Amazon’s HQ2 Possibly Coming To Austin
Austin is apparently one of the top ranked spots for Amazon to pick for its 2nd headquarters. This will bring roughly 50,000 new jobs to the metro area. There will also be $5 Billion in investments brought to the winning city.
Amazon is looking at a bunch of factors in choosing the right city. Real estate prices, Taxes, Quality of life, education, and public transportation. Austin fits just about every one except the public transportation. We have it yes, but it is only buses and a small section of Metro Rail way.
