The Dallas & Fort Worth Chambers are working together to bundle area pitches into a combined, regional pitch which must be turned into Amazon before the October 19th deadline. The 2 chambers are coordinating the north Texas effort to entice Amazon’s 2nd headquarters location to the DFW area. HQ2 is expected to create more than 50,000 jobs and represent a direct $5 billion dollar investment into the local economy.
More than 12 North Texas cities, with 30 – 50 specific site proposals, made the internal deadline to be included in the regional pitch. Lewisville has 2 development sites being proposed: Castle Hills on the eastern edge of Lewisville is one of the areas to make a pitch and the 2nd location proposed by Lewisville is undisclosed, but thought to be in the southwestern portion of the city (Vista Ridge Mall site which was recently sold at auction?) Allen proposed 2 sites, one being included in a project there called The Strand. Frisco is submitting at least 6 site proposals along the Tollway. Dallas is submitting 4 including one put forth by the Texas Bullet Train group which would have them locate in the Cedars area of Dallas and help to create a super economy between Dallas and Houston. Fort Worth suggests 8 sites including on the banks of the Trinity River in Ft Worth. Plano is pitching 6 possible sites including their historic downtown. McKinney has a proposal, Arlington and Irving met the deadline as well. Carrollton sent in 2 sites and Grapevine sent in a site proposal including land owned by DFW Airport. Denton submitted 3 site proposals – one north, one south and one in downtown Denton.
