  • Albuquerque doesn't make cut for Amazon's new headquarters

The Seattle-based company's announcement last fall that it was looking for a second home touched off a fierce competition among states and cities looking to lure Amazon and its promise of 50,000 jobs and construction spending of more than $5 billion. The list also includes Columbus, Ohio; Montgomery, Md.; Newark, N.J.; northern Virginia; Nashville, Tenn.; Raleigh, N.C.; and Washington, D.C. The tech giant announced the finalists on Thursday morning. Many cities with very weak transit networks made the list", and "Among smaller cities, the ones the made the list mostly have high or decent population growth. "This is a valuable template and we will use many aspects of the Amazon plan to attract business and commerce to our region in the future." writes St. Louis County Executive Steve Stenger in a statement. Toronto made the list as well, keeping the company's global options open.

It said it would work with the federal and provincial government as it learned more about Amazon's next steps in deciding on its future corporate home. It also offered to partner with local universities for a new program tailored for Amazon's workforce. Amazon officials said they reviewed 238 proposals from the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Mayor John Cranley will comment after Thursday's 2 p.m. City Council meeting at City Hall, his spokeswoman said. "It may well have been better to be one of the people who got cut early than to keep making through all these rounds only to lose (or potentially even to win)". It plans to make its final decision this year. "All the proposals showed tremendous enthusiasm and creativity". Amazon announced the bids October followings its submission deadline. It spans 8.1 million square feet and includes 33 buildings.
