Foss: Amazon deal is too costly

"With an average salary of $150,000 per year for the tens of thousands of new jobs Amazon is creating in Queens, economic opportunity and investment will flourish for the entire region", said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in a statement released with Amazon's announcement.

But most experts agree that Amazon's arrival marks a paradigm shift.

Julie Niederhoff, an associate professor of supply chain management at Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management, told Transport Topics that the Nashville center will be integral to Amazon's logistics structure.

"It's helped us recruit prominent IT companies like Cognizant, who will be creating 600 good jobs in our City", she said.

The agreement with Arlington County also pledges assistance in securing the necessary approval for a helipad on Amazon's new campus. We shouldn't pay Amazon for the privilege of a new office campus.

"We know that nearly three-fourths of our candidates say that salary is important", said Patel, whose firm regularly surveys thousands of Amazon's job applicants each year. "It puts a semi-headquarters in two, what are really key areas for them". In theory at least, the NY and Washington subway systems can ease housing price pressures by enabling workers to spread out. Real estate agents say they're hearing from investors who'd like to become landlords and from sellers who've made a decision to pull their homes off the market, sit back and wait for prices to go up, up, up.

While the NY deal is worth more for Amazon, it also comes with more requirements than the Virginia agreement.

Saunders said that "the sheer size and scale of Amazon and its interest across many areas of technology, retail, and various consumer services" suggests a need for multiple locations.

In choosing those two sites, Amazon emphasized the ability to attract "world-class talent", as well as access to airports and public transportation. "The team did a great job selecting these sites, and we look forward to becoming an even bigger part of these communities", Bezos is quoted as saying in his own Day One blog.

"What they are adding now, as power units, are local delivery units".

"We just caught a huge breath of fresh air - it's like someone just resuscitated us", Austad said.

My Ut Trinh , 50, of Caboolture, north of Brisbane, Queensland , appeared calm in the dock after spending the night in custody. Jon Wacker, a police official said: "This has probably been one of the most trying investigations that I've been part of".

Rockets will move on from Carmelo Anthony
The Thunder traded Anthony last summer to the Hawks, who then bought him out. "Melo's been great here", Paul said. The New York Times had a sourced report Sunday saying Anthony has been notified that he will soon be waived.

"It's exciting because it will bring more people to fill all those highrises they are building", she said while walking her dog.

NY state senator Mike Gianaris also complained about "secrecy" behind the deal, vowed that opponents would "go to court if we have to" to renegotiate the agreement and demanded a consumer boycott of Amazon.

Mercatus Center senior fellow Veronique de Rugy, American Action Forum President Douglas Holtz-Eakin and Fox News contributor Deroy Murdock discusses the backlash mounting over Amazon's decision to split its second headquarters between NY and Virginia.

It's impossible to know the full scope of city data that Amazon picked up, since most cities have kept their bids secret.

"There was anxiety in Silicon Valley that there are all these up-and-coming tech hubs that would challenge them", Terrazas said.

A new website set up to promote the new area -NationalLanding.com - by JBG Smith, a real estate company that will be Amazon's partner in building out the new headquarters, called the area a "newly defined interconnected and walkable neighborhood that encompasses Crystal City, the eastern portion of Pentagon City and the northern portion of Potomac Yard".

Stephen Moret, head of the state's economic development agency, said the per-job figure is not even in the top 10 of what the state has previously paid to other companies.

The selections of Arlington and Queens come with a price tag.

"The Virginia Tech Innovation Campus in Alexandria will be a source of talent, research, partnerships, discoveries and economic impact", President Tim Smith said.

The suspense is over as Amazon made it official yesterday that its headquarters expansion will be to Arlington, Virginia and to New York City.

Amazon could not be reached for comment as of publication time on Wednesday.
