retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The New York Post reports that while Amazon may have canceled its plans to build part of its much-publicized HQ2 campus in the New York City borough of Queens, it is shopping for office space on Manhattan’s west side.

According to the story, “The tech giant has been in talks with owners of two shiny, new skyscrapers located just one block west of Penn Station: The newly built One Manhattan West and its soon-to-be sister project Two Manhattan West … The online retailer is seeking ‘at least 100,000 square feet or much more’ - just to start, one well-placed source said.”
