To encourage Amazon's expansion in New York, the company was offered up to $20m in performance-based tax credits. Amazon will invest $55m to outfit the office space at 5 Manhattan West using energy-efficient standards.

The expansion will create 2000 jobs that will earn an average of $100,000 annually. Amazon will also retain over 1,800 jobs in New York State.

Amazon did not respond to a request for comment.

However, in a statement, Paul Kotas, Amazon's senior vice president of worldwide advertising, said, "We're excited to expand our presence in New York - we have always found great talent here. Last January we announced our plans to create 100,000 full-time, full-benefit jobs in the US by mid-2018 - and we are on track to reach that goal."

Earlier this month, Amazon announced plans to build a second US headquarters.

On September 6, Cuomo announced a $100m, 855,000-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center in Staten Island, which will support 2,250 full-time jobs. Amazon also has a Fashion Photography and Videography Studio in Brooklyn and a 350,000-square-foot administrative office in Manhattan.
