Real estate developer Vornado/Charles E. Smith is by far the largest landowner in Crystal City, a difficult position to be in these days given all the government agencies that vacated the area due to the Pentagon’s base realignment and closure effort (BRAC).
But there is a new plan in place for Crystal City as Vornado works through ideas to renovate or replace some of its existing properties there. The most dynamic was unveiled last week when the company submitted plans (PDF) to Arlington County for a 23-story office tower at what is now 1851 South Bell St.
The new building would be called 1900 Crystal Drive and become the tallest building in Crystal City. Also see a report from the blog ARLnow.com.
