Spokane submits its proposal to become Amazon's second headquarters

Check out the video D-FW is using to get Amazon to Texas and see if you would be impressed

The company is looking to invest $5 billion in construction for a new campus that will employ up to 50,000 people. "While this is an extremely competitive situation, we are confident in what Cleveland has to offer and excited at the prospect of being Amazon's second home".

Deb Janik, senior vice president for real estate and development of the Greater Cleveland Partnership, told Crain's on the deadline day, Thursday, Oct. 19, that the bid has been sent to the Seattle-based company.

He said if Amazon rejects Memphis, it will reinforce areas where the bluff city must improve to draw new industries.

As expected, Suffolk Downs topped the city's proposed sites. Little Rock also couldn't meet other requirements cited by the company, including that the location be within 45 minutes of an global airport.




Many Canadian cities, including Montreal and Vancouver, have not revealed details of any incentives they may be offering, saying Amazon asked for bids to be confidential.

Earlier this week, the incumbent mayor, Denis Coderre, said securing the Amazon headquarters would be a boon for Montreal, while Projet Montréal leader and mayoral candidate Valérie Plante said she wants to make sure negotiations benefit the city, too.

Amazon has said it wants a city with more than a million people, an worldwide airport, and a quote "business-friendly tax structure".

Former Amazon executive James Thomson, who headed the business allowing outside companies to sell on Amazon's platform, said Friday he was more impressed by Toronto's bid than he had anticipated. 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. With the release of the announcement expected next year, Deli Market News will continue to report.
