Amazon may split new headquarters between two cities

Amazon in 'advanced talks' to build new HQ near DC

Dallas and New York also still in Amazon HQ2 finalist pool report says

The Washington Post reported that Amazon was looking at real estate in Crystal City for its second headquarters.

Under the new plan, the e-commerce giant will split the workforce with 25,000 employees in each city, the WSJ report https://www.wsj.com/articles/amazon-plans-to-split-hq2-evenly-between-two-cities-1541446552?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=3 said.

Speculation is also building that an announcement about which city will get HQ2 could come this month after Tuesday's midterm elections, according to the Washington Post story.

With just weeks left until its self-imposed deadline of year-end, Amazon is close to selecting two different cities for additional North American headquarters. Washington has consistently been identified as the likely victor by various pundits, economists and think tanks, most often citing Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' ties to the area through his ownership of the Washington Post, a second home there and the growing importance of the federal government as both a customer and potential regulatory threat to Amazon.




Amazon has not confirmed either report.

Back in January, Pittsburgh was named one of the 20 potential cities being considered for HQ2.

Spokesmen for Amazon and realtor JBG Smith declined to comment for the WaPo report, as did Arlington County officials.

"And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin", Grella tweeted. Such a move could also reduce the risk that Amazon's infusion of tens of thousands of workers into a city would have disruptive effects on housing, transportation or other urban issues.
