Retail, Fountain, Ice Rink Slated for Washington Harbour



Work to upgrade the retail level of Georgetown's Washington Harbour has begun, owners MRP Realty and Rockpoint Group LLC announced today. Washington Harbour is undergoing a $20 million exterior renovation led by architecture firm Gensler and general contractor Clark Construction, after a flood pushed out the restaurants that once lined the riverfront pavilion.

Some of the most significant changes are slated for the lower level. Those upgrades include retail storefront improvements and a revamped fountain with lights and animated jets that will double as a 12,000-square-foot ice skating rink in the winter.

Work on the lower level is scheduled for completion in the fourth quarter of 2012, and the fountain will be completed by the end of this summer.
