Amazon Is Turning Vancouver's Old Canada Post Building Into Their New HQ

Amazon's unveiling of the new location comes three years after the opening of its current Vancouver offices, located in the TELUS Garden's, in addition to the company having stated in November that it will expand into another downtown location, set to open in 2020. Jobs will include positions in e-commerce technology, cloud computing and machine learning.

In an April 30 release of his own, Trudeau called Amazon's announcement "a testament to Canada's highly-skilled, diverse workforce and tremendous potential as an innovation and tech hub". "We are proud to champion these companies, who invest in our talent and the future of our economy, and create new opportunities for Canadians to succeed". Vancouver applied, but was not among the finalists for the project, which Amazon says it hopes to staff with 50,000 people.

"We choose to build and grow in Canada because we recognize the diverse and exceptionally talented work force here", Jesse Dougherty, Amazon's general manager of web services, told an announcement event on the new development also attended by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

She matched her opponent's powerful groundstrokes but Pliskova struck 11 aces as she went on to claim her first title of the year. Nadal has now won 19 straight matches on clay and 46 sets in a row. "It's been a great lesson", Tsitsipas said .

The Seattle-based company said in a press release that it will open the doors of a new office in Boston's waterfront Seaport development in 2021, allowing it to double its workforce in the city.

As a result, the move will bring as many as 3,000 total new jobs in related tech fields to the region. Since 2011, Amazon has invested more than $400 million in the city, adding corporate offices and fulfilment centers.

Amazon formally announced Tuesday plans to expand its presence in MA. Since Donald Trump became president with the pledge to create thousands of new jobs, US companies have been eager to tout hiring plans even if they've been previously announced. Should Amazon expand its Seaport offices and lease an additional 610,000 square feet of commercial space, which would house an additional 2,000 workers, it will receive an additional $5 million property-tax breaks.
