Amazon in 'advanced talks' to open headquarters in Washington DC area

Amazon in 'advanced talks' to put HQ2 in Northern Virginia: report

Amazon.com's economic development director isn't happy about a Washington Post report that the company is in advanced talks with a Washington suburb about being the location for its second headquarters. "And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin", he said, in reference to the non-disclosure agreement that all finalists had to sign.

Speculation is also building that an announcement about which city will get HQ2 could come this month after Tuesday's midterm elections, according to the Washington Post story.

Over the past few months, Amazon executives have reportedly revisited several of the locations on its shortlist, including Newark, New Jersey, New York City and Chicago, according to an October report in The Wall Street Journal. Many experts have named the Washington area as a front-runner given Bezos' ownership of the Post and the company's stepped-up lobbying efforts. The retail giant is said to have held "advanced discussions" about creating a second headquarters in the city which would bring with it 50,000 new jobs. The discussions have been more detailed than those of other front runners in the area.

The Walsh administration previous year submitted the Suffolk Downs site in East Boston as the "perfect match" for Amazon's second headquarters. Amazon declined to comment on his remarks.

But stock market investors, online betting sites and corporate relocation experts have all declared northern Virginia the favorite to land the so-called HQ2.

Amazon's site selection process remains shrouded in secrecy.

He criticized the leaker who allegedly tipped off The Washington Post that Northern Virginia is the likely victor of Amazon's second headquarters competition in a highly unorthodox public rebuke. The company has said it would invest $5 billion in the new headquarters.

Amazon plans to make its announcement by the end of the year.
