Obviously, I’m rooting for Newark in all of this. The benefits are quite large to the community as a whole. Though, I am certainly wary of the downsides that could come with it.

Prudential built itself a new headquarters in Newark which left their old place abandoned. It’s possible Amazon would only have to do some touch-up work to modernize the internals and they’d be good to go...

Unless you are referencing South Kearny, which has no mass transit, streets in terrible shape and no residential area, I’m unsure of what you are referencing.

My guess is going to be Atlanta. The airport is better and the cost of living a lot less than anywhere in the NYC tri state area. But I'll still keep my fingers crossed.

Atlanta pulled itself out with its bigotry towards the trans community and their absurd stance with Delta.

With Amazon’s Audible residing in Newark already, I don’t know if that is a hindrance or a benefit. I'd like to think it is a benefit.

Hopefully New Jersey is paying attention. Amazon is bucking up.

the location of their warehouses will have little to do with the location of their HQ2. the jobs at HQ2 will require web developers, finance people, marketing folks - these jobs will be filled by recent college grads, not by people working in the distribution centers.

i think Newark has a good shot. it's more "up and coming" than any of the other locations. they can tap into the NYC job market without physically being in Manhattan

I don't know if this is indicative of anything related to Amazon's search, but there are four of their fulfillment centers right off of exit 12 on the turnpike. That's a nice little cluster.

I am surprised that they didn't think to offer the vast south side 4 distribution vehicles to hop onto 78, coupled with a transportation link [Lightrail] to Penn sta.

Amazon could literally be it's own City within the city of Newark!!
[none of the other places that are in the finals could offer that as easily]

Newark releases Amazon HQ2 proposal highlighting the city's diversity, tech infrastructure

The New Jersey city released the document after a February lawsuit requested access to the proposal. Amazon is expected to make a decision this year.

by - April 26, 2018 1:59 PM

On Wednesday, the city released its proposal to host the e-commerce giant's second headquarters after resident Steven Wronko sued for access to it in February. The proposal, titled "Yes, Newark," is more than 200 pages long and highlights the city's diverse population, tech infrastructure and transportation systems. It also offers suggested locations for the headquarters and touts more than 50 pages of letters of recommendations. 

The city redacted the financial incentives it is offering the Seattle e-tailer. (Here are parts onetwo and three of Newark's bid.) 

Amazon has been on the hunt for a city to host its second headquarters since September and plans to make a selection later this year. In January, the company unveiled 20 finalists after vetting proposals from 238 communities in the US, Canada and Mexico. The company has said HQ2 will match its Seattle headquarters in size and importance, and the company expects to spend more than $5 billion on the project.

Webmaster please delete response #27 from psyopit it has no bearing on the topic. It is offending to the citizens of New Jersey.


It is sad how crazy, reactionary and unhinged some people on this site have become. We could be talking about liking or disliking vanilla ice cream... and some whacko would call you a racist for not including chocolate ice cream as part of the conversation.


I simply replied about 2 people on this message board who are both known for posting bigoted comments, one of which constantly posts things that are questionably factual at best.
A bit harsh probably but not untrue.


It is your opinion that my comments are bigoted, personally, I believe your opinions are bullying. Anyone that has a different point of view you attack. In a plural society people do have different opinions. This country is not ISIS where only one set of facts are recognized. So lets keep it that way.


Your past posts speak for themselves so I don't need to defend anything.

Sorry for the off topic to others reading this, I'm done responding in this thread.


And you continue to be a self-righteous douche bag. Thanks for playing along in the game. Sorry you have no self control... though it is not surprising.

7 reasons why Newark has a shot at winning Amazon

Joan Verdon, Staff Writer
Jan. 18, 2018

[FILTERED]
Take a quick tour of the new Amazon Books store that just opened at the Westfield Garden State Plaza.

Newark has made it to the finals in the contest to be picked as the home of the second headquarters of e-commerce giant Amazon. And even though it's up against metropolitan powerhouses like Miami, New York and Boston, there are some good reasons why the odds could be in Newark's favor.

1. Planes, trains, ships and automobiles
Newark checks all the transportation and infrastructure boxes Amazon is looking for in a headquarters city, unlike some of the other 19 contenders on the list. It has a major international airport, it has a port that handles most of the container ships arriving on the East Coast, and it is close to major highways. It has subways and other trains that link it to Manhattan.

