The Wharf reestablishes Washington, DC, as a waterfront city and destination. This remarkable, mile-long stretch along the Potomac River comes to life with restaurants, retailers, residences, and businesses—all complemented by monumental views and a vibrant culture. Part of the new renovation includes (17) 3′ square x 10’ tall fabric lantern shades that are fixed to 24’ tall poles. The array of lights illuminates the entire waterfront walkway for a safe and festive atmosphere. A versatile Terrace Canopy was also implemented along the waterfront as a seating area out of the harsh elements of the hot summer sun or those cold snowy winters.
