This is a longshot in my opinion but I wonder what the impact would be on the pines and area in general if amzn chose Philly as its 2nd HQ city. I truely dont think Philly will be chosen because of its awful road system and so so public transportation solutions. Also I think philly’s blue collar culture doesnt blend well with AMZN culture. However if they did I wonder what impact it would have. My sister lives outside Seatle and the impact on real estate costs is immense. I wonder how much development would take over areas within a hour ride of city. Amazon is a force and a crippling effect on businesses. Its my opinion that these large tech companies will continue to grow in power as the cannabilize and disrupt business. While i selfishly want them to move to improve philly as a city and my personal real estate, i fear greatly the impact on open space and the pines.
