  • Amazon plans to lease office space in a building near Hudson Yards Inc said on Friday it would open a new office in New York's Manhattan to house its consumer and advertising teams.

Amazon has signed a lease for a new 335,000-square-foot office in New York City, the company told Business Insider on Friday, confirming an earlier report in the Wall Street Journal. Scheduled to open in 2021, the new office will be located in the Hudson Yards area and will employ over 1,500 people, the company said. The New York Post reported in August that paperwork had been drafted for a almost 400,000 square foot Amazon lease at the property.

The move comes 10 months after the company cancelled plans for a headquarters in Queens after extensive backlash from residents and politicians, including Ocasio-Cortez.

Numerous cities had vied to host the new Amazon headquarters, hoping that elaborate incentive packages would attract the giant. Critics in NY also anxious the headquarters, planned to be built in a working class area of Queens, would raise rents in the area and push locals into homelessness. The new office will add to the workforce Amazon now employs of more than 3,500 people in its New York City offices.

"Won't you look at that: Amazon is coming to NYC anyway - without requiring the public to finance shady deals, helipad handouts for Jeff Bezos, & corporate giveaways", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.
