New North RFI respondents:
Many of you are aware of the recent announcement by Amazon that they intend to locate a second headquarters campus-facility (similar in scope to that of their current facility in Seattle) somewhere in North America.

In place of the normal spreadsheet of listed and applicable site criteria, I’m shipping along the full rfp. I’m doing that because the project is significant in scope—so much so, that we would all need to be working together on any response to meet the critical preferences included in the proposal.

Please read through the rfp; if you feel that you have a real estate solution, let me know and we’ll strategize on next steps. Without a real estate solution, there simply isn’t a path forward. Please reply upon receipt, as we need to let the WEDC know if we’re going to try to take a run at this.
