Crystal City's Metro station

Crystal City's Metro station

Crystal City in northern Virginia will house one of Amazon’s headquarters on the East Coast.

After a nationwide bidding process that drew intense speculation, Crystal City beat out over 200 jurisdictions to land the deal. New York City was also named in the decision, which would split the company’s second headquarters in two. The deal promised $5 billion in construction projects and as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs, though the breakdown between the two cities remains unclear.

What does the decision mean for Crystal City, and the Washington area at large? Kojo discusses the implications for Washingtonians across the region.
