Washington Post Wants to Move to Franklin Square


When Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post last summer, the newspaper's building wasn't part of the deal. So the Post looked likely to move its headquarters to one of the District's fast-developing neighborhoods if it wanted a new flagship office.

But now it looks like the Post won't be going that far from its current home at 15th and L streets NW. The paper's real estate reporter, Jonathan O'Connell, reports that the Post has signed a letter of intent to take over a large building at 1301 K St. NW, on the north side of Franklin Square:
