Arlington County, Virginia, has a lot to offer. With its close approximately to Washington, D.C., walkability to restaurants, retail, and nightlife, and great schools, it’s no wonder that tech startups and other companies have been moving into the city.
Yet, there is one thing that is holding Arlington back. According to economic development officials, developers, attorneys, and business owners at the recent Bisnow conference, it’s Arlington County’s lengthy permitting process. Developers, brokers, and restauranters all agree that the county’s lengthy permitting process is a deterrent for companies looking to do business in Arlington. One anecdote shared by developer JBG Smith mentioned that it took two years for the county to approve JBG Smith’s beer garden project.
So, what’s the solution for developers, restauranteurs, and business owners still eyeing Arlington for their business?
