Amazon Plans to Spread Second Headquarters Across Two Cities

Amazon Exec Rips `Leaking&apos to Bezos&apos Post on Headquarters

Amazon.com Inc is planning to split its second headquarters evenly between two locations rather than picking one city, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, citing a person familiar with the matter. Two HQ2 projects also ensure that Seattle remains Amazon's unequalled headquarters.

Because Amazon is reportedly in "advanced talks" does not mean the deal is certain.

Mayor Hogsett says he expects Amazon's decision soon after the midterm elections Tuesday so that the five billion dollar bombshell doesn't change any political races for the victor or the loser locations.

Boston made the top 20 list of contenders to be the new home for Amazon's HQ2, and some considered it among the top choices due to the region's universities, tech economy, and skilled workforce.

The Steelers have one other game that could still be flexed out of its current time slot - at Oakland Dec. 9. Four other games have been protected by CBS, meaning they can not be flexed out of their current time slot.

The journal reports Amazon is discussing incentives with government officials in Crystal City and speaking with a real estate investment trust, which owns property in the city.

Amazon first announced the search for a second home in September of 2017, and 238 cities from across the USA and Canada all put in their bid to attract the online retail giant and its shiny new $5 billion headquarters and associated 50,000 jobs. Lending credence to the Crystal City speculation was a tweet from Mike Grella, Amazon's director of economic development, who lashed out at the leakers, saying they weren't "doing Crystal City, VA any favors".

The rumored front-runner location in Northern Virginia is in Crystal City.

Bob Swindell, head of the Greater South Florida Chamber in Broward, said he would not comment on new reports because, "We want to remain on great terms with them by adhering to our agreement as they navigate through their site selection process", he said.
