An Amazon executive took a swipe at the Washington Post report on Saturday.

The company's director of economic development had a sharp rebuke after reports over the weekend said the retailer is planning to build the second headquarters in Crystal City, Va.

Under the new plan, the e-commerce giant will split the workforce with 25,000 employees in each city, the WSJ report https://www.wsj.com/articles/amazon-plans-to-split-hq2-evenly-between-two-cities-1541446552?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=3 said.

There are 20 cities in the running for HQ2, though officials in many of them say they haven't heard from Amazon in months.

Amazon estimates HQ2 will bring more than $5 billion in construction investments and as many as 50,000 jobs to the city amidst decades of ongoing investment in the surrounding community.

Amazon announced plans for a second headquarters in September 2017, saying that the company was growing faster than it could hire in its hometown Seattle.

The game also extended this quirky, yet quite remarkable, record of James Milner . "That's a really nice idea". The Swiss worldwide was prominent as Arsenal drew 1-1 with Liverpool , moving to a 14-game unbeaten streak.


Amazon, based in Seattle, is apparently seriously considering an area known as Crystal City.

The company also apparently is concerned about the impact of quickly adding tens of thousands of workers have on housing prices and transportation infrastructure in any individual city.

The decision is expected to be announced as early as this week. Now it appears that Amazon has chosen the winning city-but it's two cities instead of one.

"I am doing everything I can".

Splitting HQ2 would also raise questions about the current tax incentive packages Amazon has been offered on the premise of the larger office.

Northern Virginia was always a favored contender to receive HQ2 owing to its proximity to Washington D.C. Since wrapping up visits with cities in the spring, Amazon has been nearly silent on the search. It's the only region with three finalists on the short list, and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post and has a home in the nation's capital.
