Could Memphis Really Land Amazon's Second Headquarters?

Everyday Memphians also drummed up support in recent days through the "Memphis Delivers" campaign, showing off "Memphis Delivers" signs and using the "Memphis Delivers" Twitter hashtag to showcase what makes the bluff city unique and appealing.

"The number one economy in Victoria is the knowledge economy", he said.

In a news release issued by the city of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, the political entities said they were joined in making the bid by "numerous local partners", in addition to GCP, Team NEO and the state of Ohio.

Ennis said the area has a lot to offer Amazon, including its infrastructure, transportation options and its proximity to Chicago.

Some cities refuse to give in.

Mr Baldridge said that during the call he vented frustration to Mr Trump about a USA military survivor benefits programme. Trump is also not the first president to be tardy in sending a promised check.

Winnipeg said in its bid that existing federal and provincial tax credits would amount to $1.76-billion in cash incentives for Amazon, and said the City of Winnipeg "would be at the table" to discuss additional tax financing for its real estate development, which could achieve "significant savings for the project". Credit ratings and research company Moody's has ranked Austin as the most likely to win based on its labor pool, costs of doing business and quality of life, among other criteria. More than 50 cities across the USA will be on edge waiting for their announcement. The company is looking to invest $5 billion in construction for a new campus that will employ up to 50,000 people. "The Lake County Council encourages Amazon to locate its second headquarters in Northwest Indiana".

But Saxton said there is some risk to a bid not being public enough.

"What is their assessment at Amazon as to whether that is going to be a huge factor that will hurt them because steps will be taken by the administration to punish them for even thinking about this", said Tory. Amazon initially plans to start phase I work on 500,000-square-feet of space by 2019 but could expand up to 8,000,000-square-feet beyond 2027.

Amazon's instructions to bidders say that finding a suitable physical site is of "paramount importance" in its decision.

The Toronto bid also offers nine large locations in suburban areas surrounding the city, stretching from Ajax in the east to Burlington in the west.

Amazon is expected to reveal a short list of 20 to 30 cities later this year and announce its choice in 2018.
