Amazon in "advanced talks" with three cities for HQ2 as info leaks

Amazon in

Instead, the company has reportedly chose to split up its massive second command post into two separate locations-with one half of HQ2 now very likely to land in our city.

At the time of writing, the Wall Street Journal has reported that Amazon may be splitting its future HQ2 across two cities, with 25,000 employees in each.

Amazon, which is expected to announce its decision as soon as this week, did not comment. That's in addition to another headquarters in the Crystal City area of Arlington, Va., confirming reports from this weekend that Amazon was eyeing the D.C. suburb.

The question of where Amazon will build its second major campus has company officials slamming leaks to news media.

Bears defensive end Khalil Mack is "unlikely" to play Sunday against the Bills, according to ESPN. Peterman was named the Bills' starter prior to Week 1 but was quickly benched in favor of Allen.

The Journal cited an anonymous source as saying that Amazon decided that dividing its second headquarters between two locations would spread the economic benefits as well as burdens - such as pressure on housing and transportation.

With just weeks left until its self-imposed deadline of year-end, Amazon is close to selecting two different cities for additional North American headquarters. In early 2018, it released its list of 20 finalists.

NY also is believed to be in the running, in a neighborhood that borders the East River overlooking Manhattan that is popular with young professionals. Insiders say these discussions have been "more detailed" than those in other parts of the Washington DC region, as well as in other candidate cities. No major announcement will come until after the midterm elections on November 6, but the selection of the final site is slated to be revealed before the end of the year.
