ALEXANDRIA, VA – Amazon News released dazzling architectural renditions of their new Arlington headquarters calling it a spiraling vertical helix with a forest in the sky.

Designed by leading architecture firm NBBJ, the project plans to infuse nature into the urban landscape and create a unique, sustainable environment.

“Our designs create open and active spaces that aim to bring people closer to nature in an effort to further nurture innovation and creativity,” says NBBJ.

“We hope that the blend of architectural and ecological elements at PenPlace—the name of the site—will inspire those who work here and serve as an inviting place for neighbors to gather, relax, dine, and shop. We look forward to working together with the community in the coming months to bring this vision to life,” says Amazon.

The Arlington headquarters is said to be creating 25,000 jobs and investing $2.5 billion in Arlington over the next decade.
