Fisherman’s Wharf is a vibrant maritime waterfront neighborhood in Southwest Washington, D.C. Marshall Moya Design's proposal, commissioned by the group of local fish vendors, was to reinvigorate the streets and public spaces of Fisherman’s Wharf in order to enhance the beauty of the neighborhood and preserve its roots.
The urban plan includes pedestrian piers with new paving, lighting, and landscaping. A parking garage with a rooftop garden and an observation deck will provide parking spaces with pleasant views and extensive vantage points for tourists and locals. The Washington Marina will contribute a variety of new restaurants with the addition of a Virgo fish market. The resulting urban design will support the lively Wharf environment, preserve its historical significance for Washington D.C.’s fishing fleet, and help revitalize the Wharf’s economic growth.
