Amazon's second headquarters planned for northern Virginia received an important approval on Saturday.
The Arlington County board voted to approve Amazon’s PenPlace development (map), the final phase of the company's second headquarters in the neighborhood now coined National Landing.
Amazon's HQ2 proposal includes 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.
The approval now allows the project to move to the permitting phase, a little over a year after plans were initially unveiled to the public. Construction on the project is slated to start later this year with at least the first phase of the development scheduled to open to the public in 2026.
