Amazon to split new HQ between 2 locations

By Marianne Wilson - 11/13/2018
Amazon announced it has selected New York City and Arlington, Virginia, as the locations for the company’s new headquarters. The announcement comes after weeks of rumors that the two cities had beat out all the other contestants.

Amazon said it will invest $5 billion and create more than 50,000 jobs across the two new headquarters locations, with more than 25,000 employees each in New York City and Arlington. The new locations will join Seattle as the company’s three headquarters in North America.

In addition, Amazon announced that it has selected Nashville for a new “Center of Excellence” for its operations business. It will responsible for the company’s customer fulfillment, transportation, supply chain, and other similar activities.

The new Washington, D.C., metro headquarters in Arlington will be located in National Landing, and the New York City headquarters will be located in the Long Island City neighborhood in Queens. Amazon’s investments in each new headquarters will spur the creation of tens of thousands of additional jobs in the surrounding communities. Hiring at both the new headquarters will begin in 2019.

The operations Center of Excellence will be located in downtown Nashville as part of a new development site just north of the Gulch, and hiring will also begin in 2019.
