Amazon.com is downplaying a Washington Post report that the corporation is in advanced talks with Northern Virginia officials. However, the company is not exactly denying the report's accuracy.
Amazon Director of Economic Development- Global Public Policy Mike Grella tweeted that the leaked word of the Amazon interest in Crystal City, VA. as its new home is not doing Crystal City, VA. any favors. "So he warned:" And the NDA signed like a used napkin. "
The Seattle content and e-commerce giant has been looking for a city for its second year since 2017, and has been created. The WaPo said discussions with Crystal City were quick and easy. Amazon would move employees there, which would make it great. The report cited "people close to the process."
Any announcement would come after midterm elections, the report said, adding that Amazon may be having similar discussions with other cities.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who owns the WaPo, told a New York conference earlier this week that "Ultimately the decision will be made with intuition after gathering and studying a lot of data – for a decision like that, as far as I know, the best way to make it is to collect as much data as you can, you can always make that decision with your heart. "
Spokesmen for Amazon and Realtor JBG Smith declined to comment for the WaPo report, as did Arlington County officials.
Amazon initially chose $ 5 billion in capital investments alone in the city it chooses.
