Cowtown Amazon 2nd Best HQ???

Here's something for the creative class to contemplate while they're waiting for those tech jobs to manifest and wondering whatever happened to American retail. Take a look:

Prime real estate: Amazon looks for 2nd headquarters, KCMO plans to submit a bid

NEW YORK - Amazon, bursting out of its Seattle headquarters, is hunting for a second home. Must haves: A prime location, close to transit, with plenty of space to grow. The company said Thursday that it will spend more than $5 billion to build another headquarters in North America to house as many as 50,000 employees.

Pittsburgh, the former steel capital, boasts more affordable space for a campus than some other potential competitors.

Average rent for one bedroom. $740 per month.

Will they really consider Killa City?

Amazon says "a highly educated labor force is critical and a strong university system is required."

Well that pretty much puts KCMO out of the running.

Yes, coming on the heels of the airport terminal triumph for Sly and the gang as well as the business acumen demonstrated with Mike's hotel deal, I'm sure Amazon has KCMO high on the list.
And Jeff Bezos would surely be no match for the clever negotiators, business geniuses, crafty attorneys, and the rest of the 12th and Oak gang who have brought the city those renaissance "projects", the breathless excitement of a 2-mile long trolley, and the endless subsidies shoveled out the door to anyone with a pulse.
Sly and the gang will walk out the door wearing nothing but big smiles and their socks.

The well-educated young people who work at engineering firms here show that KC would be great for Amazon.

They're not only well-educated but also hard working and honest.

Tony Botello is right. Fuck Kansas City. Demolish any and all developments and use all money to round up homos and throw them off the rooftops.

How much more money is sLIE and fat boy Troy gonna throw down the drain to try and lure them here? We have to hire some consulting firm for 3 million dollars here and two million dollars for a law firm, the give away never ends with sLIE. Not his money so he doesn't care. We'll get them to look here, wine and dine them so sLIE can eat more free food and get even fatter then they'll look on the Kansas side and move into the sprint buildings that are empty and Johnson county doesn't have to spend a dime!!! lmao!!!
