Amazon Plans To Split HQ2 Between 2 Cities

Amazon Plans To Split HQ2 Between 2 Cities

After months spent deliberating which of the 20 finalist cities will host its second headquarters, Amazon appears to have made a decision. But Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett says the Circle City is still in the running.

Two new 25,000-person offices remain massive undertakings for the company though less attention-grabbing than the year-long hype has suggested.

Citing an anonymous source familiar with Amazon's plans, the highly-sought-after second headquarters will go to two cities in order to recruit enough tech talent, according the report.

Originally, Amazon said it planned to hire 50,000 employees at its second headquarters, on par with the 45,000 or so working at the company's original Seattle home. The Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon was in final talks with New York, Dallas and Crystal City, Virginia, which is just outside of Washington.

MA economic development secretary Jay Ash said Saturday his office has not been in recent contact with Amazon. Dallas-Fort Worth ranked No. 12.

Northern Virginia was always a favored contender to receive HQ2 owing to its proximity to Washington D.C.

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.

"You could look to Seattle and see that it's had great positive consequences, but it also probably has had some unintended ones that maybe aren't as well received", SunTrust Robinson Humphrey Inc. real-estate analyst Michael Lewis said.
