I think here in Atlanta we only have Google, Facebook, and Microsoft (if you don't include Amazon warehouses and Apple Stores)

Google is anchoring a new project in Midtown.

Meh, those small sales offices don't employ a lot of people. As you noted they are everywhere.

I get you are making a joke. But coronovirus will pass. I'd love to have a half million or more square feet of (non sales) jobs from the big tech/software companies.

In the Boston area there are offices for all of these companies:

Facebook: 100 Binney Street, Cambridge


Google: is expanding their office in Cambridge


Apple: also expanding in Cambridge with a new building


Amazon: has space in 101 Main St. Cambridge and is building an additional new office in the seaport district of Boston

101 Main St.

Seaport Square office

Microsoft: office at 255 main st. in Cambridge
(I can't find an image that I am able to upload)

To add to your post Vancouver also has a Microsoft and Facebook office downtown. Google has yet to express any interest in opening an office though.

Dunno if this has been mentioned, but Huntsville has a Facebook data center under construction.

Interesting how big department stores are downsizing and re-purposing upper floors. That used to be a Sears before becoming a Nordstrom, right? In Toronto, our downtown Eatons became a Sears and is now a Nordstrom. Likewise, the upper floors are being re-purposed to house tech. It will house Bank of Montreal's (BMO Financial) new 'tech campus'.

On a side note, Canada's biggest metros would all have major FAAMG offices. The stand out is Kitchener - Waterloo (metro population of 600,000). You wouldn't expect a place that small to have any but it does. KW is Canada's San Jose in many respects. Google expects its KW work force to number 5,000 by 2022.

Yeah, I'd say that medicine is far more important than internet advertising, tech gadgets, and consumer goods delivery services. And having a top-notch, "destination" specialty healthcare provider is a huge asset for a city... though it's really not all that relevant to the current pandemic, as some small cities and most medium-sized cities and larger have excellent tertiary care hospitals which have all the expertise necessary to address covid-19 treatment.

Still, having concentration of biomedical expertise is certainly a good thing when confronting infectious disease, particularly when it's relevant to a global pandemic... so here in "pitts", we're quite fortunate to have stuff like this:

Researchers in Pittsburgh, Paris and Vienna Win Grant for COVID-19 Vaccine

https://www.upmc.com/media/news/032020-cepi-grant

3/20/2020

PITTSBURGH – An international academic-industry partnership has secured the funding necessary to develop a vaccine for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is responsible for the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The international, intergovernmental organization Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) is committing nearly $5 million to a consortium led by Institut Pasteur in Paris, in collaboration with Themis in Vienna and the University of Pittsburgh Center for Vaccine Research (CVR), to develop a SARS CoV 2 vaccine and take it through phase I clinical trials in humans.

“There are virologists all around the world who have been trained for this moment,” said CVR director and Jonas Salk Chair for Vaccine Research Paul Duprex, Ph.D. “We have colleagues in many parts of the world who collaborate and work with us to share information and share knowledge because this is important.”

Duprex and colleagues are developing a SARS-CoV-2 vaccine using a measles vector — meaning a measles vaccine engineered to express SARS-CoV-2 proteins on its surface — to generate immunity to the virus.

Scientists at all three institutions are already working on creating the vaccine, and CVR scientists are hard at work designing animal testing protocols that require special biocontainment measures for safe handling of potentially lethal, airborne pathogens like SARS-CoV-2.

The CVR’s Regional Biocontainment Laboratories (RBL) are state-of-the-art facilities for research on biodefense and emerging infectious diseases. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) has supported this network of labs since 2003, with the mandate that the CVR will respond rapidly to global outbreaks, such as COVID-19, by developing animal models and testing candidate vaccines. CVR is one of a short list of sites in the U.S. to have received samples of SARS-CoV-2 from the Centers for Disease Control.

“You have to be the right laboratory who can handle the virus in the right way with the right expertise to safely, carefully, methodically and rigorously understand the disease,” Duprex said. “All of our efforts will be directed to address this rapidly changing public health emergency,” Duprex said. “We are delighted to be part of this multinational, world-class consortium.”

The research team anticipates that by April they’ll have a candidate vaccine ready for animal testing in Paris and Pittsburgh. This will be complemented by the development of an aerosol model of COVID-19 disease at CVR. By the end of the year a total of 60-80 human volunteers in two sites in Europe will have gotten the vaccine. At the same time, Themis will be generating a stockpile of the candidate vaccine in anticipation of a phase II trial starting early next year.

CEPI and their partners will help to accelerate the vaccine through the regulatory process, potentially through an Emergency Use Listing with the World Health Organization.

“It is clear that an effective vaccine against COVID-19 is crucial if we are to beat this virus,” said Richard Hatchett, M.D., CEO of CEPI. “By investing in a range of partners and vaccine technologies, we are giving ourselves the best chance of developing a vaccine that can stop COVID-19 in its tracks.”

Same with Houston. We have some of their back office/ advertising presence here but nothing major and nothing of consequence. We have far more bio technology and bio engineering presence due to the Texas Medical Center. Several different firms are working on the vaccines and treatments for Covid-19

Pittsburgh only has both (major tech firm presence and a top national medical center) because of Carnegie Mellon (computer sciences) and Pitt (biomedical sciences). If Pittsburgh didn’t have those two top research universities, this area would be in much rougher shape.

Andrew Carnegie and the Mellon family ensured that would never happen.

i would hardly think having the best healthcare providers is not relevant to the current pandemic ... but anyway as to your post there yeah, its a coronavirus, so a vaccine is inevitable.
