Indianapolis was one of 20 finalists that Amazon was considering for the new headquarters that Amazon announced it would be building last year. The company plans to invest $5 billion in their new site and hire as many as 50,000 people. 

Although the decision would leave Indianapolis out, Amazon recently announced that they would be building a new redistribution facility in Greenwood that would bring roughly 1,200 jobs to the city and cost approximately $80 million to build.
