  1. Amazon HQ2

    These U.S. cities have the best chance of being Amazon’s second headquarters We created a select list of cities with over a million people that have a chance of getting Amazon’s attention. We compared them on a number of criteria, including tech talent, airport travel time, office prices, housing costs and population. Take a look: https://www.recode.net/2017/9/9/16278136/amazon-jeff-bezos-top-cities-new-second-headquarters

    Mayor David Tomita the reason NN inc. moved to Charlotte is to be near CLT. I don't think Johnson City can fix that.
  3. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I will be happy what ever they put up as long as I don't have to pay for it.
  4. Amazon HQ2

    I still say that Amazon will pick a city in the Eastern time zone due to the fact that would expand their HQ's hours to 12 hours a day. Denver is only 1 hour ahead of Seattle time and wound give then only 9 hour HQ day.

    Out side of Atlanta, Charlotte Douglas International Airport , it is #2 busiest in the southeast, now 11 busiest airport in USA and 25 busiest airport in the world. CATS and the airport are looking at ways to provide rail service to the airport , plus future rail plans to the River District from the airport. RDU is a midsize airport that does not service as many cities in the USA and Europe as CLT. Amazon get its workers from many colleges on the west coast not just in Seattle. There are some big name college that are not far from Charlotte that amazon can recruit from. Has developers that can handle Amazon building needs, http://www.wbtv.com/story/36350410/potential-for-amazon-hq2-puts-charlotte-leadership-to-work-on-proposal
  6. The State of Higher Education in Charlotte

    Looks like UNCC has passed ECU, which has 28,962 this fall.

    I think Charlotte is the only city in North Carolina that has developers that can handle a project like this. I feel that Charlotte chances are just as good as any other city. It makes sense to put the HQ2 in the Eastern Time zone. This would give Amazon max time of 12 hours a day. I believe that the HQ2 will go to a city in the Southern USA, Atlanta or Charlotte. I do not think Raleigh has the developers beside Kane that could handle a project like this.

    I rest my above post, any company in Seattle would be foolish not to make plans now.

    Tornadoes can happen in many places, even here in Charlotte. Hurricanes can flood.

    Why Amazon is looking at the east coast for Hq2. A full rip of the Cascadia subduction zone would be a devastating event up and down the West Coast. The subduction zone extends from Eureka, California, to mid-Vancouver Island. A Cascadia event could cause up to a 9.0 magnitude quake with intense shaking lasting up to five minutes. The shaking would level un-reinforced buildings and roadways, sever utility lines and rupture gas and oil pipelines. About 20 minutes later, a tsunami would hit the West Coast and cause destruction similar to the March 2011 megaquake in Japan. Up to 13,000 people could die. https://patch.com/washington/seattle/risk-cascadia-quake-elevated-puget-sound-slow-slip-event-begins I think any city on the coast will be out due rising seas. That leaves a few cities that could meet their needs. Amazon is looking for a stable place from earth quakes and floods.

    Charlotte Douglas International Airport is our Ace in the hand.

    The only east coast city that beats Charlotte on an airport is Atlanta. From what I have read, they want a large airport near by.
  13. Tryon Place - Crescent project at Tryon and Stonewall

    I will be glad when Crescent starts this building. I an not going to fuss on how it looks.
