Amazon is in "advanced talks" to open a second headquarters in the metropolitan area of Washington, D.C., according to an article by The Washington Post.
Amazon, which is headquartered in Seattle, is seriously analyzing an area known as Crystal City, a large residential and office complex in Arlington, Virginia, just south of the US capital, the newspaper reported Saturday, citing unidentified sources. . Crystal City has the Washington metro service.
The internet sales giant announced last year that it was looking to open a second location somewhere in the United States, which would bring up to 50,000 new jobs. Several state and local governments came forward for possible agreements, offering Amazon millions of tax incentives if they opened their new headquarters in their city.
