A source familiar with Amazon’s planned development of a new headquarters in Long Island City has confirmed that the e-commerce giant plans to build the HQ at 44th Drive between the East River and Vernon Boulevard.

The source also told the Eagle on Wednesday that the area encompasses most of the Long Island City Innovation Center proposal, the Department of Education building and some of the Plaxall development, near Anable Basin.

Previously, Margaret Waterman, an Amazon spokesperson, told the Eagle in an email that Amazon’s new campus, “will be around Anable Basin” but did not offer any further details.

Questions pertaining to the new headquarters’ effect on the Queens community, including local employment, was met with a referral to Amazon’s official blog post.
