I was really hoping it wouldn't end up here. Our public transportation system is held together with paper clips and chewing gum as is, not to mention the effect this will have on the already ridiculous housing costs in northern Virginia. We had been looking at moving down to northern Virginia since it's more convenient for both of our jobs than living in Maryland is, but that whole thing is throwing a wrench into the process.
That's one of the pitfalls of living near the capital.

On that note, the D.C one was made for one reason: political lobbying. Bezos already owns the Washington Post and putting this HQ there will allow him to conveniently have an army of workers to be a 20 minute drive away from Washington that he can use to pressure Capitol Hill to do what he wants.

I used to work in Alexandria and almost had to move there. The home prices were astronomical back in 2014, I can't imagine what they will look like now.
