Amazon reportedly planning to split HQ2 between two cities

DC Suburb Likely To Get Second Amazon Headquarters

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, e-commerce giant Amazon may split its second headquarters between two cities. Each new office will bring 25,000 new jobs to whichever cities Amazon chooses. Amazon has not made a final decision on which two cities would be chosen, the report said.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday, citing a person familiar with the matter, that Amazon planned to split its second headquarters staff evenly between two places instead of picking a single site for what it calls HQ2.

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects who have been detained in Saudi Arabia , so they can be put on trial in Turkey. Analysts say Saudi authorities appear to be trying to defuse the crisis by shoring up support from within the royal family.


Over the weekend, The Washington Post reported that Amazon was in talks to build a new headquarters in the Crystal City area of Virginia.

MA economic development secretary Jay Ash said Saturday his office has not been in recent contact with Amazon. Although talks are still advancing with representatives in NY and Dallas, this could be to prime a backup location in case Crystal City falls through.

Brexit: Irish rule out time-limited Brexit backstop
Brexit is fraying Britain's relationship with Ireland, the country's prime minister Leo Varadkar has warned. He said that an all-UK customs union would not breach the EU's red lines.


Mike Grella, Amazon's director of Economic Development Public Policy tweeted Saturday that leaks pointing toward Crystal City as the HQ2 selection wasn't doing the city any favors.

Boston made the top 20 list of contenders to be the new home for Amazon's HQ2, and some considered it among the top choices due to the region's universities, tech economy, and skilled workforce. "And stop treating the (nondisclosure agreement) you signed like a used napkin". Such a move could also reduce the risk that Amazon's infusion of tens of thousands of workers into a city would have disruptive effects on housing, transportation or other urban issues. Both the city and county plan to appeal that decision.
