Amazon is ordering up a second home. The Seattle-based online giant announced this week that it is looking to build another headquarters somewhere in North America. Amazon plans to spend around $5 billion on a new corporate campus to house as many as 50,000 employees. CEO Jeff Bezos said the new digs will “be a full equal” to Amazon’s still-growing presence in Seattle, where 40,000 employees already occupy 8.1 million square feet of office space. [Seattle Times]
