Arlington. Not exactly close to EP but sure should see some type of benefit from it as more people will flee from the gridlock of NOVA/DC.

Default Amazon to Crystal City and New York City

Thought I would start a new thread to make this stand out:

"The Seattle-based company made its long-awaited announcement Tuesday, saying Long Island City and Alexandria, Virginia, will each get 25,000 jobs. The online retailer also said it will open an operations hub in Nashville, creating 5,000 jobs."
NY taxpayers to pay $48,000 per Amazon HQ job - Story | WNYW

Amazon will also receive as-yet unspecified incentives from New York City.
New York state's incentives are nearly triple those of Virginia's, while Tennessee's are $102 million.
According to Amazon, the cost per job for New York taxpayers is $48,000, compared to $22,000 for Virginia and $13,000 for Tennessee.
In a statement released by Amazon, Cuomo called the agreement "one of the largest, most competitive economic development investments in U.S. history."
New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson issued a statement saying: "Amazon is one of the richest companies in the world...I also don’t understand why a company as rich as Amazon would need nearly $2 billion in public money for its expansion plans at a time when New York desperately needs money for affordable housing, transportation, infrastructure and education."


Given the hit that Crystal City took after government jobs were relocated post 9/11, there should be plenty of space available.

I merged two posts into this thread. We really only needed one thread for this topic.