2. New York without New York prices
Newark would give Amazon executives a perfect perch from which to mastermind new ways to deliver to, and sell to, the residents of the Big Apple, the ultimate urban test case for any retailer, but without Big Apple rents or traffic jams.

3. We're the warehouse state
As Amazon knows all too well, New Jersey is a dream location for e-commerce warehouses and fulfillment centers. It has opened a number of huge warehouses here over the past decade and is looking to open more. While the new headquarters doesn't need to be near Amazon warehouses, the proximity gives executives an easy way to test new logistics innovations.

4. Access to talented workers
Newark has colleges that offer Amazon a feeder system of some 60,000 young people looking for jobs, as well as access to tech workers from New York and research hubs in Princeton and New Brunswick.

5. Return on investment
Amazon is smart about money, and investing in land and buildings in Newark is more likely to yield a return than in cities where the land prices and rents are much higher. Newark also has more space available for redevelopment than many of the other contenders.

6. Don't bet against Booker
Newark booster Sen. Cory Booker can be mighty persuasive. Starting with his years as mayor and continuing while in the Senate, he has convinced lots of businesses to take a chance on Newark. His current star power could help seal the deal.

7. Seven billion reasons
Finally, there is the little matter of the tax incentives. New Jersey has promised Amazon $7 billion in state and local tax breaks if they come to Newark. Gov. Chris Christie made that offer, and his successor, Phil Murphy, has spoken out against corporate tax breaks. But Murphy on Thursday seemed to be backing the Amazon bid, saying in a statement that "we are going to continue to press our case for Amazon to come to Newark."

Good point Yvonne, many companies see the advantage that you noticed. Bindi the frozen Italian dessert import company relocated there from Totawa, they are on the Bellville Turnpike and open to the public.


They are open to the public? They had a retail shop when they were in Belleville, I didn't know the new location has a store. You've been there?

I think the Bellville is their warehouse distribution for local deliveries. They used to be in Totawa, N.J. I sent you a PM with details Monroe.

You cannot engage in a conversation without spewing hate, get over it. I have lived in Hudson County probably longer than you and I know the area. I worked in Kearney for a year and am familiar with the area.

When you have nothing positive to say, you attack. Typical liberal! Besides, Kearny is much safer than Newark and is just as close to New York City.

My guess is Pittsburgh. Labor and land will be less expensive; several tech companies are already there; they are pro-development and pro-tech.

I'm not sure how it is for outdoor recreation, but it can't be much worse than Newark. There are some big state and national parks about 2 hours away by car. Lake Erie is also about a 2 hour drive.

There are acres of vacant land in Kearny, it has its own heliport and is very close to JC and Newark. Swamp, well parts of Hoboken and JC are built on swamp land.

Obviously, neither one of you understands what is important in deciding where to build a corporate headquarter for a technology company.

With the many choices on the list it's doubtful others do either, so please enlighten us bod.


Well, since you asked, I will try and disabuse you of your ignorance, a likely futile endeavor.

For starters, Amazon was quite clear about what it wants/needs in selecting a location for its new HQ2. Here’s a list of those requirements:
- existing buildings of at least 500,000 sf, and enough site space to grow to 8 MM sf.
- stable, business friendly taxes and regulations, coupled with local and state incentives
- strong labor pool, particularly in tech (of course) and, specifically, a strong university system offering relevant degrees, as well as K-12 schools that offer computer science programs.
- on site access to mass transit, easy access to an international airport (within 45 minutes) and major highways (less than two miles) with multiple transit options (including pedestrian and bike access)
- streamlined, quick building approval/permitting process (good luck with this one in NJ!) to ensure ability to be able to being construction almost immediately after selection
- likelihood of "culture fit" — which they defined as a diverse population, strong higher-education system, and local government that is “eager and willing to work with the company"
- and, last, the one requirement that really worked against many proposals: good quality of life, which they defined as a location where people want to live, that offers cultural and recreational opportunities, with high quality day to day living, low crime, availability of affordable housing.

To think that any given city, particularly Kearny, could be a contender just because it has "lots" of available space for construction demostrates a complete lack of grasp of what is being asked or expected.


See the article on Bloomberg listing pros/cons of the top 20 contenders.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/article ... ow-20-contenders-stack-up

One point it makes about cities with lots of space and cheap real estate that applies to Kearny: "The housing is cheap for a reason."

Good point Yvonne, many companies see the advantage that you noticed. Bindi the frozen Italian dessert import company relocated there from Totawa, they are on the Bellville Turnpike and open to the public.
