Arlington Submits Amazon Application, Reveals Few Details

While many other local jurisdictions have revealed their pitch for Amazon’s planned second headquarters, Arlington is keeping its proposal close to the vest.

“I can tell you that yes, our proposal was submitted, but we’re not releasing any details of specific sites or anything due to competitiveness reasons,” an Arlington Economic Development spokeswoman said in response to an inquiry from ARLnow.com.

Generally speaking, there are two Metro-accessible corridors for Amazon to choose from in Arlington: the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor and the Crystal City-Pentagon City corridor. In an informal poll asking where Amazon should build its new headquarters, readers gave a slight edge to the R-B corridor.

Amazon is expected to announce the winning city for its “HQ2” at some point in 2018.
