Amazon may decide to create two HQ2 locations, instead of just one

Dallas and New York also still in Amazon HQ2 finalist pool report says

Dallas and New York also still in Amazon HQ2 finalist pool report says

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.

Mayor Hogsett says he expects Amazon's decision soon after the midterm elections Tuesday so that the five billion dollar bombshell doesn't change any political races for the victor or the loser locations. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported that Amazon may be contemplating spitting the coveted second headquarters, dubbed HQ2, between two different metros.

The decision to split the new facility is being driven by concerns over its ability to recruit a sufficient amount of tech talent, according to the Journal, which cited a person familiar with the company's plans.

Amazon's plans, the Journal reported, would place about 25,000 workers in each city, a move created to give the company a greater ability to attract talented workers.

Amazon's shortlist of potential second headquarter sites appeared to get smaller over the weekend.

He declined to comment on other speculative reports.

Because Amazon is reportedly in "advanced talks" does not mean the deal is certain. Shortly after the Post published its story, Mike Grella, Amazon's economic development director posted on Twitter, "Memo to the genius leaking info about Crystal City, VA as #HQ2 selection". 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.

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. Both the city and county plan to appeal that decision.
