Work Where It’s Happening:
National Landing + Technology

Move over Silicon Valley: National Landing (Crystal City-Arlington) is the new name in technology. Home to the imminent Amazon HQ2 and the forthcoming Virginia Tech Innovation Campus, this tech-forward city is where the following big things in innovation, disruption, and research are happening. More than 55,000 workers call this thriving area home – the majority of those working in STEM fields. Here’s why District’s new National Landing offices are the right address for your business or team.

HQ2 and VT: What to Know

Virginia has long played a substantial role in Amazon’s success: we’ve been home to AWS’ web servers since 2006. From 2011-2021, AWS invested a whopping $51.9 billion in Virginia and announced a further $35b in spending to expand its data center footprint this year. So it’s no surprise that Amazon has doubled down on that investment with a commitment to building its new second headquarters in National Landing. The new HQ2 is slated to bring 25,000 jobs to the region by 2030 and also comes with a raft of community-building initiatives, including local investment in parks, local connectivity, and active spaces.

Complementing Amazon’s new HQ2 is Virginia Tech’s new Innovation Campus, which will focus on graduate-level tech education and research – leading the way in tech innovation while delivering a strong pipeline of top talent. The campus will anchor a series of tech-forward buildings and offerings that together will cement the region as a leader in computing and technology.

The upshot? These two major players will form the basis for an impressive ecosystem of innovation – and one that anyone working in tech and adjacent fields should be racing to join.

The Perks of a National Landing Address

Come for the opportunities; stay for the amenities. There’s a reason National Landing is a sought-after destination for businesses and workers alike. It’s centrally located, with unrivaled public transit and tons of options for commuting into DC, the Pentagon, or Reagan National Airport. It’s also incredibly walkable, with tons to explore on foot. Here you can live in luxury housing a quick stroll from work, explore more than 450 shops and restaurants, enjoy world-class views of the river and local landscape, and benefit from huge public and private investments into green spaces, public areas, and exciting programming that ensures that every day brings something new to the area.

Do away with the commute. National Landing brings the best in life up close so that you can make the most of every moment – while also networking with the region’s best and brightest. We know we got in on the ground floor.
