Retail Highlight at Skyland Town Center: Trek

Retail within your community is an amenity that keeps on giving. Whether you have a grocery store, restaurants, or other services such as banks and pharmacies, it’s always such an added convenience to have these types of retain options at your fingertips. Fortunately, at Crest, we have all of this and more all within the community just steps from your front door! Today we are highlighting Trek, a globally known name in biking who has recently opened a retail location at the all-new Skyland Town Center.


Trek At A Glance:

Trek began in 1976, when a pair of determined guys set out to make the best bicycles the world had ever seen. Their vision was grounded in unswerving principles: the product would be of the highest quality craftsmanship and it would bring the joy of cycling to a broader audience. They offer kids bikes-adult, even electric bikes which are increasing in popularity!

Trek In Our Community:

Washington DC has become an increasingly bike-friendly city in recent years. With the increase in population density, cost of parking, and cost of insurance, bikes and electric bikes are quickly becoming preferred means of travel within the city. Many of the roads in DC also have bike lanes which makes it easier for bikers to share the road.

Crest features an on site controlled-access bike storage as an amenity for your convenience

With this in mind, having a retail location within the Crest community that not only sells all kinds of bikes, but also offers professional repair services, is a valuable thing to have. As a resident of Crest, we have a controlled-access bike room just for our residents within the community, meaning you have a place outside of the apartment to easily store your bike. Trek’s Skyland Town Center location is also looking at other avenues of community engagement in the future such as community bike rides and the like. They even go the extra mile and provide some great recommendations for sightseeing bike rides through Washington DC!

For more information about Skyland Town Center’s Trek location, you can reach out to Keith Jackson, Store Manager, at, check out the Skyland retail store’s website, or stop by the store. Trek is open Tuesday-Friday from 11am-7pm and on Saturdays from 10am-6pm. Once you check out Trek’s selection, head over to Crest and find your perfect next apartment!

Two Bedroom E: Crest’s Featured Floor Plan

Two Bedroom apartments can be hard to choose based on whether you prefer living space versus bedroom space. Fortunately at Crest, the only hard choice you’ll have with our two bedrooms will be choosing your favorite! Between the generous amount of square footage that translated into well distributed space, excellent storage, and outdoor space and all of the perks of living above the all new Skyland Town Center, it’s not hard to tell why we favor the Two Bedroom E.

Space and Value

When considering a two bedroom apartment, having space to accommodate your needs is essential. Are you someone who likes to entertain or someone who enjoys cooking? Or, do you prefer more space in the bedroom for that king sized bed? Whatever your needs, the Two Bedroom E floor plan has you covered. With 1039 well-utilized square feet, you’re sure to have plenty of room to host your friends and family to try your culinary creations without sacrificing square footage in the bedrooms. Another great advantage of living at Crest is that you’re sure to get the best economy for space around.

Storage and Outdoor Space

As with any apartment, adequate storage space is key. The two bedroom E floor plan includes all of the premium storage features such as massive walk in closets as well as a full laundry closet with folding table and storage above. The kitchen in this floor plan is designed to appeal to your inner chef, offering ample countertop space as well as cabinet storage for your kitchen appliances, dishes, and any other items you may need to store. Aside from the storage, this floor plan also features great outdoor space. Whether you’re looking to dine ‘al fresco’ or are just looking to check the weather before choosing something from your (did we say massive?) walk-in closet, this private outdoor space is a great addition to this already excellent layout.

Location, Location, Location!


We could go on forever about all of the physical aspects we love about the two bedroom E, but it, like all of our apartments at Crest, gives you access to the community’s state-of-the-art amenity package. From a two-level membership-quality fitness center to a courtyard pool with grilling stations to our dog park and dog washing station, Crest covers all of the bases. Crest’s location also gives you access to another valuable feature: you’re just steps from 16 (and counting!) retailers at the brand-new Skyland Town Center. Whether you need groceries from Lidl, a quick bite from Roaming Rooster, or your morning coffee from Starbucks, you have access to it all.
