Why Dallas may be the best place for Amazon's second headquarters

Why Dallas may be the best place for Amazon's second headquarters”

Ever since the e-commerce giant announced September 7 that it was seeking proposals for a site to build a new $5 billion North American headquarters that would be on par with its Seattle site and bring around 50,000 jobs, cities have been in a race to prove they have what takes to land the deal.

It certainly appears so, at least according to a Wall Street Journal analysis published Tuesday. That led them to came up with a top three of Dallas, Boston and Washington, DC - which have widely been considered among the top contenders. But the company is also factoring in things like cultural fit, the cost of living and the favorability of the state tax climate for business.

The pair used the e-commerce giant's own criteria, and found that Boston, Dallas, and Washington were the "best overall" fits for it. Perhaps surprisingly, Boston scored below average on the size of its tech labor force, a reminder that if Amazon really plans to hire 50,000 people it may need to choose quite a large city indeed. Although Dallas has a comprehensive bus and light-rail system, the Dallas-Fort Worth region is often criticized for its lack of alternatives to the automobile.
