Green

Crystal City is a transit-oriented, and therefore, inherently green area. In an effort to leverage and market Crystal City’s existing green assets, as well as to further enhance the area’s environmentally-conscious competitive-edge, the Crystal City BID launched, Crystal Green. This program focuses on building relationships with key partners to minimize the cumulative environmental impact of the neighborhood’s businesses and residences by focusing on energy efficiency, environmental quality, and waste minimization.
