Crystal City

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 has become a hotbed of startup activity. It’s already home to thriving tech companies like Bytecubed, Eastern Foundry and WeWork/WeLive, and the neighborhood's growing Millennial population is looking 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 set to be reshaped into a vibrant, round-the-clock community that matches its potential as Arlington's gateway into DC.

Even before redevelopment takes place, 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.
