According to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal, tech giant Amazon will be splitting a project involving a second headquarters between two different cities.
The report cites that this is apparently being done in order to allow the company to recruit enough workers. A total of 25,000 are expected to be hired in each location.
In terms of which cities will host the headquarters, that announcement has not yet been made by Amazon; however, the company is reportedly said to be in discussions with the following locations:
*Crystal City, Virginia
*New York City, New York
The Washington Post has previously reported that “advanced talks” were taking place between Amazon and Crystal City, which included mentions about how Amazon’s announcement may actually be made. The report cited “people close to the process” itself.
However, they later concluded that New York City and Northern Virginia will be the homes for Amazon.com Inc.’s second and third headquarters, according to people familiar with the matter, ending a more than yearlong public contest that started with 238 candidates and ended with a surprise split of its so-called HQ2.
