Amazon reportedly to split HQ2 between two sites

There may be a new plot twist when it comes to where Amazon will open its newest North American headquarters.

Rather than settle on one city, the e-commerce giant is reportedly planning on crowning two winners to host the business office, which it is calling HQ2, according Business Insider, which cited the Wall Street Journal.

The e-commerce giant "plans to split its second headquarters evenly between two locations rather than picking one city for HQ2," a person familiar with the matter told The Journal. Each location would host roughly 25,000 Amazon employees.

Operating two locations would increase Amazon’s ability to recruit enough tech talent, and ease issues related to housing, transit, among other factors.
