    I clicked through an article on ArlNow to Amazon's HQ2 job listings and noticed that one of the things they tout is:

    "Bike-friendly access
    Space for 600 bikes in on-site bike facilities, with plans to construct a new portion of the cycle path on South Eads Street to help link Arlington’s cycling infrastructure
    ."

    Gonna need more tables at NL(née CC)CC.

    The County will be building the 2-way PBL shown at the bottom of the rendering (it's the Army Navy Drive Complete Streets project expected construction start: Spring 2022, expected constrution completion: Fall of 2024)

    The developer would be expected to build their side of the Eads Street PBL (shown on the left side of the rendering) as part of building construction, with the County building the far side (as part of the next phase of the South Eads Complete Streets project hopefully this year?)
