Bezos has a home near Crystal City in Washington, D.C., close to the Post.
The competition that saw 238 cities across North America vie to become the site of the 50,000-person office kicked off on September 7, 2017.
Among the finalists that Amazon was holding advanced talks with were Dallas, Long Island City in NY and Arlington near Washington, DC, Reuters has reported, citing sources.
Amazon's decision will likely lead to more foreign visitors, fuel more global flights and potentially stimulate more exports.
NY and D.C. are the largest non-Seattle office outposts for Amazon, so the decision is hardly a surprise despite the year-long public relations spectacle surrounding.
The projects, which could reportedly be announced today, will create up to 50,000 jobs and cost at least $5bn to build.
It also has brought additional scrutiny to potential incentives Amazon might receive to locate in certain areas.
The fast influx of 25,000 highly paid techies would still be notable for the specific areas of Long Island City and Crystal City, for which Amazon would become the highest-profile, fast-growing employer. In its hometown, Amazon now occupy more than 8 million square feet - more than 40 buildings - in the heart of the city. Dozens of cities competed to lure Amazon to their locales, offering tax breaks and other incentives in the process. The change in plans came after Amazon executives concluded it could recruit more of the best tech talent if it spread the office over two locations.
Cities across the USA have spent months jockeying for a $5 billion investment. Amazon also has announced major hiring plans over the past year as it builds out more warehouses and expands its US workforce.
