Once in a generation opportunity
The Capitol Riverfront, the "Front," is DC's new neighborhood on the river, a growing district-within-the-District that extends the city’s skyline to the water’s edge. Located just five blocks south of the US Capitol Building, the Front offers the best in city living with the extraordinary advantages of a riverfront setting, distinct industrial heritage, and access to what matters: unique parks and trails, sports and entertainment, exceptional value, and proximity to Capitol Hill. In the Front, DC’s businesses and residents are part of a once-in-a-generation opportunity—shaping a new community on the river that is leading the way in riverfront renewal and green innovation.
The Front is already home to a mixed-use community of 35,000 daytime employees in 6.8 million SF of office space including the Washington Navy Yard and U.S. Department of Transportation HQ, over 3,000 existing and under construction residential units including apartments, condos, co-ops and townhouses, a 204-room Courtyard by Marriott, and the 41,000 seat Nationals Park.
