CMGs and CMG Candidates will meet at the Channel Inn also known as the Wharf offices, 680 Water Street SW Washington DC 20024. The tour will last approximately 60 minutes.  Please wear long pants and closed toe shoes.  We will spend a few minutes in the marketing center at the model talking about the history of development in this area and the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative which laid the ground work for development at the Wharf and along the Anacostia in SE.  We will then walk through Phase 1 which opens to the public on October 12th, and includes nearly 2 million sf of new construction including 3 hotels, 2 apartment buildings, one condo building, a new concert venue, dozens of retail shops and restaurants as well as 10 acres of public open space including 4 new public piers.  The tour will be mostly on the ground floor walking along the public streets and piers. Our thanks to Carol Wilken for setting up this event!

Question:  What is the difference between a wharf and a pier?
