Neighborhood - DOCK79 Riverport SE Neighborhood - DOCK79 Riverport SE




A combination of nautical charm and industrial urban vibe has made the Capital Riverfront one of the most sought-after destinations in the nation’s capital. In this realm, Dock 79 stands out with exclusive direct water access, some of the best river views imaginable, unique amenities and a central location that makes taking advantage of everything in this community a breeze.



PHASE 1 – Dock 79

The Capital Riverfront’s roots can be traced to its history as the home of the Washington Navy Yard. A once vibrant area prior to WWII, this spot housed the main manufacturing plant for navy ships and was the longest continually-operating naval facility in the country.  With the end of the war, the Navy Yard reduced its operations, slowing economic activity in the area. As a result many of the local industrial buildings were abandoned, leading to the demise of a once bustling community.

The specific site of Dock 79 was previously purchased and occupied by The Florida Rock Concrete Company in 1979.  Our name pays tribute to this genesis as well as to the maritime roots of the area. Members of the community who appreciated the historic value of the neighborhood and the economic significance of the waterfront locale, fought for many years to revive the area. In 2003 their voices were finally heard.

The Anacostia Waterfront Initiative was passed and, since then, $1 billion in public investments and $2 billion in private sector investments, has enabled a re-birth of the community.

Today it encompasses retail, restaurants, workplaces and modern residences that attract young professionals and families who appreciate what it means to be part of this special place.

And more to come.
