A seafood stand at D.C.'s Southwest Waterfront.

While lots of attention is being given to the massive new development dubbed The Wharf along Washington Channel, that is only one of many new projects being built in Southwest Washington, taking advantage of the area’s proximity to the National Mall and the city’s major rivers. But from an iconic fish market to historic public housing, developers and planners have to consider how to best integrate new spaces with the unique urban fabric of D.C.’s smallest quadrant. We speak with architect Roger Lewis and a member of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission serving the area about the changing face of Southwest Washington.
