“Think Big, and Be Creative” – Amazon
National Landing has firmly established itself as an international center for innovation and technology. Amazon’s commitment to build its second headquarters campus in the district serves as both a validation and the impetus for National Landing’s continued growth as an incubator for creative, 21st-century businesses.
Amazon’s major commitment — and the public-private partnerships that were established as a result — will spur billions of dollars worth of transportation enhancements, modern offices, diverse housing options and enhanced greenspaces, as well as a dynamic mix of shops, restaurants, entertainment and other community-oriented retail.
A series of bold transportation projects will greatly expand National Landing’s capacity while also creating one of the country’s most seamless, efficient and multi-modal transit networks. These planned and ongoing upgrades include a slew of high-profile projects to increase connectivity. Read more about next-generation mobility in the neighborhood.
Amazon has already begun recruiting its National Landing team from among the capital region’s highly educated, tech-focused workforce, who are now located in a number of existing spaces as construction progresses on its new headquarter buildings.
The first phase of Amazon’s development, located at the intersection of 15th and Eads Streets, will feature two sustainably designed office towers with dynamic neighborhood retail at street level. In keeping with its commitment to the entire National Landing community, Amazon is incorporating acres of landscaped public park space, over a half mile of protected bike lanes and other community amenities into the project, which is slated to open in 2023.
