The locations for Amazon’s now split HQ2 have been revealed. According to The Wall Street Journal, the company has selected New York City and Northern Virginia, specifically, Long Island City in Queens and the Crystal City area in Arlington, Va. Though Amazon has not confirmed these reports, they are expected to make an announcement as early today.

The report comes shortly after it was revealed Amazon would split the HQ2 location, and the 50,000 person workforce, across two cities, a decision the company has been criticized for. It is likely both locations will seem a multifamily housing boom to help ease the burden of the 25,000 new workers.

With the HQ2 locations finally picked (the list was shortened to 20 cities in January after HQ2’s official announcement in 2017), we move one step closer to Amazon revealing the first design information about the projects. When that happens, check back with for all the most recent information.
