Our impact in the HQ2 region

When we announced that our second headquarters would be coming to Arlington, Virginia, and our plan to bring 25,000 jobs to the area, we made a commitment to be among the most trusted companies in the region. Learn more about Amazon’s HQ2 and our commitment to the Greater Capital Region.

Amazon is the No. 1 corporate philanthropist in the Greater Capital region.

We’re proud to be bringing more economic opportunity to the region—with more than 8,000 corporate and tech jobs assigned to Met Park in the first phase of HQ2, and over 2 million square feet of new commercial space, including 50,000 square feet for 14 local small businesses. We’ve also made more than $161 million in donations and cash grants to local nonprofits and charitable organizations, and created over 2.5 acres of public park space.
