Amazon is set to deliver two new towers to Pentagon City after getting zoning approval Saturday from the Arlington County Board.
The 2.1-million-square foot project will occupy 6.2 acres in Pentagon City’s Metropolitan Park. The development will replace vacant warehouses and parking lots.
The plans call for two 22-ystory towers along South Eads Street, as well as a new public park. Amazon is also contributing $20 million to the county’s affordable housing fund.
“This project is extraordinary in many respects,” Arlington County Board Chair Christian Dorsey said in a statement. “It will bring us significantly closer to fulfilling the community’s vision of Pentagon City as an urban neighborhood with a better balance of office, residential and retail development, more and better public spaces, and more and better access for pedestrians and cyclists.”
