Citing unnamed "public and private sector officials", the Post reported that a major landlord in Crystal City has taken buildings off the leasing market in anticipation of Amazon, which has said it plans to open an initial 500,000-square-foot office in 2019, and government officials are reportedly discussing how to make a public announcement in November after the midterm elections.
Amazon is reportedly in advanced talks with officials in Northern Virginia about the possibility of opening its second headquarters in Crystal City.
Crystal City, with easy transit access, is close to Reagan National Airport, and ready-to-occupy office buildings, has always been considered a strong contender. One tweet read, in part, "You're not doing Crystal City, VA any favors".

Amazon initially chose 20 possible cities for next headquarters and said it plans to make $5 billion in capital investments alone in the city it chooses.
The retail giant announced past year that it was looking to open a second headquarters somewhere in the USA, a move that could bring with it as many as 50,000 new jobs.
He also hinted that Amazon compelled finalists to sign a nondisclosure agreement (NDA) that the leakers may be violating.
A spokesperson for Amazon declined to comment. The e-commerce giant has said it will announce the location by the end of 2018. Amazon executives did not return to Boston for a second site visit this fall - though Bezos was spotted dining in Kendall Square last weekend.
