Northrop HQ Decision Nears

Northrop Grumman is days away from announcing the location of its new corporate headquarters, the Washington Post reports this morning.

At a press conference with Northrop CEO Wes Bush and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell last month, Bush said the company was negotiating with building owners in Arlington and Falls Church. Those sites were believed to be a new development in Ballston or the Fairview Park office complex in Falls Church.

The Washington Business Journal, meanwhile, is now reporting that Northrop is thinking about buying a new office building somewhere “inside the Beltway or [in] Tysons Corner.”

It would move to the Fairview complex now as a temporary measure, while the new office is constructed, WBJ says.

Wherever the company decides to move to, expect it to be within Virginia’s eighth congressional district, we’re told.
