Could 2nd Amazon Headquarters Be Coming To Denver?

posted by Big Rob -

This morning, Amazon unveiled its shortlist of 20 North American cities still in the running to become the site of the company's second headquarters. A total of 238 cities from across the continent submitted proposals after the Seattle-based company announced in September that it was looking to develop a "second but equal" HQ site. Cities that wished to submit proposals had to be located in a metropolitan area with more than 1 million people, have a "stable and business-friendly environment" and have "the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent." A number of outlandish proposals failed to make the cut; for example, while Stonecrest, Georgia, offered to change its name to Amazon, it didn't make the shortlist LOL. Here are the 20 cities still in the running:

  • Atlanta
  • Austin
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Columbus
  • Dallas
  • Denver (WOOT WOOT)
  • Indianapolis
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • Montgomery County, Md.
  • Nashville
  • Newark
  • New York City
  • Northern Virginia
  • Philadelphia
  • Pittsburgh
  • Raleigh
  • Toronto
  • Washington, D.C.

They're already building a hub in Thornton.. Might as well bring the HQ home as well :)
