The marina which is visible is in Pentagon Lagoon, which is part of the Boundary Channel of the Potomac River.

Author "DoD photo by Master Sgt. Ken Hammond, U.S. Air Force."

The photo appears to date back to the late 1980s or early 1990s. The "portal" office buildings at the DC end of the 14th Street Bridge have not yet been built. The extra spacing for handicapped parking have not been added yet to the South Parking lot. However, the bus bays for the metro station are there, so it is after 1976.
