    Amazon Second HQ

    After following many of these proposals, I gotta give props to Amazon for making all of these conservative car-centric cities come out and act like they actually care about things like good transit and bike lanes. I get the sense that so many were struggling to show off any progressive...

    I haven't found complete bid books from other cities, but I have found promotional websites and videos that they have used in addition to their bid. Philadelphia Website: https://public.philadelphiadelivers.com/ Detroit Website: http://www.detroitmovestheworld.com/ Pittsburgh Website...

    There seems to be quite a few typos in the bid book. I've spotted at least three: pg. 30 its/it's, pg. 65 "shorty ferry ride", and pg.73 "it only takes only 25 minutes" (in reference to the UPX of all things). It's kind of embarrassing.

    Georgia City Will Rename Itself 'Amazon' If It Wins The New Headquarters How are we supposed to compete with this??

    Oh absolutely, although I wouldn't expect them to put forth competitive incentive/tax break packages.

    I agree that Boston is the favourite to win this simply because of Harvard and MIT. Beyond that though, they also have an unbelievable plan in redeveloping the inner belt in nearby Somerville. Here's a screenshot: The red circle is the inner belt set for redevelopment. It's an area of 140...

    Pokémon Go

    This game is honestly amazing. I was walking home from work the other day when I noticed a Weepinbell was nearby so I immediately turned around and started looking for it. I ended up meeting a few other people also looking for the Weepinbell and we banded together to try and find it. Eventually...

    Ontario Line (was Relief Line South, in Design)

    @Euphoria Every time you go on about the Gardiner in this thread, I always think of this video. You're an "ideas man" through and through.
