Buzzard Point is part of the Capitol Riverfront Business Improvement District (BID), a 500-acre neighborhood situated between I-395 and the Anacostia River smartly designed to give businesses, residents, retail, and guests an exciting environment to explore, connect, and thrive. New restaurants, retail, hotels, residences, and office spaces are opening every month in Capitol Riverfront, DC’s fastest growing neighborhood. There is always something new to discover in this dynamic waterfront location.
Here, at the convergence of the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers, a model for connected city living springs to life. This is Buzzard Point, a neighborhood bringing its own unique character to the Capitol Riverfront. Peninsula 88 is at the very tip of Buzzard Point, taking advantage of the premier waterfront location.
The Anacostia Riverwalk Trail is a multi-use trail system in Washington, DC, which, when complete, will be ~25 miles long, spanning both sides of the Anacostia River, the Washington Channel waterfront, and projecting into neighborhoods away from the Anacostia. The trail will connect to Douglass Bridge and Buzzard Point before turning north, but for now, it detours on the road on Potomac Avenue, First Street, SW and P Street, SW to Southwest Waterfront Park.
Right in front of Peninsula 88 will be the 3.5 acre Buzzard Point Park that will link landscapes along the waterfront to provide a continuous public open space system, develop the banks of the Anacostia River as an enjoyable and unique urban park with a mix of active and passive recreational opportunities, and ensure that Anacostia Park continues to develop as a regional recreational and ecological resource. The plan for the park includes uninterrupted access to the river’s edge, a pedestrian promenade, a kayak launch, grass dunes, open lawn areas, restrooms and other facilities.
