Crystal City Townhouses and Condos for Sale
Crystal City can be found at the southern end of Arlington County, very close to the DC border. Most of the buildings are of the high-rise variety with an added twist – they are made of glass which is how the name “Crystal City” came about.

It consists of a shopping arcade with many small shops of all types as well as a good choice of eateries. Not only that, but there are also underground walkways to enable passage from one building to another without surfacing above ground. The idea came about as the answer to bad weather.
