Amazon Tells Miami: Sign HQ2 Docs

Amazon has requested Miami city officials execute new documents in order to proceed with the next stage of HQ2 negotiations.

The exact nature of the documents has not been revealed, but the request came after Amazon announced Miami to be one of the 20 finalist cities for the new headquarters.

Amazon executives are also said to be visiting Miami.

Miami commissioners are being asked to retroactively authorize execution of the documents at a meeting scheduled for February 8. According to the resolution, Miami’s City Manager has already signed the new paperwork, and other city officials also need both retroactive and future authorization to execute additional documents as they are requested by Amazon.

Also revealed in the new legislation is that both the Omni Redevelopment District Community Redevelopment Agency and the Southeast Overtown/Park West Community Redevelopment Agency were a part of the original proposal sent to Amazon.

Three properties within the city of Miami, and five outside Miami city limits but still within the region, were submitted as potential sites to Amazon – but that list has now been narrowed. The properties in Miami known to have been submitted are the Innovation District/Worldcenter site, and property controlled by Moishe Mana.
