Amazon plans to split HQ2 evenly between two cities

Amazon plans to split HQ2 evenly between two cities

The Wall Street Journal also reports that some people believe Amazon may announce plans to place smaller operations in runner-up locations.

Things got more interesting when Mike Grella, Amazon's director of economic development, posted on Twitter: "Memo to the genius leaking info about Crystal City, VA as #HQ2 selection".

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. 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.

South Florida leaders said Monday that Amazon is still in discussions about bringing high-skilled workers to Miami, despite reports in other media that might indicate otherwise.

Amazon, based in Seattle, is apparently seriously considering an area known as Crystal City. The company declined to comment on the Wall Street Journal's story.

Officials in Amazon's final 20 for HQ2, including Pittsburgh, were required to sign non-disclosure agreements barring them from talking about the process to the media.

A judge ruled last week that Pittsburgh and Allegheny County must make public in 30 days the bid submitted to Amazon for HQ2.

After naming 20 finalist cities this January, Amazon plans to announce a victor city by year's end.
