Amazon said it plans to expand its headcount to more than 15,000 people in Bellevue, Wash., the growing city 10 miles east of Seattle where the tech giant was originally born, within a few years.

That’s a more than 7X increase over the 2,000 people the company has in Bellevue today. Amazon opened its first office in the city in 2017, and has steadily been leasing properties across downtown since then.

The centerpiece of the company’s Bellevue presence is a huge new office tower planned on a site Amazon bought for $195 million last year. Amazon showed off the latest rendering of the new 600 Bellevue Tower as part of today’s announcement.
