DC Suburb Likely To Get Second Amazon Headquarters

DC Suburb Likely To Get Second Amazon Headquarters

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon may be contemplating spitting the coveted second headquarters, dubbed HQ2, between two different metros. The WSJ says Amazon will do a split of its second headquarters across two cities.

Under the plan to split HQ2 each city would get 25,000 jobs, the report said. The paper earlier reported that New York City, Dallas, and Crystal City, Virginia, were among the finalists for what Amazon has called its HQ2. Washington has consistently been identified as the likely victor by various pundits, economists and think tanks, most often citing Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' ties to the area through his ownership of the Washington Post, a second home there and the growing importance of the federal government as both a customer and potential regulatory threat to Amazon. A recent report from CBRE estimated that more than 160,000 D-FW residents work in the tech sector, with an average wage of nearly $97,000. 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.
