The commercial properties, 800 Maine Avenue at 220,000 square feet, and 1000 Maine Avenue at 265,000 square feet, will be available with the first phase of The Wharf development scheduled to open in the third quarter 2017. The Class A properties are anticipated to achieve Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification for Building Design and Construction (LEED BD+C).

“Across Washington, D.C. we are seeing an expansion of varied, but centralized cores as we attract and retain new businesses and a growing population,” said Monty Hoffman, managing member of Hoffman-­‐Madison. “The Wharf in Southwest will offer unparalleled waterfront office space to rival any of the four quadrants of the District amidst dynamic lifestyle amenities for working, living, boating, dining, shopping and entertaining. There has never been an opportunity of the size, location and development potential anywhere in the nation’s capital.”

The Wharf Club, an exclusive urban lifestyle amenity for 800 Maine Avenue office tenants, features a 7,000­square foot fitness center, spacious rooms available for congregating or meeting along with an infinity edged pool and one acre park overlooking Washington Channel atop Wharf Hall, D.C.’s newest 6,000 person music venue and convention hall.

"Cushman & Wakefield is excited to have the opportunity to work with Hoffman-­‐Madison Waterfront to attract tenants to this world-class development,” said Cushman & Wakefield executive director Michael Katcher. “The commercial space opportunity here at what will be a transformative landmark community is ideal for the millennial employee lifestyle, whether part of an entrepreneurial company culture or firms that benefit from access to the nearby nexus of government departments and services."

Both available Maine Avenue properties are ideally positioned for commuters across all categories. Two major interstate highways converge within five minutes of the site, allowing for easy access to all sections of the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland. The Ronald Reagan National Airport and Pentagon Office Building Complex are within a 10 minute drive of The Wharf, and the WMATA Metrorail system operates multiple stations within a short walk of the site, including L’Enfant Plaza and Waterfront.
