When Amazon dropped the bombshell of their plans to select a North American city to build their second corporate headquarters on, it was assumed that only major cities in the USA and Canada would seriously present proposals to host the e-commerce juggernaut.
The Stonecrestcity council adopted the resolution on Monday to create the enclave of Amazon, Ga.as incentive for the Seattle-based company to build its second world headquarters in the newly-incorporated city.
Amazon, Georgia doesn't quite have the same ring as say, Toyota City - headquarters to Toyota Motors in Japan - but it definitely makes for a unique (if desperate) offer.
Many major cities want Amazon to choose them for its expansion, but none have the branding opportunity his city is offering with plans for Amazon, Georgia, Stonecrest Mayor Jason Lary said.
If you've never heard of Stonecrest, Georgia, you're not alone: the town on the outer fringes of Atlanta only voted itself into existence a couple of years ago.
"We want to encourage states and communities to think creatively for viable real estate options, while not negatively affecting our preferred timeline", said Amazon in a list of preferences that it is looking for in a location.
Other optional requirements for the second headquarters include an urban or downtown campus, a similar layout to Amazon's Seattle campus, and a development-prepped site.
It also brings to mind Japan's Toyota City, which was once a thriving economic area which those fresh from college aimed to work in, at least before the global recession seriously impacted sales.
Over 50 cities are to submit proposals to the company such as Boston, Chicago, Baltimore, Houston, Orlando, and New York City. To sweeten the deal, they are taking a page from the Japanese city formerly known as Koromo, renamed since 1959 to Toyota after Toyota Motors which has several manufacturing plants in that area.
Cities have until October 19 to send in their pitches to Amazon.
