City of Frisco, Texas/Twitter Around 50 North American cities are vying to become the next home of Amazon, which announced earlier this month that it will build a second headquarters in an undetermined location. With the new campus, called HQ2, the e-commerce giant will bring 50,000 new jobs, making the offer one of the largest corporate-civic opportunities in recent American history. "Our city’s only about 60% built out, so we’ve got a lot of available land where we can build to suit," he said. In Amazon's initial announcement, it said it's looking for at least a million people, an international airport, "special incentive legislation" (which could mean local subsidies or tax breaks), among other things.
