Amazon.com Inc. is narrowing the field of candidate cities for its second headquarters, but that doesn’t mean it’s forgotten about Seattle.

The e-commerce giant aims to have almost 14 million square feet (1.3 million square meters) of office space in its hometown, according to a tally in a report by the Downtown Seattle Association confirmed by Amazon.

That’s up from about 10 million square feet today and from a previous proposal to expand to about 12 million square feet.

When Amazon announced its intentions last year for what it dubbed HQ2, it caused some handwringing in the Emerald City. Had Seattle’s progressive politics pushed the company away? The latest expansion plans suggest Amazon will remain a dominant force in a city where it already occupies more office space than any other business.

The new estimate was reported earlier by the Seattle Times.
