This 30,000 square foot parcel of land, owned by Gould Property Company, is located at the intersection of Route 1 and Crystal Drive and presents the first impression of Crystal City onto nearly 50,000 drivers that arrive to the area on a daily basis. The Crystal City BID partnered with award-winning designers at Gensler to develop a plan that communicates the excitement and vibrancy of Crystal City. The project adds new turf, 28 trees, and beautiful LED lighting features laid out in an interesting and attractive geometric pattern that continues up the façade of the southernmost building in Crystal City, which is owned by BPG Property.
With Virginia Department of Transportation and Arlington County permits in hand, the Crystal City BID contracted Rand Construction to implement the plan.
