Delaware Proposes 3 Sites for New Amazon Headquarters

Not to be upstaged, New York City made a proposal without incentives special for Amazon, though the state is expected to offer some, a spokesperson for the city's economic development corporation said on Wednesday.

All of these locations fulfill all of Amazon's qualifications (and to everyone saying Wilmington is off the table because it has less than 1 million people, Philadelphia is fewer than 30 miles from all of these sites, fulfilling the requirement that it must be within 30 miles of a city of 1 million or more).

One of the showiest stunts was Tucson's donation of a giant cactus to Amazon Head Jeff Bezos, a ploy which was promptly refused by the company.

In addition to boasting about a growing pool of qualified candidates and having the highest concentration of tech sector jobs of any Canadian city, Montreal's pitch included a comparison to Toronto, pointing out that it's cheaper for young professionals to live here.

Cities across the US and Canada are clamoring at the prospect of landing Amazon's second headquarters - and with it, investments topping $5 billion. For Indianapolis it has been a largely quiet process, but one local expert says that might actually play to the city's advantage.

Jackson said in a statement, "In recent days we worked with public, private and civic leaders across our community to tell the story of Cleveland's resurgence and pursue this enormous opportunity".

Gary could have a strong chance to get Amazon's attention, McDermott said, and the city has the necessary acreage, room for growth and an airport. Calgary's bid mentions the large volume of office space already built in the city and empty due to widespread lay-offs.

More than 100 municipalities in North America are expected to submit bids, according to a press release.

Trump promised $25K to father of fallen soldier but didn't follow through
Separately, Trump has feuded with a congresswoman over her account of a call he made to the widow of another soldier. He later sought to walk the claim back, though did not apologise for his error when it was pointed out.

The company also says it's looking for a tax-friendly climate for it's second headquarters. Amazon expects to hire up to 50,000 employees for its new headquarters, and is already struggling to fill all its existing jobs, with 3,000 technology positions now open, Mr. Thomson said.

"So i think what we're going to do is put our best foot forward in terms of what we think will make Amazon successful in the long run, and we're not the type to shout it out", said Saxton.

Three other regions of the city are also offered as suitable locations.
