HQ2 Today

By 2030, Amazon's headquarters in Arlington is expected to occupy at least 4 million SF of office space. While construction continues on their 2.1 million SF headquarters in the Pentagon City neighborhood, the company has signed leases for nearly 900,000 SF in adjacent Crystal City since their initial landing in June 2019.

Arlington Headquarters Construction Update

Construction began in early 2020 on the 2.1 million SF mixed-use project in Pentagon City, which includes two 22-story towers that will house Amazon's Arlington headquarters along with 65,000 SF of ground floor retail. Additionally, the project will renovate the adjacent Metropolitan Park into a vibrant public open space.

As of late December 2020, the construction team had successfully erected all five tower cranes and completed excavation at the site. Ongoing operations include the pouring of large concrete mat slabs and utility operations.
