The Amazon founder Jeff Bezos  has taken an "emotional" decision to relocate to Miami.

Taking to his account on Thursday,  shared a video clip  featuring the early days of Bezos in Amazon's  building.

“Seattle has been my home since 1994 when I started Amazon out of my garage," Bezos' began in the  caption.

While revealing that his father, Miguel Bezos, was filming him behind the camera he continued, “My parents [Miguel and Jacklyn] have always been my biggest supporters. They recently moved back to Miami, the place we lived when I was younger (Miami Palmetto High class of ’82 — GO Panthers!).”

He went on to explain the reason behind his decision, “I want to be close to my parents, and [fiancée] Lauren and I love Miami.”

Bezos further continued, "Blue Origin’s operations are increasingly shifting to Cape Canaveral. For all that, I’m planning to return to Miami, leaving the Pacific Northwest."

Bezos recalled his time in Seattle over the past few decades, noting how it’s the city he’s lived in the longest.

The 59-year-old business tycoon added, “[I] have so many amazing memories here." 

"As exciting as the move is, it’s an emotional decision for me. Seattle, you will always have a piece of my heart," he wrote.

In the throwback clip, Bezos could be seen showing around the office in his three-bedroom Seattle home.

“That’s about it," joked the future billionaire, while standing among a stash of loose papers and books,  fax machines, a giant whiteboard, and two desks with older computers in his home office.

As the camera pans across the office, he says “It doesn’t take long to tour the offices of Amazon.com."


This announcement comes shortly after Bezos updated his followers about  the purchasing of a seven-bedroom mansion on a small private island in Biscayne Bay. As reported by Bloomberg, the mansion on the man-made island costs $79 million.
