Arlington officials clear way for Amazon HQ

The Arlington Country Board approved the financial package for Amazon hub in northern Virginia, media reported.

Late last year Amazon picked sites in Arlington and New York City for its so-called second headquarters but later abandoned plans to build in New York following the opposition from a number of state and local elected officials.

The five-member board in Arlington voted in support of local incentives to transform Crystal City into an Amazon HQ that will occupy at least 4 million square feet of office space and bring $2.5 billion in economic investment.
