Amazon announced previous year that the retail giant was looking to open a second headquarters somewhere in North America, bringing with it as many as 50,000 new jobs.
Spokesmen for Amazon and realtor JBG Smith declined to comment for the WaPo report, as did Arlington County officials. This plan will split employees between the two headquarters at 25,000 each. The story suggested to many that Amazon was zeroing in on northern Virginia, one of three sites in and around Washington, D.C., that made the short list of places under consideration for HQ2.

Lending credence to the Crystal City speculation was a tweet from Mike Grella, Amazon's director of economic development, who lashed out at the leakers, saying they weren't "doing Crystal City, VA any favors". Such a move could also reduce the risk that Amazon's infusion of tens of thousands of workers into a city would have disruptive effects on housing, transportation or other urban issues.
