There have been a lot of changes for local journalism institution The Washington Post since Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos bought the paper in August, but it seems that the location of the paper's headquarters might not change that dramatically. Their desired headquarters of choice is in Franklin Square, literally five blocks away from their current space on 15th and L Street NW. That's particularly interesting considering that their search for a new space had focused on other parts of the metro area. Back in August, developers had presented renderings for new locations in NoMa, Navy Yard and the Waterfront. Their search for a new (and smaller) space had also included a look at Rosslyn. But it looks like the Post has signed a letter of intent for the space three blocks away. At least the employees won't have to drastically change their commute.
