Washington, DC – District of Columbia Mayor Bowser today released “Resurgence of the Anacostia Waterfront: 15 Years of Progress Along the Anacostia River,” a report (PDF) of the efforts of District government, community and other partners in achieving the vision of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative. In 2017, the DC Council passed a Sense of the Council resolution to declare 2018 as the “Year of the Anacostia”.

“Washington, DC is growing at an incredibly fast pace, and the Anacostia waterfront is a prime example of the positive changes we have seen throughout the District,” said Mayor Bowser. “From new housing and public waterfront access for our longstanding residents, to regional attractions such as The Wharf, Nationals Park, and Audi Field, the Anacostia waterfront is becoming a place for residents across all eight wards to enjoy, making Washington, DC a true waterfront city!”

Part of the District’s rapid population growth has taken place along the Anacostia waterfront, which includes Capitol Riverfront/Navy Yard, one of DC’s fastest growing neighborhoods. Between 2010 and 2025, the District of Columbia is expected to add an estimated 35,000 new residents in Anacostia waterfront neighborhoods.

In 2003, the Anacostia Waterfront Framework Plan set a visionary and ambitious agenda for the revitalization of the Anacostia River waterfront as a world-class destination and center of 21st century Washington, DC. The Anacostia waterfront stretches along diverse neighborhoods in Wards 5, 6, 7, and 8. This progress report lays out the impacts of public, private, and community investment over the 15-year period since the development of the plan, illustrated with maps, photos, and data on key areas of progress along the Anacostia waterfront.

In 2016, the Bowser Administration established the Anacostia Waterfront Interagency Working Group, led by the DC Office of Planning (OP), to formalize collaboration across District agencies and with non-profit, federal, and regional partners to maximize the potential of the Anacostia Waterfront for economic development, revitalization, recreation, and environmental value, while promoting resilience and equity. This Progress Report is an outcome of the working group, summarizing accomplishments of the Anacostia waterfront and providing a look-ahead to what comes next.

Letter from the Mayor

Dear Washingtonians,

Washington, DC is a growing city. From sports and entertainment to museums and restaurants, we are a city that has something for everyone—a place where you can walk to work or take the train, hike through Rock Creek Park or ride your bike along the waterfront. We’re a leader in tech and innovation. A city where aspiring entrepreneurs can start and grow small and local businesses.

As DC grows, my Administration is focused on ensuring all residents, in every neighborhood, get a fair shot and an opportunity to participate in our city’s prosperity. And we’re always looking for more people to join us in this work.

Want to learn more about joining our team? On Monday, October 22, join me at my Administration’s Fall 2018 Resume Raiser. Meet members of my team and learn more about volunteer and career opportunities at DC Government. Learn more and RSVP HERE.

No job or idea is too big or too small for DC Government—we function as a city, a state, and a county. From fixing potholes to fighting for statehood, we do it all. Join us.

Sincerely,

Muriel Bowser
