Amazon is still narrowing down candidates for its highly coveted second headquarters, but it's picked the city of Boston for an expanded tech hub to support its machine learning, cloud computing, and robotics efforts. A recent study by the real-estate website Zillow found Boston's selection could boost rental prices by 1.4 percent, which would take the current median rent from $2,371 up to $2,490.

Amazon will expand into a brand new location in QuadReal's The Post redevelopment when the project opens in 2022.
