McMullan Selected for “Central District” Development


McMullan has been selected to join Gensler’s team as the structural engineer for JBG Smith’s “Central District” development in Crystal City, Virginia (Arlington County). 

In the first phase, a new 74,000 SF, street facing retail area will be built. This area will be anchored by a multi-screen theater and will also include a smaller-format, full-service grocery store. In addition, a two-story, 16,000 SF retail building will be built at the corner of 18th Street S. and Crystal Drive next to a proposed second Crystal City Metro entrance. JBG Smith is looking to start construction in the fall and have the theater open by the 2020 springtime.

McMullan Principal Colleen Nasta, PE is leading the McMullan team of structural engineers with McMullan Principal Douglas E. Bond, PE, SE providing quality control and assurance.
