Followups: Amazon begins work on HQ2 site
In late January, Amazon.com Inc. began clearing the site for the first of its two, 22-story HQ2 East Coast headquarters towers in Arlington, demolishing an old warehouse at Metropolitan Park near Pentagon City.
And in related news, the Crystal City Business Improvement District’s board of directors voted on Jan. 23 to change its name to the National Landing Business District, though it stressed the change would not apply to local neighborhood names. Maryland-based JBG Smith Properties, which is developing HQ2, has been advancing the National Landing moniker for the areas of Crystal City, Pentagon City and Potomac Yard that encompass the HQ2 project.
Virginia Business’s February cover story focused on Amazon’s recent efforts in Arlington to scale up for HQ2.
