Amazon in Arlington
Brings Long-term Community Investment and Improvement
Amazon chose Arlington County to establish a major new headquarters.
Amazon will locate in parts of Pentagon City and Crystal City in Arlington and Potomac Yard in Alexandria.
The company will invest more than $2 billion to establish its new headquarters, which will create at least 25,000 high-wage jobs over the next 12 years.
- On Feb. 2, Amazon with their development consultants, submitted a new site plan application for the Pen Place block in Pentagon City which will initiate a pubic review process of the proposal.
- On Dec. 14, the County Board approved a plan to transform 6.2 acres of Pentagon City’s Metropolitan Park from abandoned 1950s-era warehouses and surface parking into the first phase of Amazon’s new headquarters.
