Amazon Plans To Split HQ2 Between 2 Cities

Credit CBS3

Andrew Cuomo met two weeks ago with Amazon officials in his New York City offices.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that the company was in late-stage talks with several communities including Crystal City in Virginia, Dallas, and New York City.

What qualities is Amazon seeking for HQ2?

The split headquarters will have 25,000 workers each. The fact that the jobs pay well makes the opportunity even more attractive.

HQ2 is slated to start operating in 2019, which means that Amazon will have to be ready to hit the ground running with their new headquarters. Another will be Long Island City, in the NY borough of Queens, other people said.

The e-commerce giant has spent about one year sifting through hundreds of proposals to host its additional headquarters offices and narrowed the field in January to 20 finalists.

A new report suggests that Amazon's highly sought-after HQ2 won't go to one city, but two.

Talks with the Triangle and some other cities had "cooled", according to the report. "You're not doing Crystal City, VA any favors".

Amazon, based in Seattle, is apparently seriously considering an area known as Crystal City. He also warned: "And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin".

And now it ends up Amazon may decide on creating an HQ2 and HQ3. He and Langbaum both highlighted the area's relatively cheap real estate and proximity to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

The company isn't leaving Seattle, and Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has said the new headquarters will be "a full equal" to its current home. An Amazon spokesman declined to comment.

Seattle has been one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, in part because of Amazon's growth.

Some cities got creative with their offers.

Amazon has also made it very clear that it wants tax breaks, grants and many other incentives. Some 18,000 residential units are located in the same radius, not counting some 1,600 under construction and 4,300 in the pipeline, the Crystal City BID estimates. The city touted its diverse technical talent, universal health care and welcoming immigration system.
