The Impact of HQ2 on Your
Business and the Region
In January, Amazon announced that Maryland was one of 20 finalists considered for HQ2. As a result, the State of Maryland and Montgomery County commissioned Sage Policy Group to analyze the economic and fiscal benefits associated with the development of Amazon’s second headquarters (HQ2).  
Amazon intends to invest more than $5 billion in support of HQ2, which is ultimately set to accommodate as many as 50,000 high paying direct jobs. In addition to Amazon’s direct hiring and investment, construction and ongoing operation of Amazon’s HQ2 is expected to create tens of thousands of additional jobs and tens of billions of dollars in additional investment in the surrounding region!
