The Wharf development in Washington, DC is less than a month away from its opening.  The $2.5 billion mixed-use waterfront space will kick off the opening with The Bacon Brothers at the outdoor stage.

The project,  developed by Hoffman-Madison are looking forward to the grand opening. 

"It's incredibly exciting to be here in the 30-day home stretch after a decade of detailed planning," said Monty Hoffman, Founder and CEO of PN Hoffman. "We're bringing an unparalleled celebration to the Nation's Capital. The Wharf has always been about connecting the people to the waterfront—bringing fun and excitement to this Federal City." Hoffman added, "great food and entertainment will be hallmarks of The Wharf long past opening day."

"The Wharf will not just become a must-visit destination in Washington, DC - but will inspire and engage the Capital City with its brilliant waterfront location, shopping, dining and entertainment options," said Amer Hammour, Chairman of Madison Marquette. "One month from now, we are looking forward to welcoming friends, family and visitors to an exciting Kickoff Celebration weekend that will honor and celebrate The Wharf's historic neighborhood with ceremonial, community and culturally-sparkling events," Mr. Hammour added.

Three hotels will operate in the space – Canopy by Hilton slated to open in December of 2017, Hyatt House with a November 2017 planned opening, and Intercontinental with an estimated November 2017 opening.
