Amazon will divide its much-anticipated new headquarters between Crystal City in Northern Virginia and Long Island City in Queens, New York, a source with knowledge of the plan confirmed to POLITICO on Monday night.
The move follows a search that spanned more than a year and prompted local governments across North America to scramble to offer tax breaks and other incentives to win the company’s favor.
Amazon’s split decision means the selected locations can expect to share as many as 50,000 jobs and roughly $5 billion in investment.
The news was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.
