"Join the Momentum/National Landing" logotype

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.

Parks & Green Space

Sustainability

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.
