The promise of the Southwest waterfront looms large. Cranes, construction equipment and a big, deep hole are indicative of a major revitalization of the historic area. Phillips Seafood and Zanzibar on the Waterfront may be gone, but in 2017, the first phase of The Wharf, a mixed-use community of housing, retail, hotels, offices, restaurants, entertainment and park space will open. According to The Wharf DC, expect a renovated Fish Market, as well as Canopy by Hilton and Hyatt House hotels. Should you want to dock your boat, there will be a new yacht club as well as new boat slips. This new playground in the city is bound to rival Maryland's National Harbor.
