Holzmann expects that, in deciding where to build its second headquarters, Amazon will focus on labor pool, costs, tax breaks and how much it can leverage from a state and region. He said that works against big markets such as New York, D.C. and Los Angeles and works to the advantage for Austin, Raleigh-Durham, Columbus and Indianapolis.
