Northrop Grumman Makes Its Choice

After months and months of persuasion, flirtation and secrecy, aerospace giant Northrop Grumman has selected a site just inside the Beltway on Arlington Boulevard to plop its headquarters.

Faint hopes that the 300 high-rolling execs would move to a spot served by Metro turned out to be a pipe dream. The location is in the curl of a vast interchange but close to neither rail lines nor a community for the headquarters to serve.

It will be across the “street” from a Raytheon complex, though. Maybe they can have mixers.
