Minnesota looks to lure Amazon headquarters

Minnesota looks to lure Amazon headquarters

"We want to find a city that is excited to work with us and where our customers, employees, and the community can all benefit", the company said on its search website, about why it was choosing its second headquarters through a public process.

Amazon said it plans on investing more than $5 billion and bringing as many as 50,000 "high-paying" jobs to the new campus, which will be known as HQ2. "Amazon HQ2 will bring billions of dollars in up-front and ongoing investments, and tens of thousands of high-paying jobs".

Amazon has began a search for a second USA headquarters which could house up to 50,000 members of staff. That complex covers 8.1 million square feet, with 33 buildings and 24 restaurants or cafes.

T-Mobile USA also made mention that "Like all plans, features may change or be discontinued at any time". Adding another line makes it $140 a month, adding another line after that (4 total) costs $160 a month.

The mail-order retail giant said on Thursday that the "HQ2" facility, wherever it may land, would host up to 50,000 employees and serve as the secondary base of operations to its existing Seattle headquarters. Amazon lists a number of "core preferences", including a 45-minute drive to an worldwide airport, mass transit (such as a tram or subway stop) connected directly to the site, and at least 500,000 square feet of office space available by 2019.

Asked if an Amazon headquarters could fit in Boston, Walsh said the city could make it happen.

Amazon has been growing rapidly in recent years, the Times said.

The police tried to disperse the protesters, but some of them attempted to entry the building, which prompted the clashes. Putin made the remarks Wednesday after meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Vladivostok, Russia.

The announcement of Amazon's second headquarters is a part of a larger effort from Amazon to grow its footprint at home and overseas.

Company founder Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post newspaper and the private space exploration firm Blue Origin, briefly overtook Bill Gates as the world's richest individual earlier this year due to a surge in Amazon's share price. Others may be more hesitant, after Amazon has already taken over large chunks of downtown Seattle, helping drive up housing costs in the area. Achieving that may entail major changes to the company's organizational structure once the new location is operational. Bids are due on October 19 and Amazon will select a location sometime next year.

Amazon said it will not view HQ2 as a satellite office for the company. According to its website for regions to pitch for the new site, Amazon is looking for a location that can provide staff for "software development and related fields".

If Congress approves the relief but additional money is not borrowed, "we're not going to be able to get that money to the state". In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, however, Mnuchin told CNBC on Thursday that the deadline could move up a few days.
