From 2010 to 2015, Dallas ranked among the leading metros in attracting young adults who were black (41,000), white (32,000) and Asian (27,000). He believes that Amazon will emphasize diversity in the HQ2 decision and that Dallas can make a compelling case.

“It’s a big, growing, diverse city that’s attracting a lot of millennial­s, and it’s improving on educationa­l attainment,” Frey said.

Landing Amazon would accelerate advances in education because the company would invest money and effort into improving the community.

“Dallas already has a good profile, and Amazon would make it even better,” he said.
