Gauging the Amazon Effect on New York and Virginia
"The Amazon effect is set to hit Long Island city in Queens, New York and crystal city and northern Virginia the locations, the company has chosen to split its second headquarters between and real estate firms are preparing for a real estate boom joining us now in our studio is Wall Street Journal reporter Keiko Morris Keiko, the Wall Street Journal has reported before the official announcement from Amazon that there was already speculative buying in some of those twenty finalists cities now that the winners have been chosen. What are you hearing from real estate firms in Long Island city and crystal city, you're hearing that there's a lot more inquiries people positioning themselves to basically get a lot of information very quickly. So they can act on it. This is regarding more of the commercial real estate offices, retail hotel, and so forth. But there's also a whole lot a happening. My colleague, Josh barb anelle wrote about this on the residential, siding and condo. Oh by and that's you're seeing that people go into contract, and and trying to close a lot faster. In fact, he had a story about the flurry of purchasing condos. I think over four days there was one hundred fifty condos went into contract or they had deals on. But in terms of the commercial side, you are seeing a lot of folks they're getting texts like if you're an owner of a property. Well, actually after each report that Amazon was homing in on these two places real estate brokers owners were getting texts from folks inquiries about their property. What are you going to do with it? And so clearly there's a lot of interest there and brokers also got text from folks who are outside of the industry typically saying I'd like to place money in Long Island city. So I'm glad you separated out office space versus residential because of big complaint from people who aren't happy about Amazon. Coming to where they live is thoughts about rising rent prices or the affordability of continuing to live in Long Island city or crystal city, for example, what can you tell us about the vacancy rate for office space, and then the residential concerns that people are expressing in terms of office vacancies both of these places. Crystal city and Long Island city had significant vacancy rates, you know, they were up there. Eighteen percent. That's that's fairly significant for different reasons. But Long Island city has been trying to accelerate its commercial development kind of catch up with a lot of the residential development. That happens over the last more than a decade, and I would say even for decades, the city has tried to boost commercial development and business growth in this area. And they've been making strides, but it's still coming along taking its time. And then crystal city was hit by some of the government drawing back and realize. -ment of certain services, and that's a sector where a lot of government agencies were were tenants and so- crystal city was in the midst also of this transition in trying to I guess redevelop and reposition itself as a place sort of modern, you know, with retail housing try to make it more vibrant, so Amazon coming along certainly exceleron for both of these places in transition will accelerate that process, I believe for the commercial side, and certainly for housing and residential definitely kick up demand in that area. But Keiko what does that mean for pricing? So obviously, the existing owners and investors and folks who are looking to get in are hoping that Amazon coming and the influx of other businesses that they're likely to bring will help boost.
What the Amazon HQ2 Cities Could Learn from Seattle
"Amazon dot com, which has long been based in Seattle will split its second headquarters between Long Island City, New York and crystal city in northern Virginia, Amazon's invasion will likely transform the neighborhoods for the better in quite a few ways. But will also bring new headaches the to new locations could probably take a lesson in this regard from Seattle. That's where we find the Wall Street Journal's Jay green who joins us via Skype j you refer to the Amazon, invasion Beit and Seattle or the two new sites as a prosperity bomb. This has been used to describe what happened to Seattle's downtown. Isn't that? Right. Yeah. In really the whole city. I mean, you know, I I've lived here for twenty years, and you know, it's estan Ishida. See what's happened to housing prices. People of certainly gotten rich selling their homes here after Emma's come in. And, you know, been plenty of new businesses that have opened up to support Amazon and the forty five thousand people in employs in the city. What was the biggest chain? Change that Amazon affected and Seattle was at the skyline or was it something else? Yeah. When there's a bunch boy. But the skyline is is the most noticeable certainly there's a neighborhood they first moved into downtown called south lake union that was cut hardscrabble ramshackle. There wasn't a whole lot there and flash forward ten years, and it's bunch of grieving buildings in nice restaurants young folks walking around, but in another wants to write it. It's an mistake. Well to see how much traffic has gotten congested really because of that influx of people downtown. And that's really a lot of that has to do with Amazon, right? Amazon's presence in Seattle's downtown created a series of headaches traffic jams transit nightmares. And I