Amazon announced it has chosen Arlington County to establish a major new headquarters.
Amazon will locate in National Landing, a newly branded neighborhood encompassing parts of Pentagon City and Crystal City in Arlington and Potomac Yard in Alexandria.
Amazon will invest more than $2 billion to establish its new headquarters, which will create at least 25,000 high-wage jobs in the next 12 years.
It's not always cold hard cash that seals the deal. Our approach was strategic and intentionally performance-based.
