Amazon announced Thursday it's searching for a city to host the new "HQ2" facility, which will cost at least $5 billion to build and operate. Amazon prefers to open the headquarters in a suburban or urban area with more than 1 million people. It's looking for a community that "thinks big" and a location that will attract technical talent. Cities and regional economic development organizations have been invited to submit proposals, and they will likely scramble to offer incentives and tax breaks for Amazon to consider their area. A number of cities have already expressed interest in the possibility of Amazon's new headquarters coming to town.
