Crystal City Real Estate in Arlington VA, Condo
Very much urban, yet very much a village, Crystal City is a fascinating complex of office buildings, residential high-rises, boutiques, shops, cafes, and restaurants, all centered on the Crystal CityMetro station. All of the main structures and the features therein are linked not only by tree-lined streets above ground, but also by an extensive underground system of corridors and walkways, along which the bulk of the area’s commercial businesses and services can be found.
Crystal City is quite simply a bastion of convenience. The fact that it is one of two Metro stations between the National Airport and the Pentagon attest to this convenience, as do the 13 full-service hotels we find here. But more importantly to the thousands of people who live and work here, Crystal City is also very convenient for everyday necessities too. Two pharmacies, seven banks, 14 doctor and dentist offices, a post office and a supermarket are all part of the amenities that Crystal City Citizens can find without having to brave the summer heat or winter cold. There are even three universities offering profesional and advanced degrees through night classes and other programs. The two Metrorail lines, 20 bus routes, and 8-minute ride to Washington make it an ideal location for commuters too.
This convenience, however, has not come at the cost of friendliness – Crystal City also has a refreshing local and community-oriented feel. The walkways below Crystal City serve as the 21st-century Main Street for this community, and it’s just as common to see neighbors warmly waving hello or meeting up for coffee as it is in any other place in the world. In addition, many of the 130 Crystal City shops are independently-owned boutiques holding their own alongside national chains – adding some highly-treasured local flavor.
