Charlotte is looking to be the location for Amazon’s second $5 Billion headquarters.

The project would add over 50,000 high paying jobs to the area and has the possibility to expand over 8 million square ft. in the next decade.  Charlotte meets all criteria for a bidding city with having over a million people in population, it’s within 45 minutes of an international airport, and is able to attract technical talent.  Amazon has yet to comment on where they plan to make their new home at.  All proposals are due on Oct. 19th.

Let us know what you would think of Amazon making their new headquarters hear in Charlotte @theMRLShow.
