Dallas Makes List of 20 Metro Areas Considered for HQ2

19 January, 2018, 02:52 | Author: Bertha Harmon

Unless one of the cities listed below is Amazon's codename for Cleveland, the Forest City is out of the running as the location for the company's second headquarters.

Austin and Dallas join Boston, New York, D.C., Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Nashville, Denver, Toronto, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Newark, Northern Virginia, Raleigh, Montgomery County in Maryland, and Columbus, Ohio as potential landing spots for the new headquarters.

Amazon said it expects to make a final decision this year.

Amazon officials made the announcement, saying that 20 locations have been paired down from the initial 238 applications. Amazon said it will invest $5 billion into the campus and hire 50,000 workers.

However, THR states that Apple does not actually own the show, as a yet-to-be-decided studio will hold that claim instead. They also have announced an in-the-works space drama from " Battlestar Galactica " executive producer Ronald D.

The 238 bids for Amazon's headquarters came from 43 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, as well as cities in seven Canadian provinces and three Mexican states. Employees there would earn an average of $100,000 per year, Amazon says.

Two proposals to bring a new Amazon headquarters to ME have been ruled out, according to the company.

The province said it would consider $980 million in tax breaks and training support over 16 years for Amazon if Winnipeg were short-listed. "We made a strong proposal for #AmazonHQ2".

"Most of those, they're pretty much move-in ready but ultimately the four sites will give them access to [audiobook company] Audible".

Apple to pay $38 billion in USA taxes on overseas cash
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal in July, Trump said he had a phone conversation with Cook. Apple always owed taxes on this money, but didn't have to actually pay it until it was repatriated.

And on the talent front, Gov. Rick Snyder is making a final-year-in-office stab at addressing the existing shortages in computer science-educated workers that existing MI companies are facing.

The next step will include Amazon working with each candidate to dive deeper into the proposals, request more information and evaluate the location's feasibility.

In Seattle, Amazon's headquarters spans 33 buildings and 8.1 million square feet. The company has already changed the character of its native Seattle.

At this point, where Amazon chooses to build HQ2 is anyone's guess.
