Crystal City Walkabout

Crystal City is an urban village developed largely by the Charles E. Smith Co. Named for a chandelier in the lobby of an early development, the area’s trademark is a remarkable network of commercial passageways located entirely underground. Originally built to conform to a 1960’s “superblock” concept, Crystal City is being redesigned to give it an urban feel, with restaurants and retail at street level.
