crystal city - arlington va

For many people Crystal City conjures up more recent news, named as the site of Amazon’s new headquarters, but there’s much more to the area. The modern vision of the Crystal City we see today actually stretches back for generations.

Long before the 1960s rolled around, Crystal City was mostly industrial. The area was filled with junkyards, industrial sites and lower-rent motels. A drive-in theater once sat in the area, but you hardly found many of the buildings you see today.

By the mid-century, plans were being drawn up that would transform the area for the next several decades. That’s when Crystal City’s very first apartment building went up, named Crystal House after the massive crystal chandelier in its lobby. The name quickly caught on

It could someday be extremely easy to make your way from Crystal City to National Airport. The Crystal City Business Improvement District hopes to spur interest in a future plan linking the two sites via a pedestrian walkway.
