Cleveland to bid on Amazon headquarters site

Cleveland to bid on Amazon headquarters site”

In the Detroit News today, columnist Daniel Howes examined whether Detroit has the leadership to land the much talked about Amazon HQ2, a second headquarters for the massive online retailer.

Plus, Howes said, Detroit has a lot in its favor: the city is spread out, so Amazon would have more options to build their headquarters, and it has an "aggressive" business community that has been tested by hard times.

The city is now gathering proposals from landowners, developers, and economic groups in the city to make a specific single pitch to Amazon. The city doesn't plan to offer big financial incentives, considering NY an attractive enough location without them, Glen said.

"Kids want to work in NYC", she said.

Seattle-based Amazon last week solicited proposals for the headquarters, a project that will cost more than $5 billion, and create 50,000 jobs over the next 15 to 17 years.

Cleveland is among more than 100 USA and Canada locations that have expressed interest in putting in a bid, according to the Seattle Times. NY believes it's a strong contender for a number of reasons, including its vast higher education system, diverse workforce, and proven track record with hosting tech headquarters. Amazon set an October 19 deadline for proposals, and plans to make a decision next year. "That's why a thousand people move here every month", Bowser said.

With high housing costs and low subsidies, NY faces steep comepition to bring Amazon to its city. "They're enough of a brand name employer they can lure local graduates and recruit from bigger markets and they can pay less".
