It has been reported that Amazon is seriously close to naming one of four New Jersey cities as the site for its second headquarters, located on the East Coast. This is really big stuff for the Garden State.
The four finalist cities are identified to be: Newark, Jersey City, New Brunswick, and Camden.
These final four have been called upon to provide additional information to Amazon.
The next steps will be for the New Jersey Economic Development Authority to vet these applications and then provide them to Governor Chris Christie, who will submit them to Amazon.
Most likely some of the details of these cities will include logistics, access points, highways, real estate information, parking, housing, other amenities and functionalities, all of which will lend to Amazon’s final decision.
The competition for Amazon’s new headquarters has been of intense interest to the state, which has seen a number of other companies move away due to New Jersey’s high real estate taxes, real estate prices and climate.
There are a number of reasons why New Jersey is going to fare better than most states, some of which are the state’s highly educated workforce, its highway system, access to large eastern metropolitan centers and airports.
It has been projected that Amazon’s second headquarters can be expected to bring as many as 50,000 jobs to the Garden State and potentially at $5 billion in spending to the area that its selects.
