PN Hoffman, Madison Marquette Break Ground on Phase II of $2.5B Mixed-Use Project in Washington, D.C.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Locally based developers PN Hoffman and Madison Marquette have broken ground on Phase II of The Wharf, a $2.5 billion, mixed-use project fronting the Potomac River in Washington, D.C.
At full build-out, Phase II will feature 625,000 square feet of Class A office space, 255 apartments, 96 condominium units, 131 hotel rooms and a 109,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Phase II will also include a 1.5-acre park, two underground parking garages with more than 1,000 spaces, and additional dockage totaling 223 slips at The Wharf Marina.
Phase I of The Wharf, which spans a mile and is the largest private development in the city, opened in October 2017. Phase I included three hotels, two multifamily and condominium buildings, and 210,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment space.
The design team behind Phase II includes more than a dozen architects. Cianbro is the general contractor for construction of the marina component, and Balfour Beatty is handling construction of the office buildings and below-grade parking garages. Other project partners include ER Bacon Development, City Partners, Paramount Development and Triden Development.
Madison Marquette, which is owned by international investment firm Capital Guidance and merged with PMRG last summer, houses its global headquarters at The Wharf. Law firm Williams & Connolly has also committed to be the anchor tenant of the new office space under construction.
