Amazon plans to split HQ2

Amazon plans to split its second headquarters evenly between two locations rather than concentrating on one city. The company is to recruit the best talents and move them to the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens and the Crystal City area of Arlington, Va.

Amazon executives met 2 weeks ago with Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in the governor’s Manhattan office. The state offered hundreds of millions of dollars in subsidies, but these are only rumors spread by the source.

“I am doing everything I can,” Governor Cuomo told reporters. “We have a great incentive package,” he said.

“I’ll change my name to Amazon Cuomo if that’s what it takes,” Governor Cuomo said. “Because it would be a great economic boost.”

In September, Amazon announced plans for a second headquarters as the company is getting bigger than its headquarters in Seattle can hire.

“Even if the most obvious reasons appear to be about attracting more tech workers, the P.R. and government incentives benefits could help, too,” said Jed Kolko, chief economist at Indeed.

He also added that the government “might feel pressure to increase the incentives they are offering Amazon, and the surprise is yet another news cycle for the Amazon headquarters process,” he said.

With the appearance of the second headquarters, Amazon customer service might improve.
