D.C.’s Wharf Makes the City’s Housing Problems Worse – PLANETIZEN

A fantastic original reporting piece by Jerrod Laber of Young Voices, including photography. Learn a bit about DC’s housing situation and a subsidy ridden development called The Wharf.

“Located in the southwest quadrant of D.C. on the Washington Channel, The Wharf’s completed phase one features a series of modern, luxury highrises, a hotel, and various retail and dining options on the ground floors of each. One building features a banner that reads “Live Life Amplified”––no clarification of the amplified life’s price tag included. But it includes upscale bike stores, public marshmallow roasts, rooftop cocktail lounges, Shake Shack, ice skating rinks, and dodging troves of people on uncomfortable and thin cobblestone walkways, all as Christmas music is blasted in surround sound.”
