Hoffman-Madison Waterfront Reveals Name and Design of The Wharf’s Final Apartment Building, The Tides

Today, Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW), the development partnership behind The Wharf, announced the name and design of The Tides apartment building in The Wharf neighborhood. The building’s unique geometric design steps backward and forward, mimicking the movement of the tides, and inspired the building’s name. Leasing will begin this spring with move-ins slated to begin this summer. 

Ideally located on DC’s vibrant waterfront, The Tides is nestled within the heart of The Wharf neighborhood adjacent to the new luxury hospitality brand from Montage International, Pendry Washington, D.C. The building’s waterside location offers future residents unique experiences only The Wharf has to offer, from local dining and concerts to water activities and programming all year long, paired with inspiring views and warm, inviting spaces designed to evoke a welcoming sense of home.

The 12-story, 239,000 square-foot residential building will feature 255 dynamic residences, including market rate units and units at 30 percent, 60 percent, 100 percent and 120 percent of the median family income (MFI). The residences offer sophisticated finishes and a variety of floor plans from studios to two bedroom units. The Tides is the only apartment residence at The Wharf offering waterfront terraces, and 73 of the apartments feature private outdoor space with inspiring views. The building also features three penthouse residences that range from one to two bedrooms with spacious terraces. 

“With its prime location at The Wharf, The Tides offers incredible connectivity to the neighborhood’s many restaurants, shops, parks and entertainment options,” said Michelle Giannini, Executive Vice President of Multifamily & Brand at Hoffman & Associates. “With a tiered, geometric façade inspired by the water’s ebb and flow, The Tides’ unique design allows for striking views of the Potomac and a diverse mix of residences to serve the community and welcome residents home.”

Designed by the acclaimed architecture firm ODA New York, each residence at The Tides features modern finishes and design features including open layouts, stainless-steel appliances, quartz countertops, open kitchens and in-unit washers and dryers. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide panoramic views of the waterfront, monuments, city skyline and The Wharf. The building’s distinctive structure mimics the movement of the tides and perfectly complements the neighboring waterside buildings. 

The Tides will feature over 6,000 square feet of interior and exterior amenity space, including:

  • The Gym: A 2,600+ square-foot fitness and wellness center featuring a double-height space with state-of-the-art equipment and The Studio, a 700 square-foot dedicated yoga space.
  • The Den: A gathering space featuring a signature double-sided fireplace, TV, wet bar, lounge seating and dining areas.
  • The Living Room: An inviting lounge space including a fireplace, comfortable seating and games that opens to The Terrace. 
  • The Terrace: An 800 square-foot outdoor space that offers areas for relaxation, entertaining, grilling and dining alfresco.
  • The Office: A conference room with video-conferencing technology as well as a private call room.

The building will also include 13,000 square feet of highly-anticipated new retail offerings on the ground level. These include Bartaco, which combines fresh, upscale street food and cocktails with a coastal vibe in a relaxed environment, as well as The Goddard School early childhood education provider, opening its second Southwest neighborhood location. The Wharf recently announced a very exciting line-up of restaurants which will be opening later this year including: Philippe by Philippe Chow, Gordon Ramsay Hell’s Kitchen, Lucky Buns, Mason’s Famous Lobster Rolls, Kilwin’s Chocolates & Ice Cream and more. These will add to The Wharf neighborhood’s new half-mile of restaurants, shopping, marinas, piers, parks and more – completing a full mile of waterfront offerings this year. 

The Wharf is one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in Washington, DC with activities and events year-round ranging from yoga on District Pier to over a half mile of dedicated bike path and trails to the annual Jazz Fest celebration and holiday ice rink, as well as many opportunities to get out on the water from boating and kayaking to paddle boarding and more. The Wharf is also home to The Anthem, the celebrated 6,000-person waterfront music venue which opened in 2017, as well as two other more intimate concert halls. Residents at The Tides will experience all that this dynamic waterfront neighborhood has to offer.
