O’Connell, Jonathan. “Inside the Wild Ride That Landed The Washington Post on K Street.” Washington Post. The Washington Post, 4 Sept. 2015. Web. 01 Oct. 2016. <https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/digger/wp/2015/09/04/inside-the-wild-ride-that-landed-the-washington-post-on-k-street/>.
Jonathan O’Connell provides a detailed look into the chaotic move of the Washington Post headquarters. After the company was acquired by Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, and the land owned by the previous owner was sold off, the newspaper was on a high-stakes hunt for a suitable office space in or around the District. The new building would require enough square footage to comfortably house its employees, a low price tag, and an accessible location. After narrowing down the options, Bezos and the real estate team settled on the K Street location that it occupies today.
This piece is useful as it has substantive information on the reason for the current location of the Washington Post and how it fits into the downtown D.C. area.
