Crystal City Breaks Ground on New Entryway

Crystal City Breaks Ground on New Entryway

From Jordan Stinnett:

 

Crystal City, VA – The Crystal City Business Improvement District (BID), in partnership with Gould Property Company and BPG Property, is set to break ground on a large-scale lighting and landscape enhancement that will create an enticing southern gateway experience. The 30,000 square foot parcel of land, owned by Gould, is located at the intersection of Route 1 and Crystal Drive and presents the first impression of Crystal City onto nearly 50,000 drivers who arrive to the area each day. The project adds new turf, 28 trees and beautiful LED lighting features to the façade of the southernmost building in Crystal City, which is owned by BPG. The gateway should be completed by Thanksgiving.
