'It Just Didn't Feel Right': Austin Tech Leaders React to Amazon HQ2 Decision

Austin didn't land Amazon's HQ2 — or the whittled down versions it is intending to build in Arlington, Virginia, and Long Island City in the Queens borough of New York City. But that's just fine with a few Austin tech and real estate leaders Inno chatted with as the news broke. "It just didn't feel right," said Joshua Baer, founder of Capital Factory. "At least when it was HQ2 in one place, it seemed like too much for Austin right now. And when it becomes HQ3 and 4, who cares? Because we know we're going to get growth from Amazon. There's no bigger cheerleader for Austin than me, but this just wasn't the right time for that."
