At build-out, it’s estimated that the Capitol Riverfront will offer 37 million square feet of residential, retail and office space, along with four parks. Currently the neighborhood offers a much smaller percentage of that, yet commands more affordable office rental rates than the downtown area.

Such big names as the

By the 1950s city planners came up with a somewhat controversial plan of urban renewal, razing many of the old buildings, eventually bringing in modern architecture including

nationals park - dc capitol riverfront neighborhood   

The Capitol Riverfront neighborhood in DC has become one of the hottest neighborhoods in the city.  It features one-and-a-half miles of prime riverfront property stretching north to the U.S. Capitol.  The vibrant, new mixed-use community and riverfront destination has made it!  Thanks to baseball, the area around the Washington Nationals ballpark is transforming and seeing a rise in real estate development.  The area has turned into a desirable, and thriving, neighborhood, since the Metrorail Green Line opened its Navy Yard Metro Station in the 1990s.  Ever since, the U.S. Navy and the Department of Transportation have moved its federal workers to new headquarters in the Navy Yard complex.  Retail and other services soon followed.
