Amazon to turn old downtown post office into tech hub

Amazon to turn old downtown post office into tech hub

Workers in the new Amazon development will have corporate jobs focused on e-commerce technology, cloud computing and machine learning, Mr. Dougherty said.

Trudeau said at a press conference in Vancouver that Amazon chose Canada for a number of reasons, including the availability of skilled labor talent. "We are proud to champion these companies, who invest in our talent and the future of our economy, and create new opportunities for Canadians to succeed".

"Amazon is excited to create 2,000 more jobs in Greater Boston", head Alexa scientist and Amazon vice-president Rohit Prasad said in a statement, the Globe reported. Vancouver applied, but was not among the finalists for the project, which Amazon says it hopes to staff with 50,000 people.

Amazon already employs more than 6000 full-time workers across Canada, including more than 1000 researchers and engineers in Vancouver who primarily create new products and services for the company's global retail and Amazon Web Services (AWS) businesses.

HUD To Increase Rent On Millions Receiving Federal Housing Assistance
Carson's act doesn't propose a timeline, but Congress must approve the changes before they can go into effect. Therefore, according to his logic, making them pay more in rent will encourage them to make more money.

Along with an office in the Back Bay, a robotics facility in North Reading and a massive distribution center in Fall River, the company has added 3,500 jobs in MA since 2011, with these 2,000 more to come. And last November, Amazon announced planed to add another downtown site in 2020 with 1,000 workers. This is in addition to Amazon's current Vancouver offices - including its 156,000 square foot location in TELUS Garden which opened to Amazon employees in 2015.

On Monday, Amazon announced plans for a new 416,000-square-foot office in Vancouver, B.C. There are plans to employ 3,000 more workers across similar fields as in Boston.

Amazon announced Tuesday that Boston would be the site of a major expansion, leading to speculation about whether the retailer would choose the New England city as its second headquarters later this year.

"With this bold investment, Vancouver just locked in the silver medal in the race for Amazon HQ2", said Sean Elbe, Sector Development Manager, Technology at Vancouver Economic Commission.
