Pentagon City, located in Arlington Va., includes the Pentagon which may be one of the world's largest office buildings, but shopping also helped to put Pentagon City on the map.
In November 2018 when Amazon announced it selected Northern Virginia for its HQ2, National Landing was a big reason for that decision. Pentagon City is the "North District" of National Landing, offering up retail, shops, distinctive homes, apartments with easy access to transit, and of course, walking distance to Crystal City, also in Arlington.
Pentagon City is a dining and shopping destination with perhaps the finest collection of shops, cafes, and restaurants inside the beltway. Fashion Centre at Pentagon City has more than 150 shops and restaurants; Pentagon Row has 300,000 square feet of retail space and 502 residential units.Rounding out the neighborhood are single-family homes, high-rise apartments, commercial buildings, and more than 3,400 residential units and 665 luxury hotel rooms.
The expansive Virginia Highlands Park provides plenty of green space, complete with playgrounds, basketball courts, tennis courts, baseball diamonds, walking trails and a soccer field. Located just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., and within walking distance of Pentagon City Metro station — one of the busiest stations in the system — this neighborhood is a good example of Arlington's transit-oriented development and successful smart growth policies.
