Amazon is set to take about 1 million square feet of space at Savanna’s One Court Square office tower when it moves to Long Island City.

The real estate company announced in a release that it entered a letter of intent for the lease.

“We’re thrilled that Amazon selected One Court Square as a critical component of its HQ2 plans for Long Island City,” Savanna managing partner Nicholas Bienstock said in a statement.

Reports that the tech giant planned to split its long-heralded second headquarters between Long Island City and Crystal City, Virginia circled last week, and Amazon confirmed the news on Tuesday. The company will also open a new regional hub in Nashville.

Sources previously told The Real Deal that Amazon would likely focus on Court Square and the Factory District if it moved to Long Island City. One Court Square was widely seen as a prime fit based on Citigroup’s plans to vacate 1 million square feet in the building come 2020 when its lease expires.

Other potential sites included Savanna’s Falchi Building and Tishman Speyer’s JACX, among others.
