The Watergate: DC’s Prestigious Cooperative
Steeped in history and in luxury, The Watergate remains a prestigious DC cooperative to this day, even decades after its famous name first etched its way into American history books. Noted as the city’s first “mixed use” development, The Watergate is made up of six buildings situated along the Potomac River, three of them being residential co-ops.
The Watergate is located on a full 10 acres in Foggy Bottom, providing sensational views of DC monuments, the Kennedy Center and the Potomac River. Building upon its impressive location, the complex also offers large floor plans, with many units including large private balconies, along with supplying private rooftop terraces with the penthouse units.
While some of the smaller units within The Watergate are priced starting in the mid $300,000s for a one-bedroom home of around 600 square feet, there are also larger units of three-bedrooms, priced in the multi-million dollar range. In all, The Watergate West, East and South buildings come together to offer an impressive selection of 600 inviting residences.
As well, the amenity-rich complex also offers a hotel, shopping mall, medical offices, a grocery and pharmacy, in addition to restaurants, a doorman and a 24-hour front desk. Other extras include outdoor swimming pools and added security, as well as the safety and convenience of garage parking. Walkways help connect the buildings for the ease of residents and guests.
Home to a number of high-ranking political figures, The Watergate is also close to the restaurants and outdoor recreation of nearby Georgetown, Washington Harbor and Thompson Boat House. In addition, the building is not far from the other DC area attractions as well as some cultural landmarks, government buildings and George Washington University. While its simple to walk around Foggy Bottom, the area is easily accessible via public transportation and served by a Metro stop.
