Crystal City

Crystal City, originally named for the grand chandelier in the lobby of one of this urban village’s many hotels, is in the midst of a groundbreaking new life.

Once home to numerous Federal agencies, Crystal City’s claim to fame now is not just its prime location next to Reagan National Airport, the Pentagon and dozens of Arlington’s best eateries, but also as the place to be for thriving entrepreneurs. And there are resources here to make it happen.

Places like Eastern Foundry and U.Group have made their homes in Crystal City specifically to target entrepreneurs ─ the people who are creating the innovation technologies that will become the way of the future.
