· · Feb 3, 2021 · NottheBee.com

If you wanted to build a new second HQ for your $1.7T company and you were Jeff Bezos and you had literally unlimited money, what would it look like?

Well, Amazon just unveiled the design for their crazy new headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, just outside of D.C. And this is what it looks like. I mean just look at this (all pics from Amazon's design firm NBBJ):

Phase two of the company's development in Arlington, Va., calls for three 22-story office buildings andsmaller retail buildings surrounded by woodlands, an outdoor amphitheater, a dog run and parking for around 950 bicycles.

The centerpiece will be the site's fourth and tallest tower, a 350-foot structure dubbed the Helix because it will feature two spiraling outdoor walkways with trees and plants from Virginia that twist to the building's top.

...

The Helix "will be an opportunity for people to literally go on a hike in the city," said Dale Alberda, a principal at architecture firm NBBJ, which is designing the development across the river from Washington, D.C.

Plans for inside of the building also call for plenty of greenery, along with meeting space, offices and studios for artist residency programs. "You feel like you're in a lush garden in the middle of winter in D.C.," Mr. Alberda said of the interior design.

I have never seen a building that looks anything like that. It's amazing and stunning and also tbh kinda looks like a place where this dude would be camped out:

Construction is now underway.
