National Landing is planned for smart growth.

Citizens of Alexandria and Arlington both rely on citizen-approved growth plans for the areas that comprise National Landing. These plans call for transit-oriented, walkable, mixed-use urban environments, and they envision considerably more growth than HQ2 represents.

In Alexandria, Small Area Development Plans were developed in partnership with the community and the City. These plans are used when proposing development for any growth, and they represented the foundation of our effort to recruit this project. As we move forward, there will be opportunities for more community feedback.

In Arlington, the approved 10-year Capital Improvement Plan for Transportation, specific neighborhood sector plans, and the approved site and phased development plans for projects like Metropolitan Park and Pen Place have guided the proposals to Amazon. These plans incorporate new green spaces and parks; enable a new transportation system connecting Pentagon City, Crystal City, Alexandria, and Columbia Pike; and require adherence to sustainable green building principles.
