Inc.: Raleigh is a Top 5 Destination for new Amazon HQ

Here's what Inc. had to say about Raleigh...

"It may be wise for Amazon to consider an East Coast location for HQ2 merely to spread out its network. Raleigh/Durham is a growing tech hub with an emphasis on biotech and life sciences, which has already helped the city attract some top talent that Amazon could capitalize on. The area also would offer employees a low cost of living and the company plenty of access to real estate, whether it would like to lease existing space or even consider a build-to-suit opportunity with a developer. One minor challenge for this region may be an infrastructure system that isn't as mature as some larger metros. There is no train system, but the area does boast a robust busing system and a highly-ranked airport.
