Heading south on the DC metro’s blue line from Rosslyn heading towards Alexandria are the urban villages of Pentagon City and Crystal City.

Pentagon City has been built up quite a bit in the past few years.  Immediately above the Pentagon City station is The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City offers world class shopping and is anchored with a Nordstrom and Macy’s.  Just outside the mall is more shopping and a Harris Teeter grocery store at Pentagon Row!

Condo options in Pentagon City include Pentagon Ridge, The Cavendish, Ridge House, Horizon House and The Representative.  The arguably best located properties in Pentagon City are the townhomes in Southampton, which is a short stone’s throw from the Metro station and the adjacent Costco.

On stop down from Pentagon City is Crystal City, which is an area that is typically known as the area on route one that most people pass through on the way to Reagan National Airport. Crystal City is going through a tremendous renaissance and should be considered a great place for residential Real Estate investment.  The Crystal City Business Improvement District has done a great job bringing loads of nationally acclaimed restaurants to Crystal City.  That being said, Crystal City’s own restaurant row is home to some long-time Arlington, VA favorites such as The Crystal City Sports Pub.

Condominium options in Crystal City include Bella Vista, Crystal Gateway and Crystal Park.  Just south of Crystal City is The Eclipse, which is located just to the north of Four Mile Run, which divides Arlington, Virginia from its sister to the south, Alexandria.
