City submits bid for new Amazon.com North American headquarters

New York City landmarks to turn orange in honor of city's Amazon HQ2 bid

Amazon said it's looking for certain things from its new HQ2 location, including a large metropolitan area with more than 1 million people, access to mass transit, a business-friendly environment and an worldwide airport within 45 minutes of its new headquarters.

Since Amazon started taking bids for a second headquarters, Albuquerque and state leaders have pointed out our 300-plus days of sunshine, the city's almost complete ART line, our walkable downtown and our vibrant and diverse population.

Matt Cabrey of Select Greater Philadelphia says that includes a letter of solidarity from officials in the entire 11-county region.

Potential sites, financial incentives and other details of the response to Amazon's request for proposal are not being disclosed. "There is no reason for us to get caught up in the hoopla and all of the "what if" scenarios".

"Amazon did talk about how they wanted cities with good networks for flying in and out of the city, so a good airport, we do have that", he said.

On Oct. 6, Curry said the city would make a formal bid, saying "Jacksonville has all the attributes" to bring what could be a transformative corporate expansion to North Florida.

The company says they plan to spend more than $5 billion on the project that will create 50,000 jobs.
