Amazon Joins Other Fortune 15 Companies in Building New Headquarters
Amazon recently announced the start of their selection process to find the location for a second headquarters that could employ as many as fifty thousand (50,000) new full-time employees with an average compensation exceeding one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) over the next ten to fifteen years. This opportunity has communities scrambling to identify the incentive package and real estate site that can land this amazing deal. The initial requirement is for 500,000 square feet that will be open by 2019 that could grow up to 8 million square feet by 2027. The establishment of a second headquarters by Amazon will be the fifth company within the top 15 of the Fortune 500 to begin or complete a new headquarters project in 2017.
