    Here’s a link to a map that shows the neighborhoods in Columbus, and the cities surrounding Columbus.

    Does anyone know if a particular area of Columbus is being considered?

      Hi Christine- I’m not sure about where the HQ would be. I’ll have to keep digging.

      I updated the Columbus section over their existing data centers.

      I’m reading about the booming housing market of Columbus. This is a negative for the city’s chances though. Do you know a particular area of Columbus, or near Columbus, that you think would be an ideal neighborhood for new comers?

    Columbus is surrounded by towns with affordable housing and good schools. Look at housing prices in a thirty minute commuting distance. Work in Columbus, but live outside the city for the peace and quiet.

      Most of these cities have expensive housing markets, so this piece of information about Columbus is needed.

      Could you start this off? A starting point would be very very helpful and valuable.

      Thank you,
      Charlie

        Sure, Charlie! Let me look up some information. Metro Columbus’ housing market is booming, but I’m fairly sure that it’s the most affordable of all the contenders.

    I would suggest adding that Newark is currently home to Audible, an Amazon company, which means Amazon already has a foot in the door in this city.

      That’s a great point. Could you add a bullet point under Newark with this info?
