Denver submits bid for second Amazon headquarters

Denver submits bid for second Amazon headquarters”

As cities around the country put in their bid for Amazon's second headquarters, Gilbert is making a push for Detroit to get the hotly anticipated expansion. The proposals were due Thursday. The precise locations haven't been publicly unveiled, although officials in various cities have said the proposed locations include Fort Worth's Panther Island, Arlington's Globe Life Park, Grapevine's undeveloped land on the north end of DFW Airport and locations in Dallas, Frisco and Irving.

"I love DFW because it's vibrant", Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price says in a brief appearance at the beginning of the video.

Erdmann said Amazon gave Missouri officials the go-ahead to submit the application, although he said the company had asked for only one bid per metropolitan area.

Cities like Austin and Philadelphia and regional areas of Minnesota and North Carolina are eager for the 50,000 jobs that would come with the company.

A Hyperloop track to connect the cities is not guaranteed, although Missouri this month re-emerged as a potential location despite not earning a spot last month in a top 10 list of possible future routes for the mode of transportation. Leaders there penned a letter to Amazon bringing up concerns over large tax breaks and incentives, saying "blindly giving away the farm isn't our style".

Amazon has said it will announce a decision for its second campus, in addition to its Seattle headquarters, next year.
