Amaris (Parcel9) Details

Amaris is an ultra-luxury 12 story, 96 unit condominium with ground floor retail. It will be the sole and final condominium in The Wharf’s Phase II development. Meaning "eternally lovely" in Greek, Amaris holds the prime waterfront position at The Wharf and its name references the "wellness" theme of the project. Planned for the highly staffed, amenity-rich condominium are a mix of one bedroom and one bedroom + den units, two bedroom units, two bedroom + den units, three bedroom units and two prize 4 bedroom units offering spaces up to 4,000 SF. All units will come with parking and private outdoor spaces, per plan, according to the developer. The largest residences are located along the north and south ends of the tower, featuring views of the Potomac River, Washington Monument, and Jefferson Memorial. The tower portion of the building is designed to offer superior views overall due to its height of 130 feet. It will be the tallest building on the Wharf’s east side, sited adjacent to open public space at M Street Landing.

Amaris Design Details

Designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects, the curved form of Amaris maximizes views and allows deep daylight exposure to each residence. The building overlooks the new M Street Landing Park. A podium section covers the full site on first and second floors. A straight, narrow, mass on the west side houses levels three through five and completes the base of the building. The entrance to Amaris is located in the podium, which will also contain retail spaces on the ground floor, residences and amenities on the second and third floors, and residences on the fourth and fifth floors. The twelve-story tower portion of the building curves over the east side of the podium housing the majority of Parcel 9's residential units. The stepped façade along the east and west elevations allows maximum flexibility of interior unit layouts and its curved-glass guardrail system along continuous balconies provides unobstructed views from residences.

From Design Boom:

"As a nod to the waterfront location, the design alludes to waves and water-like movement through the building’s curved shape and use of light. while the overriding geometry of the neighborhood sympathetically follows the city’s orthogonal grid, Amaris serves as the terminus, breaking free from that geometry to acknowledge its park setting and the expansive views into and out of the wharf."
