Crystal City is the newly redefined and masterfully updated downtown located on the banks of the Potomac river. Residents are encompassed by dramatic views of Washington DC and Reagan National Airport. Once you've been to the Crystal City, you won't want to ever live anywhere else.
The revitalized area now offers everything and anything you could desire. There are premier offices, luxury condos, world class hotels, upscale shopping, boutiques, inspired fine dining, and local services and shops, all nestled along tree lined trees punctuated by amazing parks and green spaces. This is what living is all about.
There is a wide range of dining options, all the way from ultra trendy to sidewalk cafe. There are over 150 stores, shops and eateries. Many weekends you can find local musicians performing while you enjoy an amazing meal and drinks. The shopping and dining takes on an amazing atmosphere that can only be experienced. From the pleasant walkways and welcoming attitudes, to the breathtaking views of DC, Crystal City was designed to be more than just a line of stores; it was designed with you in mind. The careful artful and stylish community planning has made the area capable of offering everything you would dream of in an ultimate destination, while still making you immediately feel right at home.
