Transformation is coming to Crystal City and Pentagon City. By 2040, Crystal City and Pentagon City are estimated to add a total of 8,500 more residents, and 35,500 more jobs. As this growth happens, County already has plans under way to make this area of the County even more vibrant and walkable. How will it happen? The answer lies in Arlington’s commitment to “smart growth” planning – transit-oriented development that keeps high-density mixed-use development along our transit corridors, while preserving residential neighborhoods. This approach to planning and building community has been the backbone of Arlington’s success for more than four decades.
The Crystal Drive Two-Way Conversion (Phase 1 and 2) has been completed. On October 3, the Arlington County Board celebrated the new transportation improvements, including the installation of the new HAWK traffic signal. These projects begin to establish the street network needed to support future development and transit improvements.
