Best city for new Amazon HQ2? New York, wait, Birmingham. No, Denver”

Stonecrest officials plan to submit a bid for Amazon's HQ2 by the company's October 19 deadline.

E-commerce supergiant Amazon wants to build a new company headquarters, and dozens of cities are doing anything they can to woo the new corporate center (and the thousands of jobs that would accompany it) to their areas.

Stonecrest's 53,000 residents voted to incorporate on November 8, 2016 and it officially became a city on January 1, 2017.

Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary says the proposal is the most unique ever offered to a company. And it would give the Seattle-based company vast power to market its second headquarters for 50,000 employees, he said.

Officials from a recently incorporated city outside Atlanta want to shed some of their new municipality's land and rename it Amazon, Georgia.

In the call for submissions, Amazon said HQ2 would require 165 acres of land, proximity to an global airport, public transportation, and a high standard of living for employees. The Amazon jobs are expected to pay $100,000.

The city's resolution asks the Georgia General Assembly to form the city of Amazon on that land, located off Lithonia Industrial Boulevard and Coffee Road in DeKalb County.

"We have all of those qualities as well with MARTA rail planned to our community, interstate improvements under way and a highly-educated work force eager to see the company locate here", Lary said. If Amazon became its own city, it would likely enter an intergovernmental agreement with Stonecrest to provide city services.

The city government's website opens with a photo of the new council's swearing-in last May but then moves quickly to a slide that declares "Shop the Mall at Stonecrest".

Other spots in New Jersey preparing a bid for Amazon include Salem County, Newark, Bayonne, Fort Monmouth and Mercer County, among others.
