The big news for Arlington, VA is that the e-commerce colossus, Amazon, has chosen this Washington DC suburb to host its east coast headquarters. More accurately, the enormous project known as Amazon HQ2 has been divided into two parts--one to be run out of Arlington, VA and the other to be run out of the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens, NY. Officially, the Northern Virginia HQ2 will be part of what has now been branded National Landing: a sort of Franken-hood comprised of Crystal City as well as parts of Pentagon City and Alexandria’s Potomac Yard.

Not only is Arlington County prime for Amazon, boasting--perhaps for the first time ever--a 20% vacancy rate with regard to commercial real estate. JBG

Early drafts of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act slashed many of the tax incentives for homeownership. For generations of American families, owning a home has been a cornerstone of economic stability and wealth creation. During the tax bill revision process, the key question the National Association of Realtors lobbyists pushed lawmakers on was, “Do we want a country of renters or a do we want a country where people own their own home?”

Most of the changes to the tax law changes relating to DMV real estate market were either very incremental or left unchanged. The mortgage interest deduction is still allowed, except the new cap is $750K instead of $1 million. Real estate investors still retain investment deductions. The capital gains tax exclusion remains

Rock Creek Park has quite a storied history. American Indians were some of the first to use its quarried rock outcroppings to make tools, fished in the creek and hunted in its woods. Later, in the 1600 to 1700s, European Americans began claiming the land and Georgetown was soon chartered at the mouth of Rock Creek. Once tobacco farming drained the soil of its worth, farmers switched to wheat and corn production. The most successful gristmill in the park is Peirce Mill, built along Rock Creek to convert grain to flour.

In 1890, Rock Creek Park was named one of the first federally managed parks. From then until now, many Washingtonians head to the park to enjoy some green space and all of what the park has to offer as far as recreational activities.
