Ideally situated next to Ronald Reagan National Airport, a stone's throw from the Pentagon, and a quick drive or Metro ride from DC, it’s no wonder Crystal City was chosen by Amazon to establish a portion of their major new headquarters. Already home to thriving tech companies like Bytecubed, Eastern Foundry and WeWork/WeLive, the technology giant will invest more than $2 billion in the surrounding area to establish its new headquarters. The neighborhood's growing Millennial population will be joined by at least 25,000 high-wage jobs at Amazon in the next 12 years, which makes the neighborhood ripe for exciting dining and shopping options.
With JBG Smith, a developer well-versed in creating a sense of place, assuming control of numerous properties in 2017, Crystal City is already being reshaped into a vibrant, round-the-clock community that matches its potential as Arlington's gateway into DC.
Even before Amazon's arrival, Crystal City offers retailers a massive customer base with 5,200 hotel keys, 11.5 million SF of office space, and nearly 8,000 housing units – all the highest totals of any Arlington urban village.
