The District Wharf

The District Wharf is a mile-long stretch along the Washington Channel that is changing the waterfront in Southwest Washington, DC. Comprised of 24 acres of land and 50 acres of water, it will include 14 buildings and 10 acres of public space once complete. The facilities include a new concert hall, hotels, four public piers, parking, and commercial, residential, and mixed-use buildings. Langan provided a peer review of the previous stormwater management design that was completed for Phase 1 construction of the Wharf. To improve the resiliency of the original proposed stormwater and plumbing design, Langan designed an automated system to redirect stormwater from extreme rainfall events away from the cisterns prior to overloading them. We also provided design drawings, operations and maintenance manual, and construction administration for the proposed valve system and controls.
