Re­port: Ama­zon in talks to build new HQ near DC

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NATION & WORLD -

Re­tail gi­ant Ama­zon Inc. is in “ad­vanced talks” to open its sec­ond head­quar­ters in the Wash­ing­ton, D.C., metropoli­tan area, The Wash­ing­ton Post re­ported Satur­day.

Ama­zon, based in Seat­tle, is ap­par­ently se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing an area known as Crys­tal City. It’s a large res­i­den­tial and of­fice com­plex in Ar­ling­ton, Vir­ginia, just south of Wash­ing­ton, the Post said, cit­ing uniden­ti­fied sources.

Ama­zon an­nounced last year that the re­tail gi­ant was look­ing to open a sec­ond head­quar­ters some­where in North Amer­ica, bring­ing with it as many as 50,000 new jobs. Sev­eral state and lo­cal gov­ern­ments threw their hats in the ring, of­fer­ing Ama­zon mil­lions in tax in­cen­tives if they opened their new head­quar­ters in their city.
