IF they had built the airport instead of Great Park, then maybe.....that was the dumbest NIMBY-driven decision I've ever seen.

Are you insane? Irvine RE is better off with the GP versus another airport.

Real estate prices are a function largely of local incomes. Having an international airport close (San Jose has 3 - SJC, OAK and SFO) would potentially have catalyzed more corporate job growth. LAX distance restricts OC economic growth.

El Toro Airport would have severely depressed house values near/under the flight path, but I can definitely see how it would increase it in areas around it. Even better for areas that would have benefited from a John Wayne closure like Old Town Tustin and the Back Bay area.

And selfishly, since I fly over 50k miles a year, it would have been nice for business trips..

Boston in the lead?

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-09-12/amazon-is-said-to-weigh-boston-in-search-for-second-headquarters

It makes the most sense as housing is much cheaper than in San Jose while there is a smaller but similar talent pool, plus ~20 colleges and universities.

Amazon picks Atlanta for new logistics hub, locates it in Midtown's Atlanta Station.

Amazon is quietly building out a logistics technology and services office in Atlanta - a national supply chain hub and believed to be on the shortlist for the tech juggernaut's proposed $5 billion second headquarters.

Why not make the snd hq to Canada?

1, Its hard to obtain talent due to green card policies.
2, Cheaper labor
3, Not far from Seattle

Vancouver isn't cheaper than Seattle, last time I checked. Beautiful city, yeah, but not economically competitive. Ask a Vancouverite about FCB condos..

Which is why I suggested a paired campus of Detroit-London, Ontario or Buffal-Erie, Ontario

City of Amazon proposed to attract company’s HQ2 to Georgia

The latest local pitch to attract Amazon? Create a city of Amazon for the company’s planned expansion site.

The Stonecrest City Council voted 4-2 on Monday to de-annex 345 acres of land if the e-commerce giant picks the area for what the company calls HQ2, a corporate hub where Seattle-based Amazon says it will one day house 50,000 jobs.

The city’s resolution asks the Georgia General Assembly to form the city of Amazon on that land, located off Lithonia Industrial Boulevard and Coffee Road in DeKalb County.

What Cali offering?....

Read in one of the real estate trade journals that Amazon is currently negotiating 500,000s.f. of office space in Boston.  Not sure if that means anything.

So would most of the cities that made it to the second round.   Expensive means people want to live there...easier to attract and keep talent.

What do you guys think? I think either Atlanta or Austin?

Atlanta

I think Panda is onto something here.
