JBG Smith Properties (NYSE: JBGS) is looking to revamp, rebrand and add more leasable space to its Crystal Drive office campus, including one building partly leased and occupied by Amazon.com Inc. as part of HQ2.
The new name for the entire office and residential complex, long known as Crystal Park: The Parks at National Landing.
The most significant changes are planned for 2345 Crystal Drive, where Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) leases more than 47,000 square feet and operates a shuttle connecting HQ2 employees with Amazon Web Services’ East Coast hub in Herndon. There, JBG Smith proposes a new lower-level facade and conversion of 18,327 square feet into leasable office or retail space. The space is currently used as a combination of hallway, circulation, retail and building management services.
