In addition to a record-setting Q4 earnings call, Amazon gave us a first look at their second headquarters planned for Arlington, Virginia. Called “The Helix,” HQ2 is essentially a 350-foot-tall spiraling vertical forest, complete with outdoor walkways lined with trees and plants. Aside from being a workplace for their employees, the company plans on opening it up to the public a few weekends each month.
This corporate complex won’t be an eyesore either, as NBBJ, the architectural firm behind the design, aims to blend the structure in with the neighborhood, complete with a 20,000-square-foot community center, amphitheater, bicycle lanes and 2.5 acres of green space. If all goes as planned, construction on “The Helix” as well as the surrounding buildings, will begin in 2022, with completion set for 2025.
