TransPotomac Canal Center Plaza

Located two blocks east of Watergate, TransPotomac Canal Center, its cornerstone laid in 1987, is re-waterproofing and refurbishing its main plaza, which overlooks the Potomac River at the western terminus of First Street.  The year-long project was completed in the summer of 2017.

According to the Washington Business Journal and Virginia Business, this four-building waterfront office complex, with nearly 540,000 square feet of prime office space, was sold in October 2014 for nearly $180 million to a joint venture that includes American Real Estate Partners, which, according to its website, is a "privately held real estate investment company focusing on commercial real estate assets and real estate financial instruments in the major markets along the Eastern Seaboard of the United States."  The company also owns the Carlyle Center in Alexandria and at least 10 other buildings in Northern Virginia alone.

The photo above right shows one of the new raised planter beds on the re-landscaped plaza.  Below are before-and-after photos of the main plaza, including a pciture of the elaborate centerpiece fountain at Canal Center named the Promenade Classique Sculpture Garden.
