The online retailing giant is looking to split its planned second headquarters - dubbed HQ2 - between two cities, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday, citing a person familiar with the move.

While sources told the Journal the final locations have not yet been chosen, The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Amazon was in late stage talks with Crystal City, Virginia, which is part of Arlington.

Amazon's plans, the Journal reported, would place about 25,000 workers in each city, a move created to give the company a greater ability to attract talented workers. Amazon's HQ2 choice will depend heavily on currying favor from cities and states, and that means addressing their concerns about the impact of having many workers flood into a given area.

Amazon has not confirmed either report. The process certainly hasn't been rushed, as it took Amazon until January of 2018 to release their 20 city shortlist. The difficulty in acquiring enough tech talent for the massive hub, the report says, is the primary driver for that decision.
