Welcome to
National Landing

National Landing is the newly defined interconnected and walkable neighborhood that encompasses Crystal City, the eastern portion of Pentagon City and the northern portion of Potomac Yard in Northern Virginia. Situated across the Potomac River from Washington, DC, National Landing is one of the region’s best-located urban communities. It is defined by its central and easily accessible location, its adjacency to Reagan National Airport, and its existing mixed-use environment, including offices, apartments and hotels.

National Landing enjoys ready access to a deep pool of talented, highly educated and tech-savvy workers, an abundant supply of affordable office space, diverse housing options, an unparalleled transportation network, and plentiful green space.

Following an exhaustive HQ2 search, Amazon selected JBG SMITH as its partner to house and develop a headquarters at National Landing. JBG SMITH owns 6.2 million square feet of existing office, 2,850 multifamily units, and controls 6.9 million square feet of additional development opportunities in National Landing, excluding Amazon’s proposed land purchase.

Strategic Vision
for the Future

Since mid-2017, JBG SMITH has been focused on a comprehensive plan to reposition National Landing through a broad array of placemaking strategies. These include the delivery of new residential and office development, locally sourced amenity retail and thoughtful improvements to the streetscape, sidewalks, parks and other outdoor gathering spaces.

As a result of Amazon’s selection of National Landing, JBG SMITH intends to accelerate the planning, entitlement, and development of several projects. Through innovative design and the integration of multiple uses, JBG SMITH’s investments will transform National Landing.

The entire NOVA region will also benefit from important infrastructure projects, including the construction of additional entrances to the Metro stations at Crystal City and Potomac Yard, improvements to Richmond Highway (Route One), a connector pedestrian bridge from National Landing to Reagan National Airport, and a transitway expansion supporting Pentagon City, Crystal City and Potomac Yard.

Urban Living

National Landing boasts an eclectic mix of shops and restaurants throughout the district and is only a short Metro ride away from the neighborhoods of Washington DC, including the Wharf and the Ballpark, as well as neighboring Old Town Alexandria.

In addition, JBG SMITH will develop Central District Retail, an approximately 109,000-gross-square-foot entertainment and shopping destination anchored by a 49,000-square-foot Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, a specialty grocer, restaurants, bars and other experiential offerings. Once complete, it will serve as the retail heart of National Landing and the foundation of anchor amenities for future phases of placemaking development.

Nearly 400,000 rental apartments, condos, townhouses and houses are located within a five-mile radius of National Landing in Northern Virginia and Washington DC, with approximately 40,000 more in the pipeline.
