Listen

Amazon unveiled the newest designs of its second headquarters in Arlington, Va., on May 12, along with the company's plans to hire nearly 2,000 more employees at the campus. 

Four details: 

1. The second phase of construction at HQ2 features proposals for a "forest plaza" at the foot of the campus' centerpiece, a 350-foot-tall tower named "The Helix." The tower features two spiraling outdoor walkways with trees and plants that intertwine and twist to the top of the structure. 

2. Amazon's $2.5 billion second headquarters will have an outdoor, woodsy theme with three 22-story office buildings and smaller retail buildings in the development flanked by woodlands and an outdoor amphitheater. 

3. Amazon said it plans to hire 1,900 new employees at HQ2 for various technical and nontechnical jobs. 

4. The new office and retail buildings will accommodate 13,000 employees.
