Arlington’s located just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., which means it’s just steps away from the decision-makers of the nation’s capital. As home to the Pentagon, Arlington’s also the key location for companies looking to work with DoD and related agencies. After all, all of the top 10 global aerospace and defense companies have a presence in the D.C. region – seven of those are right here in Arlington. It means we’re a true epicenter of innovation – a place where groundbreaking research happens and technology is born. 

What does that mean for your company? It means that in Arlington, you’ll have access to a smart workforce. A REALLY smart workforce. More than 70% of our working population has at least a bachelor’s degree. Almost 40% have advanced degrees – that’s three times the national average. It also means you’ll have some of the world’s top companies as your neighbors. Amazon, Nestle USA, Lidl, Boeing – they’ve all chosen Arlington.
