As surprising as it may sound, the first phase of HQ2 still needs to be approved by Arlington County. The first phase will include two buildings at the Metro Park on Eads St, in Crystal City. The company wants to have large ground level retail spaces, in the two 22 floor towers, they are planning on building. The first meeting of the approval process will be held on July 15. This will be one of several meetings that will include discussions on all facets of the construction and its effect on the community. Residents are welcome to attend.
