KXIP vs KKR Live Score

It was a little over a year ago when Amazon announced it would be looking to build a second headquarters somewhere in North America, in turn kicking off an unofficial competition with cities biding to lure the internet giant with tax and other incentives.

Amazon, based in Seattle, is apparently seriously considering an area known as Crystal City.

Amazon could announce its decision as early as this week, and prime contenders still in the running were reported to include Dallas, New York, and a city in the state of Virginia not far from Washington, DC.

Amazon could split its HQ2 between two cities , The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Discussions for Crystal City were more in-depth than in other cities in Northern Virginia and other locations, including NY and Dallas, the Post reported.

This report was seemingly corroborated in a tweet from Mike Grella, Amazon's Director of Economic Development, admonishing the source who leaked the Crystal City negotiations to WaPo.

Bob Swindell, head of the Greater South Florida Chamber in Broward, said he would not comment on new reports because, "We want to remain on great terms with them by adhering to our agreement as they navigate through their site selection process", he said.

Amazon expects to make its decision by the end of the year.
