Redevelopment of 1770 Crystal Drive for Sole Office Tenant
Owner: JBG Smith
CM: Axias

Establishing a culture of true partnering from the outset, the team overcame many challenges, including ambitious floor-by-floor delivery dates stipulated in the tenant lease, budget constraints, tenant design changes, a change in mechanical contractors, constructing over an occupied underground mall corridor and Metro tunnel, and of course, COVID-19.  Constructed in the 1970s, 1770 Crystal Drive has been reinvigorated as the first building of Amazon’s East Coast headquarters development in Arlington’s Crystal City.
