West 8 Begins Work on Riverpoint in Washington DC
In fall 2016 West 8 urban design & landscape architecture was selected as designer for the public realm and waterfront for Riverpoint, Washington DC.
Strategically located at the confluence of the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers, the Riverpoint development will catalyze an entirely new neighborhood in Southwest Washington DC through inventive overwater programming and linkages to larger greenways.
As DC pivots from an inward, mall-focused city to one that addresses and enjoys its riverfronts, Riverpoint will provide an iconic, resilient and inviting new destination where Washingtonians can escape from the urban core to live, visit, and enjoy long views of the river.
West 8’s transformation of the property located in Buzzard Point is currently underway and is expected to move towards realization in 2017.
