Cities Bids are in for Amazon's Second Headquarters

Share

Amazon says they received 238 proposals from across North America as the company searches for someplace to build their second headquarters.

The online retail giant published a map Monday showing that bids came from D.C. and all but seven states - Arkansas, Hawaii, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming - as well as from most of southern Canada, three regions of Mexico and Puerto Rico. Amazon says it would mean 50,000 new jobs, and an investment of up to $5 billion.

Following the incident, a number of rappers came to The Based God's side on social media and on stage, offering tweets of support. So I just wanted to tell y'all 'cause they stole my s*** and everything so I can't even do my show, 'cause they stole my s***.

Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton, Halifax and Calgary are some of the Canadian cities that submitted proposals.

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors also voted to send a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in support of the local bid. Chicago is one of the USA cities competing to house Amazon.com Inc's second headquarters "Amazon HQ2". By holding the auction for HQ2 publicly, the company was likely able to pressure cities into competing to give Amazon better write-offs, subsidies, or tax breaks to an even greater degree.

The Chula Vista proposal was bolstered last week when its City Council approved a $400 million incentive package for Amazon, which would have HQ2 incorporated into the city's Millenia mixed-use mega-development.

The bulk of the package comes from $1.32 billion in state EDGE tax credits, which provide companies with tax breaks when they promise to create jobs in IL, the sources said.
