A large new residential development is on the boards for Crystal City.
A development team led by Dweck Properties has plans in the works to demolish a portion of the Crystal Plaza Apartments at 2111 and 2101 Richmond Highway (map) and construct a 25-story, 400-unit apartment development at the addresses. The project, designed by STUDIOS Architecture, will have underground parking and retail. The development team will work with Arlington County to relocate Crystal Plaza tenants during demolition and construction.
One of the goals of the new building, per project documents filed with the county, is creating the 18-hour active environment outlined in the Crystal City Sector Plan, via transportation upgrades along Clark-Bell Street and an enhanced retail environment.
"This influx of new residents and mixed uses will not only activate the existing fabric of Crystal City, but they will also provide a built-in market for the recently proposed retail projects on this same block."
The new project (more renderings below) joins a crowded field of new residential developments coming to the National Landing area. For UrbanTurf's full rundown, click here.
