Virginia passed its incentive deal last month, and after a contentious county board meeting, Arlington approved its package Saturday night. So now what?
Arlington is going to take money from taxes paid on hotel, motel and other lodging stays to help Amazon grow.
The company’s head of worldwide economic development, Holly Sullivan, says Amazon employees were regularly surveying Crystal City locals about the prospect of becoming the neighborhood’s newest, and largest, occupant.
The company pledged to hire 25,000 people from around our area to work in Arlington, but an expert said the quality of the jobs is more important than the quantity. The fact that the jobs are not dependent on the federal government should boost the economy, too.
An Amazon executive was the person everyone wanted to hear from Thursday night at a panel discussion about the company’s plans for a new headquarters in Crystal City.
After Amazon announced Thursday that they would not build a planned phase of their second headquarters in New York, the chairman of the Arlington County Board said that the jobs that would have gone to Queens are not headed to the Crystal City site the sales giant has already selected.

Amazon’s announcement that it will bring 25,000 jobs to the D.C. area presents a prime opportunity (pardon the pun) for local job hunters. Here’s what is known so far about all those jobs that are coming to the newly christened “National Landing.”
Amazon’s selection of northern Virginia as the future home of half of its second headquarters is expected to have a dramatic impact on the area’s housing market as the company brings thousands of employees to the region.
