WASHINGTON — An election. Protests. Commuter changes. A D.C. legend lost.
Take a look back at the local news stories that dominated the headlines in 2017.
10. Southwest Waterfront transforms with opening of the Wharf
Three years after groundbreaking, the District’s largest new development project, an entire community known as District Wharf, opened in October.
The development includes office buildings, restaurants, two music venues and access to the Potomac River. Nearly 2,000 residents will call the new apartments and condos home.
The $2.5 billion project includes 3 million square feet and redeveloped a mile of riverfront. And that’s just Phase 1.
