Amazon Begins Occupancy at 1770 Crystal Drive in Northern Virginia’s National Landing

Developer JBG Smith has completed construction on 1770 Crystal Drive, a 273,000-square-foot office building in Metro D.C.’s National Landing. The entire 259,000 square-foot office portion of the 14-story building is now leased by Amazon as part of its HQ2 expansion to Northern Virginia.

Amazon’s offices at 1770 Crystal Drive are part of the initial 537,000 square feet of existing National Landing office space the company agreed to lease from JBG SMITH in November 2018.  Since then, Amazon has continued to grow its National Landing leased footprint, which now encompasses 857,000 square feet across five buildings.

“The return to productive use of 1770 Crystal Drive represents yet another significant milestone in National Landing’s ongoing transformation into a vibrant 18-hour neighborhood,” said Matt Kelly, CEO at JBG Smith. “We are thrilled to partner with Amazon and accommodate its growing presence in the region as we continue to make progress on its modern new headquarters.”
