Amazon is looking to expand with a second headquarter and is seeking bids from North American cities.
This is huge because this headquarter office space will be worth north of $5 billion dollars. Not only will this project generate some revenue for the city of Vancouver but will create jobs for about 50K employees.
Vancouver’s major Robertson tweeted support for Vancouver’s bid last week: “Great news! Amazon would be [a] fantastic addition to Vancouver’s world-class innovation ecosystem.”
The Amazon team currently resides at the TELUS garden office tower so I guess they love Vancouver enough to consider it as a future permanent home!
