Published on February 14, 2019

Arlington County Board Chair Christian Dorsey today issued the following statement in response to Amazon's announcement that it has dropped its plans to build a headquarters in New York City:

"After speaking with an Amazon representative earlier today, we have confirmed that we are moving forward as planned with Amazon's upcoming headquarters in Arlington — nothing has changed.

"Our current schedule is for the County Board to consider the performance incentive agreement in March, which includes 25,000 new jobs and 4 million square feet of office space.  Arlington, and the entire region, are still honored that Amazon recognized this region as a top area for businesses and workforce talent and selected us as a site for its headquarters expansion."
