Clark Construction is serving as general contractor for the first phase of new development at Amazon’s new Arlington, Virginia headquarters. The project, otherwise known as Metropolitan Park, Phases 6, 7, & 8, is located in National Landing just blocks from Reagan National Airport and less than a mile from the Pentagon. 

As part of its scope of work, Clark will demolish nearly 270,000 square feet of existing warehouse space in preparation for the construction of two, 22-story office buildings. The project encompasses nearly 2.1 million square feet of office space, as well as a 2,000-space, below-grade parking structure. The new urban campus will also include 65,000 square feet of street-level retail, new and renovated public spaces, and more than a half-mile of protected bike lanes. 

The project is designed to achieve LEED® Platinum certification and will feature green roofs, electric vehicle charging stations, and greywater exchange and stormwater heat exchange systems, among other sustainable features. Amazon has committed to powering the facility with 100% renewable energy by 2030.

The project is scheduled to be complete in Spring 2023. When finished, the new buildings are expected to support approximately half of Amazon’s future 25,000 employees in the region.
