Building on its vote last March to welcome Amazon to Arlington, the County Board took up the construction of Amazon’s headquarters in December. The new site will feature two office buildings with 2.1 million square feet of office space, 69,000 square feet of retail space, a child care center, a $14 million contribution for open space, and $5 million for transportation improvements.
This site plan went through the regular Arlington planning process. The Chamber supported this project,
sending a letter
before the County Board encouraging the site plan’s approval. The County Board unanimously approved the site plan; it is expected that the buildings will be ready for occupancy in 2023.
