Jones Lang LaSalle Markets Multifamily High-Rise for Sale in Crystal City Submarket

The Bennington is 348-unit high-rise located just seconds from The Pentagon

WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 7, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle today announced the firm’s Capital Markets experts have been hired to market The Bennington for sale in the Crystal City submarket of Washington, D.C.  The 19-story, 348-unit high-rise is located just seconds from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. 

Leading the Jones Lang LaSalle team on this transaction are Managing Directors Al Cissel and Scott Melnick.  Executive Vice President Shawn McDonald is providing financing expertise.

“The Bennington is a well-positioned, strong-performing asset located in the heart of Crystal City in Arlington County, which is one of the top ten wealthiest counties in the country,” said Melnick.  “Over the past three years, the property’s undergone a $5.3 million renovation to upgrade interiors and common areas.  That, coupled with strong rent growth in this thriving apartment market, will make this extremely appealing to investors.”
