Homes for Sale

The community of Southwest Waterfront features a number of attractive home designs and prices.

Where to Live

Southwest Waterfront is separated from other parts of D.C. by busy streets, making for a more private, calm residential life. The neighborhood is comprised primarily of condos, co-ops, townhouses, and apartment buildings--there are even some houseboats. Due to the urban renewal of the neighborhood, the area is composed primarily of modern architecture, which sets it apart from the rest of D.C.

Where to Eat

Southwest Waterfront has one of the most exciting culinary scenes of D.C. Its proximity to the water lead to the development of the Main Avenue Fish Market, selling cooked and raw seafood. There also are many popular local restaurants with distinctive menus, enjoyable atmospheres, and plenty of characters.

What You'll See

Southwest Waterfront is one of D.C.'s most diverse neighborhoods, and every year the diversity increases. There are a lot of federal employees who have been living in the area for decades, leading to a wide age range of middle aged to retired residents. Recently, there has also been an increase in the number of young families and singles living in the area, perhaps due to the decent property prices.

Friday Night Fun

Start your Friday night with a meal at one of the unique restaurants of the neighborhood. If looking for a popular restaurant, stop by Chinatown to visit some nationally popular--and a couple world famous--restaurants. For entertainment, the options are endless. Check out the local art galleries, museums, or concerts at the Verizon Center, or simply watch a movie or shop at the local stores. End the night with a drink at one of Chinatown's casual bars.

The Perfect Sunday

Jog along or walk down to the Main Avenue Fish Market to indulge in some people watching or grocery shopping. Grab a quick bite to eat from a small, casual restaurant, before taking a quick walk to a local neighborhood. Check out the Smithsonian museums, see a movie in Chinatown, or watch a game at the Nats stadium.
