I think the Fridays at the Fountains is a great example of how popular CC can be after “core hours”. The combination of live music, outdoor seating, and alcohol creates an atmosphere that encourages people to stay and linger. The new outdoor seating is a great start in making use of previously empty or unattractive locations

I would also add that high-end clothing retail is not necessarily needed, given Pentagon City is nearby. I hope we prioritize retail options that are actually filling a gap in our neighborhood!

As as current resident in Crystal City, we lack any true innovative dining options, with far too much fast casual and regional/national chains. I hope that this opportunity is used to bring in a destination restaurant with an up-and-coming local chef (NOT Jose Andres or a widespread food group!), ideally with an international cuisine and also serving brunch (we don't have any good options currently). A full-service grocery store, bakery or bagel shop, pet store/shop, bicycle repair shops, and a local non-chain coffee shop are also sorely needed, as none are currently in close walking proximity (perhaps some of these could be added to the underground mall, which is on the decline). Thanks for soliciting public input!

Crystal City needs more life to it. It's very business oriented but needs to offer more to it's inhabitants in regards to nightlight and things to do. Possibly more community events, festivals, make it a destination that is not only pleasant to live in but brings others to it.

The movie theater currently at Potomac Yard is slated to be torn down as part of the development plan for that area.

I would love an outdoor beer garden and music venue. A outdoor play area for kids may be another nice feature.
