Crystal City Metro, Arlington Virginia Homes For Sale

The Crystal City neighborhood in Arlington has brought enormous job growth and sweeping development projects expected to have a ripple effect across the entire D.C. Metro region.

Crystal City has found new fame thanks to news of Amazon’s HQ2 announcement. Along with Pentagon City and Potomac Yard, Crystal City is part of the area local planners have nicknamed National Landing. This neighborhood is a great place to live and work.

Housing

Crystal City offers multiple large buildings and a variety of houses within easy reach.

One notable condo building is The Eclipse, located at 3600 and 3650 Glebe Rd South in Arlington. The Eclipse has 11 stories and 221 units spread across East and West wings. It offers everything from studios to two bed two bath units with lots of amenities.

Those looking for larger homes can find them just beyond the neighborhood’s edge. Aurora Highlands, Arlington Ridge, Arlington Views, and Arlandria offer houses with an easy commute to Crystal City. Attached and detached homes in these areas can be found starting at $400k with new construction homes costing as much as $2 million dollars or more.

Entertainment

You’ll find over 130 restaurants, bars, and coffee shops in the Crystal City area. A five-minute walk allows you to choose from 20 places to eat. Some of our favorite restaurants are: the Skydome, Clark Street Grill, Jaleo, Neramitra Thai, and Legal Sea Foods.

Be aware that “Crystal City Water Park” has a confusing name: it’s a gorgeous fountain, not a family destination with water slides. This sculpture park is a relaxing place to take a break, get some work done outdoors, or hangout with friends. After dark, romantic lighting makes it the perfect date night venue.

Miles of jogging and biking trails connect Crystal City to nearby scenic and significant places. The Potomac River Trail and Mt. Vernon Trails can take you to the National Mall in D.C. The trails also lead to scenic Old Town Alexandria; and reach west toward nature via Four Mile Run & the W&OD trail.

If you like outdoor sports, Virginia Highlands Park offers diamond fields and fully-lighted tennis courts; practice walls; basketball courts and a volleyball court. For wintertime ice skating, visit Pentagon Row Outdoor Ice Skating.

Commuting

Crystal City has access to great transportation options whether you walk, drive, bike, or ride the Metro. It’s achieved a Walk Score of 84, meaning that you can accomplish almost all errands on foot here. The area has excellent bike lanes and offers convenient access to transit.

The Crystal City and Pentagon City D.C. Metro stations are located here, both connecting to the Blue and Yellow train lines. Car owners will appreciate Crystal City’s plentiful parking options, and those who travel often for work will appreciate Crystal City’s proximity to DCA, also known by its much longer name Ronald Reagan National Airport.

The Commonwealth of Virginia is investing $195 million in transportation infrastructure, including creating additional entrances to Crystal City’s Metro stations and improving Route 1.

General Livability

Crystal City is home to over 23,000 smart, busy professionals in the private and government sectors, as well as a rising startup scene. Matched with low crime and great schools like Arlington Science Focus Elementary School, Crystal City could be your perfect neighborhood.

Things to Do in Crystal City

The parks around Crystal City, Pentagon City, and Potomac Yard are especially great.

The Potomac River Trail runs all the way form Crystal City to Old Town Alexandria, which makes it great for walking, running, and biking.

Long Bridge Park offers over 30 acres of open space and recreation, complete with three full-size lighted fields for football, lacrosse, and soccer. A raised walkway overlooks the sports fields and the Potomac River.

Gravelly Point Park is a great picnic spot for watching planes take off and land. This is more exciting than relaxing on days when the air traffic passes close to the ground.

Crystal City Water Park does not have water slides — it’s a park very close to the Crystal City Metro with a mesmerizing waterfall wall fountain. Take a brown bag lunch and listen to the sound of the water rushing for a break from the city.

 

If you’d like to call Crystal City your new home, get in touch with The Keri Shull Team today. They have access to more off-market properties than any other team in town, which means more housing options for you.
