Report: Amazon Selects NYC, Northern Virginia for New Headquarters Project - top government contractors - best government contracting eventAmazon has reportedly picked Northern Virginia's Crystal City and New York's Long Island City to house its two new headquarters sites, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

Sources said the Seattle-based e-commerce firm could officially announce its decision as early as Tuesday and government officials from both regions plan to host events for the imminent announcement on the same day.

The decision came a week after Amazon reportedly decided to split its proposed second headquarters into two regional sites in hopes of hiring more technology talent.

Amazon initiated its search for its HQ2 site in September 2017 through a request for proposals and shortlisted 20 candidate locations for the project.

The company said it plans to invest more than $5B in the HQ2 development project and create up to 50K jobs in the selected city with a stable business environment and technical talent specifically in the field of software development.
