Construction Making Progress at 1900 Crystal Drive near Amazon’s HQ2 in Arlington

Verity’s urban mixed-use, multifamily construction management project at 1900 Crystal Drive in National Landing is making progress near Amazon’s HQ2 building. Our team toured the property which consists of a South Tower with 28 stories (shown above on left) and a North Tower with 27 stories (shown above on right).


This project replaces a vacant office building at 1851 S Bell Street and 1900 Crystal Drive. When finished, the project will consist of 808 multifamily units and nearly 45,000-sf of retail. The 28-story south building will consist of 471 residential units above 16,800-sf of retail, while the 27-story north building will contain 337 residential units above 19,300-sf of retail.


A woonerf, a walkable shared-use street, will separate the two buildings with an additional 8,900-sf of space and retail lining the plaza.


Located half a block from the Crystal City Metro and adjacent to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, 1900 Crystal Drive is scheduled to be completed first quarter of 2024.


Thank you to Verity 1900 Crystal Drive Project Managers, Billy Frye and John Ganssle, for hosting the tour.
