Developer Archstone is moving ahead with plans to bring a third phase of residential development to their Crystal House condo and apartment complex in Arlington's Crystal City. Currently comprised of two 12-story towers with 400 units apiece, Archstone intends to add 252 new "lofts" to the development, bringing the total of on-site residential housing up to 1,075 units.
Located at 2000 South Eads Street, the developer is adding to their extensive portfolio in the Crystal City area. Once completed, the 270,000-square foot addition will neighbor the other two so-named buildings on South Eads Street, built 40 years ago as the first apartment-condo highrises in the neighborhood and the first to use the name "Crystal", generating a trend the other developers followed and that eventually lent its name to the area.
Though Archstone Vice President Daryl South tells DCMud that the developer “expects to have building permits within two months,” he declined to comment on when the project might begin construction. Torti Gallas will design the project. Archstone is one of the largest investors in apartment buildings nationwide.
