CARSON CITY, NV — The Nevada State Governor Brian Sandoval on Tuesday, September 12, said that he is hardly working with Nevada economic development officials to attract Amazon to the state for its proposed second headquarters project.

The e-commerce technology giant company on Thursday announced that it the firm is indeed planning to invest $5 billion in construction and operation of its second headquarters in the new location, which it is calling the “Amazon HQ2.”

The new headquarters, which is equal to its Seattle’s, would require as many as 50,000 full-time workers.

“We’re working on it,” Governor Sandoval said. “There are a lot of variables, but I think we already have a massive Amazon presence in the state, I think almost 2 million square feet as we speak, plus Zappos.”

“So there is already a big footprint here,” Sandoval added. “I know Amazon has had a positive experience in the state and I would think hopefully they would like favorably on any future expansion here.”

Representatives of the Nevada State Governor’s Office of Economic Development and the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance has recently said that they will be working together on a package for Amazon.

The e-commerce titan currently has its main headquarters stretch across 33 buildings in Seattle but the firm’s aggressive expansion means it is speedily running out of office space in the city.

“We expect HQ2 to be a full equal to our Seattle headquarters,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO, in a press statement. “Amazon HQ2 will bring billions of dollars in up-front and ongoing investments, and tens of thousands of high-paying jobs. We’re excited to find a second home.”

To date, the company has more than 380,000 employees worldwide, with about 40,000 of that figure are in Seattle.

Amazon said that it wants HQ2 to be in a metropolitan with a “stable and business friendly environment” and has more than 1 million residents. Amazon added that it also wants HQ2 to be erected within 45 minutes of an international airport.

“Amazon HQ2 will be Amazon’s second headquarters in North America. We expect to invest over $5 billion in construction and grow this second headquarters to include as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs – it will be a full equal to our current campus in Seattle.”

“In addition to Amazon’s direct hiring and investment, construction and ongoing operation of Amazon HQ2 is expected to create tens of thousands of additional jobs and tens of billions of dollars in additional investment in the surrounding community.”

Amazon states that the HQ2 will be an equivalent headquarters as to that of Seattle’s. It also said that it expects to recruit new teams and executives at the HQ2.
