Honestly, with so many waterfronts being built in and around D.C., the DMV could have one of the best waterfronts in the country. The activation of the water's edge happening around the rivers is just mind blowing. It's everywhere and I can honestly say D.C. could become a waterfront city known for its waterfront's. The developments are destination's that will draw people from around the region. It will change the dynamic of the city and it's a refreshing change for D.C. which has not had a water presence.

-Alexandria Waterfront

-Yards Waterfront

-Wharf Waterfront

-National Harbor

-Poplar Point Waterfront

-Buzzard Point Waterfront

-Georgetown Waterfront
I live in the DC area, and have never heard of most of these developments. Can you identify where each of these are? And are these approved developments or juct conceptual designs?

Google?

The Wharf is, um, where the Wharf is. It's where 7th Street terminates at Maine Avenue in Southwest.

The Yards, I believe, is the area near Nats Park and behind the DOT building.

The National Harbor is the big complex you see when crossing the Woodrow Wilson Bridge into Maryland.

Poplar Point is the area on the other side of the Frederick Douglas Bridge.

Buzzard Point is in SW. When crossing the Frederick Douglas Bridge into Greater SE, it's to your right.

History is what makes Baltimore's waterfront special. So yeah, time will tell - in approximately 200 years or so. Cold Stone and Panera on the Anacostia can't touch this:

Panera Bread and Cold Stone? LOL.............this is not Baltimore. We will not have restaurants like that on our worldclass waterfronts like Baltimore does with places like Cheesecake factory on it's waterfront lol!!!

D.C. is going to have worldclass restaurants with worldclass chefs on our waterfronts. This is not Baltimore. We actually have worldclass restaurants in our city. There may be a few chains, but the developers want mainly chef driven restaurants.

Have you ever heard of Michael White? Famous chef in Soho in New York? Well he is opening an "Osteria Morini" DC location of his world famous Soho restaurant this year in the Yards waterfront and he is just the tip of the iceberg of worldclass restaurants opening on D.C.'s waterfront.
