Amazon reportedly plans to split new headquarters between NYC and Virginia

The paper cited unknown sources.

Large spheres take shape in front of an existing Amazon building, behind, as new construction continues across the street in Seattle.

Some locations sought to stand out with stunts, but Amazon emphasized it wanted dollars and cents incentives, like tax breaks and grants.

Toronto was on the list as one of the candidates for Amazon's second North American headquarters.

Northern Virginia was always a favored contender to receive HQ2 owing to its proximity to Washington D.C. He declined to comment on other speculative reports. Research Triangle Park is on the final 20 metros being considered for the project.

WRAL TechWire had been told the same information.

Could the news be good for the Triangle's chances? Nearly 240 municipalities responded, trying to lure the tech giant with marketing gimmicks, promises of new transit lines and, as proposals trickled out, billions in tax incentives. The Journal reported over the weekend that Amazon was in "late-state discussions" with Crystal City in Virginia, Dallas and New York City. Amazon also said it was looking for communities that offer a "stable and business-friendly" environment and access to mass transit.

The Journal described the decision as a "surprise".

But now this new Journal report says Amazon has made a very surprising decision. The mayor's office has been leading tours of the area since April and convened officials from several New York City universities to outline ways to meet Amazon's needs, this person said.

The final announcement on which two cities are involved could come this week. The newspaper, which is owned by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, reported that the company is exploring which properties in Crystal City could be available and when.

An Amazon executive in charge of economic development reacted in anger to the leak, saying a non-disclosure agreement had been violated. If this report comes to fruition and HQ2 is indeed split between Crystal City and New York City, it remains to be seen how those projections would be distributed and scaled across multiple urban areas. According to the Journal's sources, talks with other cities - such as Denver, Toronto and Nashville - appear to have fizzled out.
