Amazon Web Services has acquired three office properties in Sterling, Virginia. According to BizJournal, the company paid up to $30.8 million to real estate firm Clarke-Hook Corp. This will be AWS’ third low-rise office property acquisition in Sterling, Virginia, in 2022. The buildings are located at 45965, 45969, and 45975 Nokes Blvd, Loudoun County.
