Crystal City

The SPAWAR Corporate Liaison Office provides support for Space & Naval Warfare Systems Command employees conducting business in the Arlington, Virginia and Washington D.C. area. The location in Crystal Park 5 is convenient to hotels in the Crystal City area as well as other U.S. Government agencies and offices located there as well.

Crystal City is an award-winning, mixed-use center with as much commercial and residential development as many medium-sized cities. Bordered to the east and south by the Potomac River and Ronald Reagan National Airport, Crystal City enjoys a monumental view of the nation's capital, the Potomac and the Pentagon. It is located just five miles from Washington's museums and monuments, and a short walk to the Metro. Crystal City's business core of offices, hotels, retail and residential buildings is connected by landscaped parks and an extensive underground shopping and entertainment complex. Its impressive skyline harbors an array of high-tech research and consulting firms serving private sector and government clients.

Crystal City has long been known as a series of sterile office towers, with a few popular restaurants and hidden retail shops scattered about. The Crystal City Shops is an unconventional collection of over 130 shops, restaurants and cafes lined along charming walkways at the heart of Crystal City, just across the Potomac River from downtown Washington, DC. The Crystal City area is 1/2 mile from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, convenient for both business and leisure travelers alike.

Arlington Transit [ART] operates a continuous loop in Crystal City, replacing the Crystal City Trolley and the Crystal Loop. Bicycle Commuting to Crystal City, Pentagon City and the Pentagon is easy, thanks to the Crystal City Connector tunnel and trail, which provide a direct link between Crystal City and the Mount Vernon Trail.
