Amazon will soon lease a new office in the Seaport District, and the company will reportedly hire at least 2,000, and possibly as many as 4,000, more employees. Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced the news on Tuesday, saying the deal could triple Amazon's current workforce in Boston and Cambridge, and it could make the company one of our region’s biggest private employers.
Now this is NOT the "second headquarters" that's been dominating the news, though Boston is still in the running for that! And this looks like a good sign if you ask me! Here's what Mayor Walsh had to say: “It’s not HQ2. But it is great news for Boston. Projects like these are a tremendous vote of confidence in our city’s economy.”
