Amazon eliminates Orlando as contender for 2nd headquarters

Employment opportunities two hours away and potential Amazon suppliers closer to home have northeast in business and government authorities excited about the possibilities.

Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO, owns the Washington Post and in 2016 bought a Washington, D.C., home for a reported $23 million.

Since 2010, DFW added more than 700,000 jobs and 75 corporate headquarters relocated here.

New Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz said he wasn't surprised Toledo failed to make Amazon's list and said he'll support Columbus in whatever way he can.

"It's a long list, for a shortlist", said Jed Kolko, chief economist at job site Indeed. But Amazon also made clear in that it wanted tax breaks, grants and any other incentives.

And while Newark draws from the same talent pool as New York City, it is "far more affordable" than its neighbor or Boston, Glover said, and is positioned in the middle of the Northeast Corridor.

North Texas leaders say when it's come to luring businesses, they usually end up competing with cities that have airport hubs.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment about whether locations would be able to change their proposals or offer better incentives but said in a statement that it would "work with each of the candidate locations to dive deeper into their proposals".

But what Amazon is really looking for, is a good deal. "So, we've got a great relationship going with them already". "I think obviously to land an operation of this size and substance with the impact it's going to have you want to help them in ways to encourage them to come". R-Indianapolis, said he was not surprised by the news and credited fellow Republicans for making IN "as regulatory friendly and as business friendly and tax friendly as possible".

Assemblywoman Eliana Pintor Marin, who sponsored the bill, said she was pleased the governor signed the legislation. "We have our hands full to make sure our headquarters here and the employees here - that their needs are met and our needs are met". But Amazon and its suppliers could provide opportunities for Fort Wayne and northeast IN in particular, he said.

"New Hampshire's groundbreaking proposal to recruit Amazon was the most comprehensive business marketing plan our state has ever produced", Gov. Chris Sununu said in a statement. "This would speed it up a little more than we anticipated", she said. "We're seeing that ramp up, so that feeds into the kind of labor market that somebody like Amazon would be looking for".

Maybe we were Amazon's No. 21. "This is a considerable boost for Vallejo, one we may not have had without the Amazon opportunity as an objective to pursue". Denver is thriving, with more people moving in every day.

"I think it's exciting", said Sydney Layfield. "And we don't have to be too parochial about that".

"The Bay Area is too close to (Amazon's) current headquarters and the new area needed to be either in the Midwest or on the East Coast coast to help with growing USA logistics", Bajarin said.

In a note to investors, the Kansas City Area Development Council suggested it had received positive feedback from Amazon about its submission.

"This new investment would be a tremendous benefit to all communities in our state", he said.

"It starts with fact that Amazon is located in a place similar to the Bay Area", Wunderman said. What can Pittsburgh learn from the site of Amazon's first headquarters: Seattle?

"It's a pretty big testament to Texas's business strength in attracting big corporations in the fact that we had two cities make the cut", Rodriguez-Greenwood said.
