Reports: Amazon to Split New Headquarters
And the winner is…? Following a year-long contest that prompted cities across North America to court the online retailer with tax breaks, ad campaigns and publicity stunts, Amazon is reportedly planning to divide its second headquarters between two cities, with around 25,000 workers in each. Sources say the surprise decision is aimed at recruiting the best talent while also relieving potential pressure on local transit, housing and municipal services. The finalists are thought to include Dallas, New York City and Crystal City, Virginia, while Amazon’s decision could come as soon as this week.
