1400 Crystal Drive

Location: Arlington, VA
Project Size: 280,000 SF

Formerly Jefferson Plaza I, this 13-story office building in Crystal City, VA, contains approximately 310,000 gross square feet. Additionally, there are three below-grade garage levels with 690 parking spaces. Built in 1968, the building had no significant renovations and provided a great opportunity to recycle and reposition an existing Class B structure into a state-of-the-art Class A office building. The building was stripped to its structural frame. The existing structure horizontally extends along the east, adding approximately 23,000 gross square feet over 13 floors. This enhanced the interior planning, expanding the number of corner offices and improved the overall building mass. A full-height curtain wall glass permits natural daylighting within the work environment and better views of the Potomac River and the Washington, DC, skyline.
