The Virginia campus will feature 4 buildings, one of which is in a spiral shape, for about 13,000 employees

A Amazon announced the project for its second headquarters in U.S, which has four buildings located on a campus in the city of Arlington, Virginia.

One of the buildings stood out among the published renderings due to its unconventional stylea spiral glass tower covered with trees.

The building was nicknamed “Helix”, due to its shape that resembles the movement of a double helix, and must be 100 meters high. The idea for its design is similar to that of the “Spheres”, the three glass globes that are at the other Amazon headquarters in Seattle, Washington, and also have many plants around them.

At the moment, the Propeller still needs to obtain approval from local authorities to start construction. Inside, the building will have a “variety of alternative work environments” for employees and Amazon plans to offer tours to the public on weekends.

The three buildings around the Helix must have 22 floors each. Among them, retail stores, restaurants, space for food trucks, a dog race track, parking for 950 bikes and a square will be built.

Amazon says the campus will accommodate about 13,000 employees. According to The Wall Street Journal, the second headquarters project is expected to cost more than $ 2.5 billion.
