Virginia may have squashed Columbus’ dream of Amazon HQ2

According to The Washington Post, Columbus may have been bounced out of the running for Amazon’s second headquarters by Virginia.

Apparently, the e-commerce giant has had more extensive conversations with Northern Virginia than any of the other 19 finalists including talking points like how soon Amazon would be able to move its employees tot he Arlington County neighborhood and which buildings it could occupy, reports Columbus Business First.


However, our former arch enemy Austin, Texas (we’ve lowered our weapons since we #SavedTheCrew) may still have a shot, sort of.

CBF reports Amazon may be considering splitting HQ2 between NOVA and Austin.

Miami and Boston still may have a shot too, according to reports.
