On today’s show we are continuing our series on Amazon and the implications of the company’s seemingly unstoppable growth. Yesterday we looked at Long Island city, an area of the Queens borough of NYC. Today, we talking about how Amazon also announced that Northern Virginia would be the site of their technology hub expansion. Specifically, Crystal City, a small compact development sandwiched between Reagan National Airport and Highway US 1 is the chosen site. This area has seen major tenants including the department of defence leave the area in the past decade. But employees will not live in Crystal City. The surrounding areas of Arlington, Reston, will be the beneficiaries of this new growth.
