Amazon Employees: Welcome to National Landing in Arlington, Virginia

More than 238 cities clamored to attract the next Amazon Headquarters for over a year, and now Amazon has announced that Arlington’s own “National Landing” is the location for one of Amazon’s new headquarters.
If you’re an Amazon employee who’s about to relocate to National Landing, welcome! Arlington is positioned to become a place of great innovation — efforts are underway to build a large tech talent pipeline that includes robust STEM education, ongoing education for teachers, after-school programs, and more.
The National Landing area includes a variety of high-rise condos; restaurants and bars; retail shopping; and lots of outdoor parks for exercise and recreation.

Where is National Landing?

The first thing you should know as a newcomer to National Landing is that it’s a name Amazon invented. What Amazon calls “National Landing” incorporates parts of two Arlington neighborhoods: Crystal City and Pentagon City. The area also includes Potomac Yard in the nearby city of Alexandria, Virginia.
National Landing is less than 3 miles away from downtown Washington, D.C. It’ll be served by the Crystal City and the upcoming Potomac Yard Metro stations; both stations provide access to the D.C.
Metro’s Blue and Yellow Lines. A new pedestrian bridge will connect National Landing to Ronald Reagan National Airport. Route 1 passes through National Landing, and improvements are planned for safely and accessibly crossing that route on foot.
The Commonwealth of Virginia will be investing $195 million in National Landing’s transportation infrastructure to help handle the influx of Amazon HQ2 employees.

Things to Do in National Landing

The parks around Crystal City, Pentagon City, and Potomac Yard are especially great.
The Potomac River Trail runs all the way from Crystal City to Old Town Alexandria, which makes it great for walking, running, and biking.
Long Bridge Park offers over 30 acres of open space and recreation, complete with three full-size lighted fields for football, lacrosse, and soccer. A raised walkway overlooks the sports fields and the Potomac River.
Gravelly Point Park is a great picnic spot for watching planes take off and land. This is more exciting than relaxing on days when the air traffic passes close to the ground.

Crystal City Water Park does not have water slides — it’s a park very close to the Crystal City Metro with a mesmerizing waterfall wall fountain. Take a brown bag lunch and listen to the sound of the water rushing for a break from the city.

Finding the right neighborhood

North Arlington’s Orange Line Corridor stretching from Ballston to Rosslyn, as well as its neighboring Lyon Park, Lyon Village and Cherrydale neighborhoods, is naturally the most sought after sector in Arlington. Clarendon is the biggest draw currently, with a bustling nightlife and shopping center that attracts people from all over the DC area. Ballston too is about to boom, with the construction of the new Ballston Quarter almost complete. Being relatively recent in construction, this entire corridor represents a modern, new living space: walkable, high-density and close to everything, but without the rigid compactness that you might find in DC and other older cities, it is an ideal iteration of the hybrid cities of the future – not quite urban, yet without the dullness of suburbia.
