Amazon in 'Advanced Talks' to Put HQ2 in Northern Virginia Town

Citing unnamed "public and private sector officials", the Post reported that a major landlord in Crystal City has taken buildings off the leasing market in anticipation of Amazon, which has said it plans to open an initial 500,000-square-foot office in 2019, and government officials are reportedly discussing how to make a public announcement in November after the midterm elections.

An economic development director at Inc. isn't happy about a Washington Post report that the e-commerce giant is in advanced talks with a Washington suburb about being the location for its second headquarters.

The decision process has been going on since at least the end of 2017 when Amazon essentially launched a contest that sparked competition among cities across the world, including in Seattle and other areas across Washington state.

The city was one the only Canadian municipality to be included on Amazon's short list last January and Mayor John Tory has been a frequent and vocal advocate for the bid.

Amazon is reportedly at advanced stages of opening its second headquarters in Northern Virginia.

Two people close to the process said that if Crystal City was selected, Amazon was likely to move an initial group of several hundred employees into 1851 South Bell Street or 1770 Crystal Drive. At stake: the online retail giant's second North American headquarters and 50,000 jobs. Crystal City is served by Washington's Metro subway system.

The Walsh administration previous year submitted the Suffolk Downs site in East Boston as the "perfect match" for Amazon's second headquarters. "And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin", he said, referring to the nondisclosure agreements that Amazon required its finalists to sign. Amazon declined to comment on his remarks.

Amazon's site selection process remains shrouded in secrecy.
