Missouri bid to land Amazon includes Hyperloop One Technology

All four regions submitted formal bids for the $5 billion project before Thursday's deadline.

Other than releasing the video, officials from the Dallas Regional Chamber and Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce remained mostly mum about their bid to lure Seattle-based Amazon to North Texas with a complex that could eventually employ up to 50,000 people. "Working together, we've had a lot of success bringing new jobs, companies and investment here".

According to officials, Amazon employees would have the option to live and work in different cities throughout the state.

"This will allow us to take individual ideas - from property owners and developers, tech and business leaders, elected officials and community organizations - and produce the strongest possible proposal", said Anthony Hogrebe, an EDC spokesman to the Advance last month.

Erdmann said an innovation corridor could include Columbia, the home of the University of Missouri. "I'm confident we've shared with Amazon all the things that have made this region a great place for corporate headquarters location".

The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce plans to present two "pad-ready" sites to the Kansas City Area Development Council, for a future Amazon headquarters.

Yet, some cities like San Antonio bowed out last week. A public-private coalition has formed to reconsider a route in Missouri.

Department of Economic Development spokeswoman Maggie Kost declined to say whether the state is offering economic incentives to Amazon and if so, how much.

Amazon has not said when it will make its decision.
