The Riverfront Wedge intends to connect the Capitol Hill neighborhood with the Anacostia waterfront. This development aims to serve as a catalyst for urban sustainability by remediating and redeveloping a former industrial brownfield site. This structure will release fewer hazardous pollutants than other structures due to its use of sustainable construction techniques, such as mass timber, photovoltaic systems, and sophisticated mechanical systems.
By constructing a canal system, the city grid will have a better connection to the river and the site will maximize the waterfront view and access for the new proposed development. This development intends to provide a retreat from the city, and the site offers direct access to the water via a pedestrian-only upland connection. The Riverfront Wedge will provide numerous areas for pedestrians to recline, unwind, and take in the views of the Anacostia.
