  • City of Stonecrest competing for Amazon's new headquarters

Amazon didn't air any grievances with its hometown in announcing the search for a second headquarters.

KINGSTON, N.Y. Industrial Development Agency officials are doubtful that Ulster County is in the running for a proposed second Amazon headquarters and distribution center.

And more recently, Bisnow picked the brain of John Boyd, principal of The Boyd Company-an worldwide leader in corporate site selection, based in New Jersey-who said Atlanta will likely be "among Amazon's top five considerations".

Premier Kathleen Wynne has even brought on former bank executive Ed Clark to lead a task force with the goal of landing the project somewhere in the province.

In a video released by the city, Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney said "Frisco is the ideal fit for HQ2". Bruce Rauner's senior communications strategy director.

Chicago could be a favorable location for the second headquarters because of its various universities, central location in the USA and acces to a strong transportation system, said Matthew Ragas, an associate professor in the College of Communications at DePaul University.

Holcomb says regional leaders are organizing their efforts to submit a package to Amazon by the deadline.

"Chicago is clearly the more important", Rauner said, "but we've got to make sure that we're positioned to benefit IL if St. Louis ends up being very competitive". "But the home run for us and the real focus is given metro Chicago".

On Thursday, Emanuel declined to directly answer a question about whether it would be hard to work with Rauner, whom he frequently has been at odds with. Information from the company states there would be 33 buildings on the site amounting to 8.1 square feet of space that would have a construction cost of $5.7 billion.

Emanuel declined to discuss what incentives Amazon would be offered to pick Chicago.

On Monday, Rauner cited Illinois' comparatively low income-tax rate as an advantage for recruiting business. The Seattle-based company is looking for a city with more than one million people, a stable and business-friendly environment, and the potential to attract strong technical talent, according to Amazon's request for proposal.

Plans for a newly constructed headquarters should be on parcels of at least 100 acres, according to the proposal.

It has set an October 19 deadline for confidential proposals. A selection is expected some time next year.
