Weymouth gave D.C. mayor advance notice of possible Washington Post headquarters relocation

Washington Post Publisher Katharine Weymouth called D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D) this week to give him a heads up in advance of her Friday announcement that the company was considering selling its headquarters and relocating.

Gray spokesman Pedro Ribeiro said the mayor appreciated the call and instructed Victor Hoskins, deputy mayor for planning and economic development, to begin considering how best to accommodate The Washington Post Co. and make sure the company remains in the District. (The company is the parent of Capital Business).

Ribeiro said the discussions were preliminary.

“I don’t know what [the company] wants yet. They have just started initial conversations,” he said.

The D.C. government has invested heavily in developing new projects in NoMa, Mount Vernon Square and Southwest Waterfront and officials say all of those locations will likely be considered when officials present ideas to the Post Co.

“There are so many possible places where they could go, with vibrant neighborhoods and amenities than there were even a few years ago,” Ribeiro said. “There’s no shortage of great places to put you guys.”
