Where will Amazon HQ2 be located?

Tuesday, September 12th, 2017

Speculation has been growing regarding the likely location for “Amazon HQ2″, the online giant’s second company headquarters in North America.

In a statement issued last week, Amazon said that HQ2 will be “the full equal” to existing headquarters in Seattle.

The company expects to invest over $5bn in construction and to grow HQ2 to “include as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs”.

Amazon added that it was opening the Amazon HQ2 Request for Proposal (“RFP”) – and local and state government leaders interested in learning more about how they can bring Amazon to their community can visit www.amazon.com/amazonHQ2.

Amazon said that in choosing the location for HQ2, it has a “preference” for:

  • 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.

A number of media outlets have sized up the relative merits of different US cities based on these criteria. But there has also been speculation that Amazon may consider a city in Canada or Mexico.
