Amazon plans to split HQ2 between two cities

Amazon will choose not one, but two cities to split its new headquarters, an unnamed source told the Wall Street Journal.

Columbus has spent more than a year on the list of potential cities to house Amazon’s second headquarters. When only one city could win the prize, Amazon promised a $5 billion investment and 50,000 jobs.

Amazon hasn’t yet made any official announcements regarding the move, but the online giant has been in advanced discussions with several cities, including Crystal City in Virginia, Dallas and New York City. A decision could come as early as this week, the Wall Street Journal reports.
