The Amazon real estate effect in Northern Virginia is being felt from home sales to new development.
Nearly two years ago, the owners of Crystal House Apartments applied to add a building and 252 units to the Crystal City Metro-proximate community. Now, that vision has more than tripled in size.
Roseland Residential Trust has filed a preliminary site plan application with Arlington County to add four buildings to the Crystal House community, delivering 798 units to the 17-acre site near the intersection of 18th and South Eads Street (map).
Upon completion, the entire Crystal House development will have 1,626 apartments and a total of 1,230 parking spaces. The four new buildings are proposed as the following:
- Crystal House III, a redesign of the previously-proposed building, now to deliver 432 units fronting South Eads Street. The 11-story building will also have 407 parking spaces below-grade.
- Crystal House IV, an 11-story, 222-unit building at 22nd and South Eads Streets. There will also be 238 spaces across two below-grade levels.
- Crystal House V, a 7-story building with 81 apartments replacing what is currently commuter surface parking on 22nd Street. An additional 83 parking spaces will be provided on two underground levels.
- Crystal House VI, a six-story, 63-unit building on 18th Street, north of Crystal House I; this building will also have another 63 parking spaces.
The application seeks to rezone the entire site as C-O Crystal City in accordance with the neighborhood's sector plan. The developer is also still committed to delivering a public park at 22nd and South Fern Street. Lessard Design is the architect on the project.
