Amazon.com Inc. isn’t setting up a new headquarters in New York City, but Jeff Bezos may be.

The tech giant’s chief executive officer is buying three condos at Manhattan’s 212 Fifth Ave. with a total value of about $80 million, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday. If the three apartments -- a penthouse and two units below it -- were combined, the home would have 12 bedrooms and more than 17,000 square feet (1,600 square meters) of space, the Journal reported.
