Amazon to split 2nd headquarters between two cities?

Amazon is considering splitting its new second headquarters between two cities instead of awarding the prize to just one, the Wall St. Journal reports.

The driving force behind the decision to build two equal offices in addition to the company’s headquarters in Seattle is recruiting enough tech talent, according to the person familiar with the company’s plans. The move will also ease potential issues with housing, transit and other areas where adding tens of thousands of workers could cause problems.

Latest speculation leaves out Chicago.