guess as you said, you know, these rising home prices have put homes or home buying out of the reach for many. Yeah. I mean, listen. Goes both ways. Right when I bought my house here twenty years ago, and I'm doing okay. But you know, I think about my kids is they're moving into adulthood can be really hard for them to buy a home in Seattle at this point unless they land some great job hasn't the downtown really been transformed by I mean, just Amazon workers it's sprung up basically, a whole bunch of new businesses to cater to them restaurants, the obvious one because it's something that nine Zony wind up going into and there'd been a bunch of great restaurants that have shown up downtown a lot of quality kinda lunch spots. But also really nice dinner spots to there's all kinds of service businesses that have emerged new banks downtown, and that sort of thing it's really a whole economy that has catered to this influx of people J with Seattle Amazon really wrote the book on how a company headquartered in the city's downtown lot of corporate headquarters have been located suburbs. Look at Seattle that's often the. As well. You know, when Microsoft moved here forty years ago little bit less than forty years ago, they decided to move to Redmond which is a suburb of Seattle, and they have a big campus there and they've expanded. Actually, they even have some operations in downtown Seattle in the neighboring city Bellevue Boeing when it emerged here. Many decades ago it really build plants in Everett, which is north of the city in Renton, which is south of the city. And so it is it doesn't really have a presence downtown. And that's really been the difference with Amazon, and it was very purposeful. Jeff basis talked about how they wanted the company to be downtown because the executives there thought it would be a lure to talent. And I think that's also one of the reasons why they've chosen the new locations urban places in young people tend to like in places Amazon's pick of Long Island city's generated a lot of controversy in the New York area. One criticism has been that the tax breaks dangled in front of Amazon were way, too generous, and that the money could otherwise have been used. Upgrade the city's infrastructure, especially here the subways was there any comparable sort of controversy in Seattle. Amazon is a big employer, and it sort of been part of the discussion in terms of building infrastructure. I think people have been frustrated over the years with the contributions Amazon has has made or not made Amazon has responded in some regards. There's a streetcar in downtown Seattle and Amazon purchased an extra streetcar to ease.
Amazon, Google Battle for High-Tech Talent
"Choose Long Island City New York in crystal city Virginia is it because the two metro areas have a large number of software developers and engineers from which to choose. Yeah. I think so the lesson here is, you know, they moved to these big east coast cities because that's where the largest volume of talent is interestingly enough, New York City is not particularly dense Intech talent. It's really no more tech heavy than anywhere else in the country, but it's the very dense human population. And therefore, there's the most people with these types of skills to choose from certainly anywhere outside of maybe Seattle and Silicon Valley where these businesses are have a presence. So that's why they're in New York. DC offers them actually little bit of the best of both worlds. There's actually pretty high concentration of technical workers in the DC area of people don't really think of it as a tech hob, but it is the defense hob and the defense industry employs a lot of these types of people. And it's a obviously a large major east coast city. So there's the sheer number of people that shoes from to. And that's what I think's really important with these two companies that set themselves apart people wanna work for Google people wanna work for Amazon. They don't need to advertise. All that much to get the workers. Someone else is smaller company fifty person company that thought will go to New York because I want this type of tectonic gonna have a lot harder time. They might be better off in a smaller city or near university where they can pick off one or two people, but Google Amazon, they're the Hemas they don't they don't need to do that. We've been talking for quite a while now about how there's a labor shortage. Are there concerns that Amazon and Google might not be able to learn of workers to New York City? Well, I think the reason they pick New York City is because they think that's what they have the best chance to lure workers to right? So in addition to having so many workers there you have that being a major magnet where people from universities all. Of the role, of course. But certainly up and down the east coast, I graduate from college. I want to move to New York. I wanna live in the big city. I think they felt they probably had a better chance to lure the talent there that somebody other cities they consider which include places like Indianapolis and Columbus, Ohio, Wall Street Journal labor and economics reporter, Eric Morath. Joining us from Washington. Thanks,
Spanish-language reporter faces deportation from U.S. after arrest at protest

Sorry about the HQ rejection, Los Angeles. You didn't get the part. We really wanted to move to Denver, but we also really wanted to get some work done each city has its own personal apology.

