Amazon May Split HQ2 Location Between 2 Cities

Amazon laid out a variety of requirements for the location of its new headquarters, including proximity to an worldwide airport.

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.

After more than a year of fielding corporate subsidy offers and humiliating gestures from desperate elected officials, Amazon is reportedly nearing a final decision for its widely-hyped second headquarters.

The Wall Street Journal also reports that some people believe Amazon may announce plans to place smaller operations in runner-up locations. Although talks are still advancing with representatives in NY and Dallas, this could be to prime a backup location in case Crystal City falls through. "And stop treating the [non-disclosure agreement] you signed like a used napkin", Amazon Economic Development Director Mike Grella said in the tweet. When the company announced a list of 20 top contenders in January, it included both Washington as well as Montgomery County, Maryland, which is just north of D.C.

Site selection specialists are in talks with several cities in case other deals fall through. "You can see what it's done to the cost of living in Seattle". If Amazon buys within a year of the closing day, KDC will pay 33 percent of the profit.

Opening two offices instead of one second headquarters is a departure from what Amazon originally said it had planned.

The Post looked at where Bezos has flown recently on his private jet. Bezos owns the Washington Post and a home in the prominent Kalorama neighborhood. The aging NY subway system has several issues the city is working to fix.
