Hey Amazon – How’s About Newark?

They want to build a second distribution center headquarters campus and have some requirements.

HQ2 could be, but does not have to be:

  • An urban or downtown campus
  • A similar layout to Amazon’s Seattle campus
  • A development-prepped site. We want to encourage states/provinces and communities to think creatively for viable real estate options, while not negatively affecting our preferred timeline

Site Requirements:

  • Proximity to population center: 30 Miles
  • Proximity to International airport: Within approx. 45 Minutes
  • Proximity to major highways and arterial roads: Not more than 1-2 Miles
  • Close to major arterial roads to provide optimal access
  • Access to mass transit: At site
  • Direct access to rail, train, subway/metro, bus routes

Hm, sounds like Newark to me.  Airport, workers, easy access to all means of transport, highways, the entire Northeast, hell everywhere.
