Below is a list of ongoing construction in the Crystal City BID area.

1770 + 1550 Crystal Dr Update: In May 2019, JBG SMITH began the renovation of 1550 Crystal Drive to make way for an improved lobby and entry experience, as well as new street-facing retail. As a result, the 1550 Crystal Drive main lobby entrance on Crystal Drive will be closed. For your safety, the pedestrian access along the west side of Crystal Drive between 18th Street and 15th Street will also be closed. In addition, the south side of 15th Street will be closed to pedestrian traffic until Q3 2020. Morton's is closed until winter 2021 for construction. 

1770 + 1550 Crystal Dr Garage Construction: In February 2019, JBG SMITH began garage work below the future Central District Retail development. As a result, sections of the garage under 1550 Crystal Drive and 1770 Crystal Drive will be closed off and fencing will be installed on all levels to enclose and secure safe work areas.

2231 Crystal Drive Garage Renovation: Renovations to the parking garage at 2231 Crystal Drive began in March 2020 and are expected to last approximately 38 weeks. This is a large, full scale renovation including both structural and cosmetic upgrades.  There will be two phases for the entire project. Each phase is expected to last four to five months.

Clark Street Demolition: The contractor has completed the structural concrete work and concrete barrier construction. The remaining work includes bringing in fill material for the green spaces, top soil, grass pavers, guardrails, and flat work such as concrete entrances, curb and gutter, and sidewalk paver replacement.

Dominion Energy is scheduled to energize the new traffic cabinet at the end of December. This will allow the contractor to complete the replacement of the traffic signals and pedestrian signals at the Route 1 and 20th Street intersection.

Metropolitan Park: Construction on the first phase of HQ2 began in Winter 2020. If you have questions or concerns about the project you can email metpark678@clarkconstruction.com
