Open spaces, mixed-use retail and towers to transform 6.5 acres of National Landing
Two new 22-story towers will emerge in Metropolitan Park as part of the first phase of Amazon HQ2. The buildings, open spaces and retail development adds up to 6.5 acres and were approved by the Arlington County Board this month, according to its announcement. The project also includes $20 million in an affordable housing contribution. The Board has discretion over the use of the contribution and it can receive it in the form of new affordable units built around the neighborhood.
