The Watergate South Residences is the iconic address’s penultimate residential tower. There have been many updates over the intervening years. Currently, the building lobby is undergoing a complete renovation. The hallways will also be given a refresh. Designed by Italian architect Luigi Moretti, the legendary cooperative complex with its signature curvilinear facades has certainly enjoyed a lasting place in Washington’s folklore. Residents at the Watergate South enjoy a saltwater outdoor swimming pool, fitness center, doorman service, front desk, 24-hour concierge service and picture perfect riverfront views.
Located between the National Mall and the historic Georgetown waterfront, the Watergate complex was Washington’s first mixed-use development. The community is home to six buildings, including the well-known Watergate Hotel. The 10-acre grounds include pristine lawns, flowering gardens and strolling paths, a park, fountains, restaurants, an art gallery and frame shop, a CVS pharmacy, a post office, dry cleaners, a deli, and a superb pastry shop that has been open since 1966, featuring over 100 varieties of sinfully delectable cake, pie, cookies, scones and tarts.
From its 1960s origins as a groundbreaking midcentury modern community, the famous Watergate still exists in a class all by its own. Ideally situated near the banks of the Potomac, the 10-acre site stands on land once used by the Washington Gas Light Company. Foggy Bottom predates the forming of the District, dating all the way back to 1763 and newly landed German settlers. The name owes to the early atmospherics coming off the water, as fog mingled with smoke from glass factories and beer breweries.
Home to George Washington University, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the State Department, Foggy Bottom occupies priceless riverfront territory with Georgetown to the north and the White House, National Mall and numerous famous landmarks to the east and south. The Foggy Bottom Metro Station is within easy strolling distance, and the on-site proximity of the Watergate Hotel is also a bonus when friends and guests come to town.
Memorialized in “All the President’s Men,” the iconic Watergate address goes hand-in-hand with a walk-friendly neighborhood that has evolved with the times. Whether it’s daytime excursions to the new Georgetown Waterfront Park or black-tie evenings at Kennedy Center, you’ll be front and center to the quintessential Washington experience.
