Bud Perrone, a spokesman for JBG Smith, Crystal City's top developer, declined to comment.

Shortly after the Post published its story, Mike Grella, Amazon's economic development director posted on Twitter, "Memo to the genius leaking info about Crystal City, VA as #HQ2 selection".

In another tweet about an hour earlier, Grella criticized an earlier story in the Post - owned by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos - for speculating about the possible second headquarters location based on flight patterns of Bezos' jet.

Gargan said Amazon remains an "active project" in North Carolina, which means much of the details regarding what the state is offering to lure the company remain under wraps.

The discussions add speculation that the site in Virginia, that many considered the favorite for what Amazon is promising as 50,000 high-paying jobs, in honing in on the prize. He's the owner of The Washington Post and owns a home in the area.

Citing unnamed "public and private sector officials", the Post reported that a major landlord in Crystal City has taken buildings off the leasing market in anticipation of Amazon, which has said it plans to open an initial 500,000-square-foot office in 2019, and government officials are reportedly discussing how to make a public announcement in November after the midterm elections.

Amazon is expected to make its decision before the end of the year. "And stop treating the NDA (nondisclosure agreement) you signed like a used napkin".

Amazon says it plans to make $5 billion in capital investments alone in the city it chooses, and that its headquarters injected an additional $38 billion into the local economy in Seattle, generating an additional $1.40 for every dollar the company spent. "The search team has earned his trust and the highest use of his time isn't looking at vacant buildings and land- he has a company to run -#Amazon".
