No Utah Cities Make The Cut For Second Amazon Headquarters

Amazon has reviewed the proposals from potential candidate cities for its second North American headquarters location, and it found 20 of those the most promising.

The District, Northern Virginia, and Montgomery County, Maryland, are listed as three of the finalists.

Amazon officials have said the HQ2 project will include the hiring of 50,000 new full-time employees and an investment of $5 billion in capital expenditures.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett said no matter Amazon's final decision, Indianapolis is already a big victor. With fantastic amenities, cutting edge office space, unrivaled access to a multi-modal transportation network, world-renowned education institutions and a growing talent pool, Downtown Brooklyn and the Tech Triangle are the ideal fit for Amazon HQ2.

Amazon announced the 20 finalist cities for its second headquarters on January 18. The list skews heavily to the South and East Coast, with Amazon choosing only one city from the West Coast - Los Angeles - and omitting Vancouver, Portland, Ore., and San Francisco. Differences in approaches affected the outcomes, though Philadelphia, Atlanta, Boston, and NY made all three lists. The county does have a standard economic inventive package and a headquarters provision that could unlock more dollars for Amazon, but it's unclear right now what else local governments might pitch in.

The competition had been fierce, with 238 cities sending in proposals with tax incentives and unique offers to lure Amazon. "Getting from 238 to 20 was very tough - all the proposals showed tremendous enthusiasm and creativity", said Molly Sullivan, an executive with Amazon Public Policy.

"Under the leadership of Governor Cuomo, New York continues to attract top companies from all over the world to grow their business and create the jobs of tomorrow, and we look forward to building on this incredible momentum", Zemsky said in a statement. "I think we offered an innovative answer - but, no we're not surprised". "We are proud of the investments and partnerships we've made that enhance our many attributes, such as our world-class university system, well-trained workforce, diverse economy, strong infrastructure and emerging entrepreneurial spirit".

The Dallas bid is regional, with possible sites in Fort Worth and other North Texas cities, kicking off the bidding process to phase two.
