Located just across the river from Washington, DC, National Landing is the capital region’s premier mixed-use urban community and the largest walkable downtown in Virginia.
Encompassing Crystal City, the eastern part of Pentagon City, and the northern portion of Potomac Yard, National Landing is defined by its dynamic blend of offices, apartments, restaurants, shops, parks, hotels, cultural venues, bike paths, walking trails, live events, and other amenities.
National Landing enjoys ready access to one of the nation’s deepest pools of young, highly-educated, and tech-savvy workers, an abundant supply of affordable office space, diverse housing options, and an unparalleled transportation network.
Businesses, residents, and workers will also benefit from billions of dollars in additional private and public investments, highlighted by the ongoing construction of a new headquarters for Amazon that will accommodate 25,000-37,850 workers and Virginia Tech’s forthcoming Innovation Campus.
Where We Are
National Landing is easily reached from throughout DC and communities in Virginia and Maryland. Mass transit options abound, with access to Metro, commuter rail (VRE), and several bus routes, as well as an extensive roadway network. For more active alternatives, National Landing offers dedicated bike lanes and multiple walking trails. Reagan National Airport is literally a short stroll away, offering direct connections to nearly 100 cities.

Who We Are
As a company born, bred, and exclusively operating in the DC region, JBG SMITH consistently produces the type of forward-thinking projects that have helped transform and enrich neighborhoods throughout the Capital, including the Ballpark District, Navy Yard, and Shaw.
We are utilizing this same approach, which combines enlightened placemaking and authentic architecture, throughout our National Landing portfolio.
By collaborating with our partners in government, local business, and civic associations, we are creating a model for 21st century urban neighborhoods. With incredible places to live and work, along with world-class transportation options, lively streetscapes, and an abundance of inviting parks and open spaces, we are making National Landing a great place to call your home, establish your business, or for an exciting visit.
Inspired Placemaking is in JBG SMITH’s DNA and at the core of everything we do. In National Landing, we are creating a more dynamic, walkable, and human-scale neighborhood animated by parks, public plazas, live events, markets, bike paths, and a diverse array of shops, restaurants, entertainment venues, and other lifestyle amenities.
Real estate is central to urban development. It consumes physical resources and is a significant source of operational and embodied carbon emissions. Equally, it is central to the goal of creating an environmentally sustainable, resilient, and socially inclusive future. This is what it means to truly pursue sustainable development.
JBG SMITH is dedicated to producing a positive impact on our local community and far beyond. We are committed to achieving high standards for sustainability, air quality, and energy conservation in each of our projects. We also support a cleaner and healthier environment by embracing transit-oriented development, walkability, and alternative modes of transportation.
