Amazon Announces Search to Build Second Headquarters


SEATTLE, WA
Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Amazon continues to gain ground following its high-profile acquisition of Whole Foods, and now the company is looking to fortify its current position by building a second North American headquarters. HQ2, as the company calls it, has been projected to cost more than $5 billion, accommodating up to 50,000 staff. And the company has put out a call for proposals to regional governments as it seeks a location for the massive project.

Jeff Bezos, Founder and CEO, Amazon“We expect HQ2 to be a full equal to our Seattle headquarters,” Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos said in a press release. “Amazon HQ2 will bring billions of dollars in up-front and ongoing investments, and tens of thousands of high-paying jobs. We’re excited to find a second home.”

Amazon Headquarters

Amazon has noted that an ideal location for HQ2 would involve:

  • Metropolitan areas with more than one million people
  • A stable and business-friendly environment
  • Urban or suburban locations with the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent
  • Communities that think big and creatively when considering locations and real estate options

Amazon also noted, in its press release, that the project would initially need more than 500,000 square feet and up to 8 million square feet beyond 2027.

Deli Market News will continue to report as the online retailer takes to brick and mortar grocery business with increasing relish.
