Likely the roughly 2K employee multi-story warehouse in Gwinnett County

FWIW, a business leader in one of the post-mortem articles actually said that Quarry Yards was the site Amazon favored the most.

I thought I read somewhere before they were adding a 200 person office in Atlantic Station? Or maybe I am confusing them with another company. Let me go look...

EDIT: It was actually 150 people they will be hiring for a logistics office in Atlantic Station, but it was announced way before the HQ2 decision. Maybe now they will expand that too. Who knows.

Don't belive the renderings have been post here yet, apologies if they have:

Some appear similar to renderings/projects we've seen and heard of previously (Quarry Yards, PCM Hotel, Arts Center TOD). Some appear new (north and south connector lids).

Midtown North

Midtown South

Yep AMZN has a presence in Atlanta with their AWS and logistics services.

@CQHolt, have you heard if any packages offered to AMZN included transit infrastructure improvements? I would have loved to see that with Atlanta's offer.

MARTA dedicated car. MARTA Board commit to exploring possibility of using MARTA car to distribute products throughout the city. Which is a unique idea that I would have loved to seen. It was not uncommon for Interurban streetcar lines to carry light freight to nearby businesses during off peak hours. Using MARTA to deliver Amazon packages and even WF groceries could help to reduce congestion of delivery trucks/vans on our residential streets, help in reducing food deserts, reduce the amount of porch pirates as riders could pick up deliveries from Amazon lockers at stations, and expand the reach of Prime to low income families.

I'm amazed the tour did not include Buckhead at all, which is arguably one of the most beautiful and luxurious areas of the city. Maybe it's not hip enough? Maybe leaders didn't want them to see traffic on Peachtree?

Thanks for sharing the response packages. This is all fantastic information and a wonderful view of the potential of this great city. It should provide inspiration and knowledge for any other companies that seek to relocate here in the future.
