanto creates a comfortable and refined style sure to last as long as the Maine Avenue Market.

Vio, the luxury waterfront residence, desires to bring the outdoors in with floor to ceiling windows in the front of every unit creating a stunning view of the water for those within as well as a beautiful glass exterior for on lookers. The upscale interior utilizes contrasting colors to boldly define the space. Bright white cabinets reflect the open airy feeling of the unit while the darker wood and leather elements adds sophistication.
