National Landing

Residential options for National Landing and surrounding areas.


The rebranding and redevelopment of Crystal City, Pentagon City and portions of Alexandria for Amazon HQ.

National Landing is situated between Crystal City, Pentagon City (Arlington) and Potomac Yard (Alexandria), with 17 million+ square feet of existing office space, 24,000 affordable housing units within two miles of the future HQ2 building, and more than 150 acres of developable land.

The state of Virginia has committed to an investment of $195M in infrastructure in National Landing, including improvements to the existing Crystal City and Potomac Yards Metro stations, and improvements to safety and accessibility, as well as a pedestrian crossing for Route over a ten year period. Arlington agreed to $28M in on-site infrastructure and open spaces creation at National Landing. The figure is based on 12% of future property tax revenues from the Tax Increment Financing district. Crystal City will be redeveloped to offer approximately 130k square feet of retail, dining and entertainment space, including a specialty grocer (think Whole Foods or Yes! Organic Market), and movie theatre.

Amazon is expected to bring over 3500 new households to the area and over 25,000 high-paying jobs over the next 12 years.

The Amazon Zone

Amazon will start off in Arlington County with 88,000 square feet of leased office space at 241 18th St. S, 191,000 square feet at 1800 S. Bell St. and 47,512 square feet at 2345 Crystal Drive in 2019. These leases will phase out as Amazon develops sites it purchased at JBG Smith’s PenPlace and portions of Metropolitan Park at 15th and Jefferson Davis Hwy. in Pentagon City. These will become its permanent home. Amazon will also fill 258,000 square feet of office space at 1770 Crystal Drive at the end of 2020 and may be negotiating additional space at 1010 Wilson Blvd.

JBG Smith plans to create new retail space in Crystal City over the next two years, and redevelop the space Amazon vacates at 1800 S. Bell and 241 18th St. at 1800 S. Bell.
