Apple Eyes Fairfax County As Arlington Lands Amazon

There may be even more upside for Fairfax County from Arlington and Alexandria’s Amazon HQ2 win.

With Amazon set to bring tens of thousands of jobs to the Crystal City area, Apple is now looking elsewhere for a large East Coast outpost.

The Washington Post reported in May that Apple was looking at sites in Crystal City, Loudoun County and the planned Scotts Run development in Tysons. The would-be Apple campus would house 20,000 employees, according to the Post.

But Arlington and Crystal City are now out of the running, according to Arlington Economic Development Director Victor Hoskins.

Though the Loudoun option remains, we’re told that Apple is looking “seriously” at Fairfax County.

Gerry Gordon, Fairfax’s top economic development official, declined to comment on the Apple news. Via a spokesman, Gordon told Tysons Reporter that it is his policy not to talk about company moves until it’s made official.
