Amazon’s new mega campus: second biggest project in the U.S.

I guess Amazon.com still wants to get big, fast.

The company’s decision to proceed on a huge new Seattle headquarters campus made the list of “Top Deals” in North America in 2007, compiled by Site Selection magazine (“the official publication of the Industrial Asset Management Council”).

Amazon’s 11-building project was valued at $1.5 billion and will accommodate 3,000 jobs. Of course it’s not a new company coming to town. It’s moving from scattered buildings on downtown’s south side to a single campus north of downtown at the foot of Allentown.

For comparison, the project’s bigger than a Toyota factory that also made the top 10 list with a value of $1.3 billion and 2,000 jobs involved.

Amazon’s campus placed second on the list, behind a $3.7 billion, 2700-job ThyssenKrupp project in Mount Vernon, Ala.

Another local firm received honorable mention: Paccar, for a $400 million, 500-job project in Columbus, Miss.
