  • Amazon could make northern Virginia its second home

According to a report by The Washington Post, Amazon has held advanced discussions about putting the highly sought-after facility in the Crystal City area of Arlington, Virginia.

An economic development director at Amazon.com Inc. isn't happy about a Washington Post report that the e-commerce giant is in advanced talks with a Washington suburb about being the location for its second headquarters.

Crystal City, with easy transit access, is close to Reagan National Airport, and ready-to-occupy office buildings, has always been considered a strong contender.

Gargan said Amazon remains an "active project" in North Carolina, which means much of the details regarding what the state is offering to lure the company remain under wraps.

Two people close to the process said that if Crystal City was selected, Amazon was likely to move an initial group of several hundred employees into 1851 South Bell Street or 1770 Crystal Drive.

Later, he continued his parents' property investment strategy to become a successful Italian-American real estate developer. But Segale is integral to the world of video games for one simple reason: he served as the namesake for Nintendo's Mario .

The Northern Virginia neighborhood is just across the Potomac River from the nation's capital and discussions are apparently far enough along that one of the city's prominent real estate developers, JBG Smith, has pulled some of its property off the market. Crystal City is served by Washington's Metro subway system.

Amazon announced past 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.

In a subsequent tweet, Grella criticized The Post for a story linking Bezos' private jet's flight history to the Amazon HQ2 search. "And stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin", he said, in reference to the non-disclosure agreement that all finalists had to sign.

Amazon has said it plans to reveal where it will base its second headquarters by the end of the year, and says it is now assessing around 20 locations. A decision is scheduled by the end of the year, with 20 cities in the US and Canada in the running.

An Amazon spokesman declined to comment Saturday.
