Amazon will reportedly split HQ2 between two cities
And one of the locations is Crystal City in Arlington Virginia right next to the Pentagon. How Amazon plans on squeezing 50,000 employees into Arlington will be interesting to see. Traffic around the area is horrendous (hellish) already.
The update follows a pair of weekend reports naming the Crystal City section of Arlington, Virginia, and other cities as front runners in the tightening race for Amazon's second headquarters. It's been more than a year since the company issued a call for proposals.
In addition to confirming that a deal is in the works with Crystal City, The New York Times on Monday reported that the Long Island City neighborhood of New York City is nearing an agreement with the tech giant. The paper cited two people briefed on the discussions about the Queens neighborhood.
Thankfully I only go into Washington DC once a month or so. I can't wait until construction begins.
