JBG Smith has begun construction of two residential towers at 1900 Crystal Drive in National Landing, Arlington, VA.
The development at 1900 Crystal Drive will include 808 multifamily rental units and approximately 40,000 square feet of street-level retail across two mixed-use buildings.
A 27-story southern tower will feature 471 apartments, while the 26-story northern tower will incorporate 337 apartments.
“The start of construction on 1900 Crystal Drive marks yet another major milestone in National Landing’s ongoing transformation,” said Anthony Greenberg, Executive Vice President of Development at JBG Smith.
“The introduction of new residences, restaurants and shops at 1900 Crystal Drive, combined with our recently delivered retail and entertainment district just about a block away will more than double the concentration of street-facing retail amenities on Crystal Drive. The thriving, mixed-use environment will allow people to easily walk from their home or office to their favorite restaurants and amenities – cementing National Landing as a destination both day and night,” he added.
At approximately 300 feet tall, the buildings, designed by renowned architect COOKFOX in collaboration with Torti Gallas + Partners, will be a striking addition to the National Landing skyline. In addition to a private rooftop and green spaces for residents, JBG Smith has conceptualized a new retail-served pedestrian-friendly street, which will serve as an activated connection between 18th and 20th Streets.
JBG Smith is also including a number of neighborhood-oriented improvements that will benefit the entire community. These improvements include enhanced streetscapes, a grand staircase connecting to public open space, public bike facilities, and more.
