Amazon cancela planes de abrir una segunda sede en Nueva York – CNET en Español

Amazon canceló sus planes de edificar su segundo campus en la ciudad de Nueva York, así lo confirmó la empresa el jueves en un comunicado publicado en su sitio Web.

“Después de mucho debate y deliberación, hemos decidido no seguir adelante con los planes de crear una sede de Amazon en la ciudad de Long Island, Queens”, dice Amazon en el comunicado. “Mientras que encuestas dicen que el 70 por ciento de los neoyorquinos apoyan los planes e inversión, un sector de los políticos locales han dejado en claro que se oponen a nuestra presencia y que no trabajarán con nosotros en crear el tipo de relación necesaria para avanzar con el proyecto que nosotros y muchos más ideamos para Long Island”. 

Amazon dijo que actualmente tiene 5,000 empleados en Nueva York, los cuales no se verán afectados por esta decisión; y agregó que los planes que abarcan Virginia y Nashville continúan como previsto, pero por ahora detendrán la búsqueda de una ciudad para edificar su segundo campus. La sede central de Amazon está ubicada en Seattle. 

Tras el anuncio de Amazon, Bill de Blasio, alcalde de Nueva York, publicó su postura al respecto: “Debes ser fuerte para conseguir algo en Nueva York”, dijo. “Dimos a Amazon una oportunidad de ser un buen vecino y hacer negocio en la mejor ciudad del mundo. Pero en lugar de trabajar con la comunidad, Amazon despreció esta oportunidad. Si Amazon no puede reconocer el valor [de la ciudad], sus competidores lo harán”. 

En noviembre, Amazon seleccionó dos ubicaciones para su proyecto HQ2: la ciudad de Long Island, Queens y National Landing en Arlington, Virginia, y se esperaba que cada una recibiría unos 25,000 empleos. Amazon también había seleccionado a Nashville para albergar un “centro de excelencia” de unas 5,000 personas para su negocio de operaciones.

Sin embargo, varios políticos de Nueva York han criticado el proyecto y los casi US$2,000 millones en incentivos que las ciudades acordaron proporcionar a Amazon. La representante de la cámara baja del Congreso, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, dijo que era un ejemplo del “asistencialismo corporativo” mientras que la senadora Kirsten Gillibrand dijo que le preocupaba la falta de participación de la comunidad. El senador por el Estado de Nueva York, Michael Gianaris, y el concejal Jimmy Van Bramer también criticaron el plan y ayudaron a organizar una protesta en contra.

La cancelación oficial sucede una semana después de que The Washington Post dio a conocer que la cúpula de Amazon estaba titubeante en seguir con los planes de la segunda sede en Nueva York tras la presión política. El Post dijo que Amazon aún no había adquirido un terreno o rentado oficinas, por lo que sería fácil cancelar los planes.
