"We expect HQ2 to be a full equal to our Seattleheadquarters", Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO, said in a released statement. The new headquarters is expected to come with $5 billion worth of investment and will create up to 50,000 jobs, with an average salary north of $100,000.
Bezos and U.S. President Donald Trump aren't exactly fans of one another, and setting up a second headquarters with all the capabilities of the first just over the Canadian border could give Bezos additional political leverage.
Amazon's current headquarters spans 8.1 million square feet and features a whopping 33 buildings, along with 24 restaurants and cafes.
For now, it's anybody's guess where Amazon will plop down its second headquarters. Only last month, it closed on a deal to lease an additional 13,500 square meters of office space there. It's looking for a community that "thinks big" and a location that will attract technical talent.
Amazon is hunting for a second home outside of its main Seattle headquarters. And the projected employment of as many as 50,000 is 10 times the number of workers Toyota has at its new campus. The company is calling the development HQ2. The project, for which it is soliciting bids through October 19, would be as complete a headquarters as its Seattle base, which it claims brought 53,000 jobs to the city as well as a almost $26 billion payroll.
Economic incentives and tax breaks from the county and the state will also undoubtedly be involved - Amazon has stated that will be a determining factor.
The new location "will be a complete headquarters for Amazon-not a satellite office", according to the company, which added that it would hire new teams and executives for HQ2, and also allow some executives based in Seattle to choose either location. Despite the quick turnaround, responses to Amazon are due on October 19, Pennington said the state will be ready to pitch Maryland's advantages. Achieving that may entail major changes to the company's organizational structure once the new location is operational.
