Amazon’s new headquarters HQ2 promises to be the future of corporate architecture with its innovative building design and daring style choices.
We’re going to talk about glass and a $2.5 billion steel tower. And it looks like a big palace, which is very visible.
Being the host of Amazon’s construction projects, people working in this company get many benefits including job growth and increased number of visitors.
Keeping these benefits in mind, Amazon had over 230 offers from various cities and states across the country since its early 2017 announcement.
As the logo was chosen and planned to be the new site for Amazon’s latest and biggest venture in recent days, this plan was opposed by the public.
According to XR spokesperson:-
However, its construction was quickly shelved amid overwhelming backlash from the local community as the damage was done to the Amazon.
According to an XR spokesperson, the attack on criticism over alleged acts of employee abuse and this action is intended to draw attention to Amazon’s exploitative and environmentally destructive business practices.
Following these protests, disregarding workers’ rights and Amazon’s presence in the name of company profits, Amazon issued a statement saying that several state and local politicians made it up.
Clearly they are annoyed by our presence and will not work with us to build the relationship we need to move forward.

Will the new headquarters bring in more than 25000 jobs?
This would result in significant long-term progress for the site it would have chosen by some estimation since York.
The new headquarters will bring more than 25,000 jobs and transform the neighborhood into the next big tech hub of plant life and nature. The New York resolution was passed. The next option was Arlington West Virginia and that’s what Amazon has decided.
Visit Arlington Virginia with the new Amazon HQ2 corporate headquarters in Crystal City, is an extension of the company’s headquarters in Seattle Washington instead of a replacement for the existing one.
This headquarters is going to act as the center attraction for all Amazon owned and rented buildings in the vicinity.
This new headquarters, also known as Penn Palace, is going to have over 2.8 million square feet of office space with a double helix glass structure at its center.
Is this a growing trend among tech companies?
We need to create unique experiences, so I expect it to come alive with human activities.
Rather than being the main attraction and a functional building, it is going to be more enjoyable with a focus on biophilia and increasing productivity through nature and healthy mental health practices.
This is a growing trend among tech companies and has been used at Apple Park and even Amazon. Amazon has hired NNBBJ as the lead architect for the Biodome at its Seattle headquarters.
Dale Alberta, principal of this daring project, said that we are doing a lot on the site to connect people to nature, creating designs for the logo, which make it easier for the people who work.
The design aims to incorporate both nature and science, but with Helix we really take that to the extreme of what we’re creating.
Easy Points :-
- There will be an indoor atrium and a series of gardens where people can walk and do their little work.
- Amazon has emphasized that unlike regular tech companies, which have an aura of exclusivity and feel far from the pen of the general public.
- A lot of attention has also been paid to making Amazon Pen Palace eco-friendly.
- Amazon claims the building will run on 100% renewable energy from a solar farm located 200 miles away in Pennsylvania County South Virginia to further reduce energy consumption.
- The entire structure is designed to use as much sunlight as possible.
- This is to reduce the need for any artificial lighting, as well as adopt a natural system of ventilation.
