The City of Hamilton is throwing its hat into the “Amazon” ring, to be considered for their new, second corporate headquarters dubbed Amazon HQ2.
In a unanimous Council vote, the City confirmed that we have the people, the infrastructure, the talent and the resolve to host HQ2.
“This represents a significant opportunity that our team is focused on pursuing,” says Mayor Eisenberger. “The economic and creative transformation of our city aligns perfectly with Amazon’s expansion plans.”
When reviewing Amazon’s request for proposal, the City looked closely, both at the attributes of the type of city they were seeking as well as the technical and land requirements. Considering a number of these key elements, the City sees its strength on a multitude of fronts as a solid match for Amazon’s requirements and business drivers.
If it transpires, building HQ2 in Hamilton would create 50,000 jobs in the next ten to fifteen years and $5 billion in capital expenditures.
