The Wharf

Located on the historic Washington Channel, the Wharf is a mixed-use development that integrates residential, office, retail, hotel, and cultural facilities with numerous public spaces, including a three-acre waterfront park, along a total of 27 acres with over 3.2 million sf.

  • The Tides Apartments and Pendry Hotel (Parcel 8) – features both apartments and hotel rooms atop 26,000 sf of retail space. There are 255 apartment units and 131 hotel keys along with amenities such as outdoor courtyards, collaborative event spaces, and a rooftop bar.
