Report: Amazon Renewing NYC Expansion Initiative

According to a report in the New York Post, Amazon is shopping for office space on Manhattan’s West Side after political turmoil caused it to walk away from its second headquarters project in Queens.

The newspaper cited unnamed sources in reporting that Amazon has been in talks with owners of two new Midtown skyscrapers, One Manhattan West and its soon-to-be sister project, Two Manhattan West.

A Post source told the newspaper that the etailer is seeking at least 100,000 square feet and possibly much more to start.

Amazon already has 5,000 workers in New York City, the Post noted.
