Brooklyn’s Pitch to Attract Amazon

Brooklyn has stepped into the competition to attract Amazon’s planned second headquarters. The $470-billion tech company, based in Seattle, is reportedly considering cities across the U.S. from Denver to Boston.

Several top Brooklyn landlords have joined together to sell Amazon on the borough. Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce President Andrew Hoan are reportedly sending Amazon an open letter, recommending the borough.

“Brooklyn’s innovation coast from Williamsburg to Sunset Park has numerous opportunities for a campus-like environment with an ecosystem of academic institutions, a skilled labor force, bedroom communities and culture,” said Andrew Kimball, the CEO of Industry City, a 6.5-million-square-foot waterfront complex owned by Jamestown and a group of partners in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood.
