WDG designed a total of 5.5-acres, including an 8-story residential building with 253 units, an 11-story residential building with 182 units, a 184-key hotel, 246-key time share resort, and a total of 80,000-sf of retail space.

Description

The first three blocks built at National Harbor were designed by WDG, a testament to our ability to facilitate New Urbanist-type plans. The three blocks, consisting of a hotel, two condominium buildings and a time share resort, all reside on the main axis and form the center of the development. This central location made pedestrian consideration paramount. Parking entrances to underground garages were relegated to side streets and residential entrances were located on secondary streets. The result is a pedestrian-friendly main avenue lined with retail and restaurants that leads to the waterfront promenade. The firm is presently designing a fourth and fifth building for the project.
