Waterfront Mall, Southwest, Washington, DC

This failed mall on the riverfront in Southwest appears to have been largely demolished for redevelopment.It was a total failure, but what was cool is that it was suspended in the 1960's, complete with its sole remaining tenant, a cheap restaurant with harvest orange dining benches.The Brutalist apartment blocks lining the area still survive.


  1. Those Brutalist apartment buildings are interesting but perhaps overwhelming in such number. How many are there?

  2. There are a lot; they surround the entire area and stretch down to the river.
