Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Amazon will be opening a 359,000 square foot administrative office at 5 Manhattan West in midtown, creating 2,000 new jobs in finance, sales, marketing, and information technology. Amazon was given $20 million in tax credits for the expansion. 

"Amazon's further expansion in New York is proof positive that our strong economic climate, diverse workforce and talent, are helping to attract top-notch companies from around the world," Cuomo said. 

Amazon will invest $55 million to outfit the space using energy-efficient standards, Cuomo said.  Amazon will also retain over 1,800 jobs in New York State, Cuomo said.

"We're excited to expand our presence in New York - we have always found great talent here," said Paul Kotas, Amazon's Senior Vice President of Worldwide Advertising.
