Amazon will open two office buildings and a public park this coming summer. ARLnow reported the news on Wednesday after speaking with an Amazon spokesperson

The spokesperson said that the pace of construction at Metropolitan Park -- which consists of two new office towers and a public park -- will allow the buildings to start welcoming employees this summer.

Slated for Pen Place near S Fern Street and 12th Street S (map), Amazon's HQ2 will ultimately include over three million square feet of office space across three buildings with ground-floor retail, another 24,000 square feet of retail across three "pavilion" buildings, and a nearly 350 foot-tall corkscrew-shaped office amenity building christened The Helix. There will also be over two acres of open space and nearly 2,000 below-grade parking spaces.
