We already have three - Braselton, Lithia Springs, and Union City.

It's also nice seeing investment going on in Macon itself.

Have to say perfect location, a City right in the Center of the state and about 80 to 90 miles south of Atlanta!!!

Distribution centers are all over the country, because people are spread out of the country. They have to be all over the place.

After seeing a BBC undercover documentary about work conditions in a fulfillment center.

I feel a little bit of guilt with every order click I make at Amazon.

This is a Great Addition and big win win for the City of Macon and Metro Area I must say... The Macon and Central Georgia area have some pretty big projects in works and doesn't seem to be slowing anytime soon. Infrastructure is getting pretty impressive for a city its size and loving seeing a project as Massive as the I-16/I-75 Interchange taking shape. Once complete the City will surely have a more Bigger City feel, especially Downtown with the new ramps and Interchanges. I think once they really get this Transit thing under its belt, Infrastructure will be Mastered for the 2nd Tier City... I just think a lot of that has to do with the leadership of MTA though, thats just my opinion.

All the predictions are probably useless, but this article isn't reassuring if you want Amazon HQ2 in ATL:

Atlanta did not make it on a list of 25 metros likely to land Amazon's $5 billion 'HQ2.'