Amazon picks New York City, Washington D.C. area for new offices
"Amazon will build two new regional offices in the Long Island city neighborhood of Queens, New York and another one in the crystal city neighborhood of Arlington Virginia, just outside of Washington DC Amazon already has operations in both metropolitan areas. Amazon will make its existing operations in Nashville. It's east coast operations hub as well. So essentially there are three new locations for Amazon, none of them really a headquarters. I don't think hiring however will begin in two thousand nineteen with average salaries promised of one hundred fifty thousand dollars a year. New York state is giving Amazon one point five billion dollars in tax incentives. Arlington is giving five hundred seventy three million and Nashville one hundred two million. So as I understand it the offices that will be expanded in Long Island city. And and crystal city are some of Amazon's Amazon already employs at a fair amount of him plays. They're outside of Seattle headquarters and a lot of folks that that work in the bay area. So there are a lot of folks there as well. Now, you have other cities that were in the running to be the next new Amazon headquarters, you know, in some people say, well, wait a second. What did Amazon just kind of know that they were going to do this the whole time because these are two very obvious places to just expand rather than go into a new market in order to, you know, maybe, you You know. know, get more tax credits from governments who wanted to make sure that they didn't pull out of these areas entirely. Yeah. I don't know that that is the only purpose. I wonder if maybe that was a side effect that they weren't too concerned about like, hey, if we the New York and DC, anyway, we get all this data about all these other cities. Right. Yeah. That that can't hurt. Yeah. Because it does feel like they they did a lot of work to end up with the obvious conclusion of like, oh, well, we have thirty six three hundred sixty thousand square feet of space in Manhattan and a bunch of fulltime workers there and the third biggest location or the fourth biggest location. We have is Washington DC. Let's just go there because it's cheaper than San Francisco. That is one study I read on Recode is that the housing prices in both these places the Long Island city area of queens and the crystal city area, which is right next to national airport. It's the area that borders national airport south from the Pentagon that those are both more affordable places to find housing than Seattle or San
Amazon announces HQ2 in a split decision (The 3:59, Ep. 489)
"Welcome to the three fifty nine. I'm alfred. I'm Ben talks Rueben. If you haven't heard Amazon announced today that they are bringing HQ to to Long Island city in Queens, New York and crystal city, Arlington Virginia are Amazon. Reporter Ben FOX who've been has all the details on it. This is so shocking. I can't believe it. I think I okay. First of all the news at already been leaked a lot last week for multiple sources, the other issue that I'm sure a lot of people will want to quibble about is they're calling it three different North America headquarters. Oh, yes. Like, what is the headquarters? Any third one would be Nashville, Tennessee. No, so Washington like. Washington. Like, obviously Seattle the first one. There's also Nashville Tennessee is going to get five thousand people the other to the ones that were announced today are gonna get twenty five thousand employees each but Seattle is still the biggest with forty five thousand Amazon state. What was so appealing about Long Island city or crystal city, and there I'm sure they did I I was just like planting through their statements where they said a bunch of like positive stuff about this. The these locations it's pretty obvious why they wanted to go to both of these places. These two major centers of power in the east coast, the the DC area, obviously, Amazon has been trying to push a lot more into getting more government contracts. More defense contracts in New York. There's obviously a lot going on with media and entertainment in New York and Amazon being in Seattle as their primary headquarters as oppose to being in the valley means that they are you know, a flight away from that center of power. So. Plunking down twenty five thousand high paying employees in those two major areas. It's going to be pretty significant for the company with our ni financial incentives into this. Yes, very much. So I know that Andrew Cuomo governor Cuomo at one point seven changes name to Amazon Cuomo aches. Okay. First of all like don't expect politicians to act any differently than they normally would. Because if you're expecting them to not shell themselves for twenty five thousand jobs or fifty thousand jobs, which was the initial offer. Then, you know, you're being ridiculous. They would I'm sure Nashville is even very very excited about five thousand jobs. The the problem is in the joke of it is is that this was supposed to be an equal like a co equal to Seattle. And instead it's being separated by multiple states. So let calling two different headquarters twenty five thousand each it's different than what was initially promised. And so a lot of people, and it's also exactly where a lot of people would have expected them to locate. Anyway, so so what were the financial incentives are up a little bit? So New York is offering one point five billion dollars in incentives Virginia's offering five hundred seventy five million dollars incentives. Nashville got away easy with only one hundred million in. Puntive, and that's four creating high paying jobs. I think in the paperwork or the in the terms for an Amazon New York, it was a forty eight thousand dollars for every job that they bring that pays more than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars right temporarily. Obviously, you know, at some point they are not going to get that and sons, and there was another part that mentioned, you know, in lieu of paying taxes, it would be developing infrastructure within Long Island city in queens. Not sure if I'm big fan of that deal. I don't know how many schools Amazon is making or how much it's helping with the subway or police in New York, but I feel like that is something that, you know community. Organizers have always been annoyed about in terms of steel. I know in Newark, they had basically given them the largest possible tax break had they gone with newer, actually, Maryland gave them the biggest with point five billion work offered the second highest publicly known one with seven billion the. Yeah. Like, there's there are a lot of questions that people. Always ask as far as like, this is one of the wealthiest companies in the world. It's one of the biggest companies in the world. Why are we giving them? I wish I could get paid one point five billion dollars to move to New York to do exactly what you were planning on doing in the first place. So you know, that's all the time. We have for today show if you liked what you heard check us out on CNN. I'm out for dang. I'm Ben FOX riven extra listening.
