Northern Virginia will be the new home of Nestlé, as news has broken today that the Swiss food and drink company will move its U.S. headquarters from California to Arlington County.

The Washington Business Journal reports the company chose the location in Rosslyn over 1900 Reston Metro Plaza, which the WBJ says was another finalist for the headquarters. The Washington Post, meanwhile, reports the final decision was between the Rosslyn site and a location in Atlanta.

Maggie Parker, vice president of communications for 1900 Reston Metro Plaza owner Comstock Partners, said Nestlé representatives toured the local site before making their decision.

The 16-story 1900 Reston Metro Plaza building, now in its final stages of construction, was designed by internationally acclaimed architect Helmut Jahn. It will feature 365,000 square feet of office space adjacent to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro station.

The site that was chosen by Nestlé, 1812 N. Moore Street in Arlington County, is the tallest building in the D.C. Metro area at 35 stories. It has been vacant since construction wrapped up in late 2013.

Nestlé is spending nearly $40 million to set up in the top nine floors of the building, and it plans to employ 750 people at the site.
