Construction begins on residential towers in National Landing
JBG Smith build near Amazon HQ2 in Arlington will have 808 apartments
Developer JBG Smith announced Friday that it has begun construction on two residential towers at 1900 Crystal Drive in National Landing.
The development will include 808 apartments and approximately 40,000 square feet of street-level retail across from two new mixed-use buildings. The 27-story southern tower will include 471 apartments; the 26-story northern tower will include 337 apartments. The buildings, which will be approximately 300 feet tall, have been designed by architecture firm COOKFOX in collaboration with Torti Gallas + Partners.
“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 for JBG, in a statement. “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.”
