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.
According to the source, the decision to have two HQ2 locations is related to the company's ability to recruit enough tech talent. Splitting the second headquarters would also ease issues related to housing, transit, and other issues.
Amazon is in the final days of its journey to make a decision, with the company saying its pick will be made before the end of 2018. The company has said it plans to invest over $5 billion in the expansion.
Over the weekend, The Journal reported that cities including Crystal City, Virginia, New York City, and Dallas are still in active talks with Amazon regarding HQ2.
Amazon did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
