PBS will move its headquarters within Arlington
PBS has signed a 15-year lease to move its headquarters within Arlington County’s Crystal City neighborhood, according to JBG Smith.
The public broadcasting network will occupy 1225 S. Clark Street in National Landing, the newly branded area that includes Crystal City, the eastern section of Pentagon City and the northern portion of Potomac Yard in Alexandria. National Landing is the future home of Amazon’s second headquarters.
PBS will relocate to the building by mid-2020 and occupy 120,328 square feet.
PBS’ current headquarters is located about a mile away at 2100 Crystal Drive.
The new location offers proximity to the Crystal City Metro station, Virginia Railway Express, Reagan National Airport and the future Central District retail area, which will include an Alamo Cinema Drafthouse and a specialty grocer.
PBS was represented by Paul Darr, Dale Powell and Chaise Schmidt with Cushman and Wakefield.
