Langford submits official bid to host Amazon's second headquarters

Langford submits official bid to host Amazon's second headquarters”

In addition to the video, Team Delaware also launched a new website, OptionsInDE.com, and the hashtag - you guessed it - #OptionsInDE.

The new headquarters could bring 50,000 jobs and $5 billion in investment.

Staff with the the City of Langford took no chances making sure a bid to be the home of Amazon's second headquarters arrived ahead of the Thursday at midnight deadline.

Gov. Charlie Baker, whose administration is not promoting one site during the first round, penned a letter extolling the virtues of the Boston region, while Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo, whose community has some of the Suffolk Downs within its borders, signed a letter of support for Boston's bid. Another top real estate offering pushed by developers includes the Union Point development at the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station. Applications are expected to come from dozens of US states and Canadian provinces.

With cities across the country in various stages of Amazon HQ2 mania (yeah, it's bleak), DE made a decision to take a fairly laid-back approach: The pitch video touting our little state as the ideal place to run a business never utters the word "Amazon".

New Bedford also is applying, touting itself as "the inspiring place from which Herman Melville's novel "Moby Dick" began".

"I think we showed we are serious about competing", said Tim Murray of the Worcester Chamber of Commerce.

"The number one economy in Victoria is the knowledge economy", he said.

But it's also competing against its neighbors: Several smaller MA cities — along with Rhode Island and southern New Hampshire — are each submitting their own pitches to Amazon, using proximity to Boston's tech talent as a major draw.

New Hampshire leaders on Wednesday announced a proposal centered in the town of Londonderry.

"Guelph ticks all of the boxes when it comes to providing an environment for research, innovation and the talent Amazon needs for their business to grow and thrive", said Scott Stewart, deputy chief administrative officer, Infrastructure, Development and Enterprise for the City of Guelph.
