L'Enfant Plaza is the name for a collection of four buildings, a promenade and street, a plaza, and an underground shopping mall located in the Southwest quadrant of the city of Washington, D.C., in the United States. L'Enfant Plaza was a development financed by William Zeckendorf, with a master plan by I. M. Pei.

L'Enfant Promenade is a north-south running street which takes up two blocks between Independence Avenue SW and Benjamin Banneker Park. The center of the street contains a pedestrian promenade. The plaza itself runs in an east-west direction between 9th and 12th Streets SW. The four buildings which border the plaza are the L'Enfant Plaza Hotel (east), North Building (north), United States Postal Service Headquarters (west), and South Building (south). Underneath the plaza's northwest corner is the L'Enfant Plaza Metro station. An underground shopping mall and food court, known as "La Promenade," exists beneath L'Enfant Plaza. It links all four buildings together underground, as well as provides an underground link to the Metro station.
