We expect it’s going to get a little busier here in Crystal City as Amazon sets up its new headquarters up the block. The following news story from the Arlington County government covers a wide range of development activities, project details, and an overall sense of the magnitude and impact on Northern Virginia. And unless you have been in, or visited Seattle over the years, going back to the mid-1990’s when Amazon opened its doors there, you can’t really appreciate first hand what’s coming, both from a physical environmental perspective, and how Amazon’s business presence will likely shape a large part of America’s future. Two key areas we see that will dominate the world, geopolitically and commercially are Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Amazon logistics, both national (“AMZL”) and worldwide (“AGL”).
For those interested in an individual discussion on the Amazon HQ2 impacts, both in the Washington DC and NYC loci, please contact us.
