Support appears to be growing for a National Landing branding campaign. As the Crystal City Business Improvement District moves forward with absorbing portions of Pentagon City and Potomac Yard, some see a name change as the next logical step in the process.

With support from commercial property owners, the Arlington County Board recently approved a 76-percent boost in land for the BID. The land in question currently sits in Potomac Yard and Pentagon City, including land slated for the new Amazon HQ2.

Supporters say going by one name would help to better distinguish the area as one unified location. It’s not a done deal just yet. Proponents of a name change say they’re still interested in hearing what community and area stakeholders have to say

dc millennials

 If you’re single, that’s one more good reason to consider making a move to the DC area. DC and Arlington were both recently named top cities for singles.  The findings come from Apartmentlist.com. Last Valentine’s Day the website ranked the best and worst cities for dating, putting both cities near the top.

The list put the most weight on one particular category. That category measured how satisfied singles are with dating opportunities in their city. The study also took into account satisfaction with a city’s social life and dating affordability. For that particular category, analysts looked at the average price it costs for two people to go out to dinner and to a movie. Then they compared the cost to median earnings of singles in the area.

Excitement is certainly growing for Amazon’s new headquarters, and it’s starting to show with a steep increase in home prices. The new Amazon HQ2 offices are coming to National Landing, and that’s already pushed home prices in the area up considerably.

 cherrydale - arlington va

A fantastic destination for families, the Cherrydale neighborhood is known for its quiet streets, area parks and its mix of housing options. This quaint community may exist in North Arlington and close to urban attractions, but it still retains more of a small-town feel.

To this day, a majority of homes in
