Washington Post Reveals Designs For Potential New HQ

It's been a big news day for (or rather, concerning) the Washington Post. WaPo Publisher and CEO Katharine Weymouth announced at 4:30 p.m. that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos would buy the paper (and several of the smaller publications) for $250 million. However, the paper may soon see a more physical change — in location. The Post has been seeking a new headquarters for at least the better part of the year, hoping to vacate its 15th Street office space and find a smaller option. Minutes before the sale announcement, WaPo also released renderings that it had received from six different developers. Three of the potential new sites are located in NoMa (one down the street from the new NPR building) and three at Capitol Riverfront. The article's author Jonathan O'Connell also clarified via Twitter that only the the paper would be moving into a new location and that the Post Company (which itself is NOT being completely bought out by Bezos) will still own the location on 15th Street NW. The potential new renderings can be found here.
