Don't you think it's too central? I sort of think they'll go more east coast-south east? Could be wrong, but thinking Boston or Atlanta on this...they may be front runners. With dark horses being Minneapolis or Nashville...

I'd be surprised if HQ2 didn't land in the Eastern Time Zone.

Depends on what the end game really is. If they truly want co-equal "headquarters" then Denver may be too close to Seattle, but if "HQ2" is a smokescreen for transitioning execs out of Seattle then Denver is a great choice.

If so, where and what is the transportation package? DC also has one of the most lucrative incentive packages for tech companies in the whole nation:

That's how we got Yelp this summer. From the Mayor:

“D.C. is open for business and we believe we check the boxes for Amazon’s request for a second headquarters with our highly educated workforce, expanding business community and thriving tech sector. We are evaluating the RFP to determine next steps.”

Schuylkill Yards - Where Ideas Converge


https://archpaper.com/2016/06/amtrak...lery-0-slide-0


two projects in need of very large tenants


Located right at 30th Street Station in U City Philly next to UPenn and Drexel


would be a good fit


For the first there is rumors of Apple East as the CFO of Apple is Drexel grad and believe on the Schuylkillyards development board or something like that


Also a Keystone Opportunity zone so already many tax breaks in place


Given their desire for a city and burb location there are a couple of options linked by rail service in the burbs (Bezos seems to advocate PT)


KOP - New NHSL subway extension
Is King of Prussia the New Promised Land? | Property




Navy Yard - BSL subway extension - technically in Philly but a suburban like location
The Navy Yard | A Campus Built for Business Growth | Philadelphia, PA


Camden with two tax incentivized locations (potentially better subsidies with two states kicking in) and PATCO subway links
Massive $1 Billion Development Planned for Camden Waterfront


https://www.bizjournals.com/philadel...park-plan.html




all these project are underway




would be interesting anyway
