The Capitol Riverfront Development Boom

Fans flocking to Nationals Park next week for the World Series will pass by a host of new buildings that have come onto the scene in the past few years, offering a revitalized landscape, as well as countless options for a pre-game snack or drink that didn’t exist a year ago.



As Bisnow recently shared, the blocks surrounding the stadium, known as the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood, have seen exponential growth recently, with new developments popping up on every corner.

Bohler has helped several ambitious developers move forward in creating nearly 20 land development projects that are transforming the neighborhood. Among them are 10 multifamily developments, including the nearly 500-unit West Half, which recently opened in September and faces Nationals Park. Across the street, 1250 Half and the adjacent eNvy residences add 440 units and 70,000 SF retail. Between the two developments, Bohler helped design a pedestrian-friendly streetscape, which connects the nearest Metro station and the stadium.


Additionally within Capitol Riverfront, Bohler has provided civil engineering and consulting services for three office buildings, one of which is One M, coming soon as the headquarters of the National Association of Broadcasters, as well as four hotels and hundreds of thousands of square feet of retail, most of which are now open for business.


The new developments are addressing the needs of the expanding area and creating a thriving live-work-play community.
