Northrop Grumman Goes Non-Metro-Friendly


File this one in the “unsurprising but still pathetic” category. As the superb blog, Greater Greater Washington writes, “Northrop Grumman chose a suburban office park for its new corporate headquarters, rather than a Metro-friendly location…At least all their employees used to Los Angeles traffic will feel right at home.”

Hey, here’s an idea: Northrop Grumman should give free bottled water – Bob McDonnell’s latest assault on the environment – to every employee who drives a gas guzzler to work everyday and contributes to our region’s horrendous traffic, air pollution, etc. Just to emphasize how anti-environment (and “business friendly,” of course) they are, you know?

    It isn’t all that far from the Dunn-Loring Metro stop…might NG offer shuttles to and from the metro…

    Next to the NRO in Westfields would have made sense to a defense contractor. They could have built new but had a 2+ year delay in moving in.

    Too bad the Sallie Mae relocation wasn’t announced earlier, that building might have worked for them.

    Where would you have had them go to buy a building of this size?
