No Amazon HQ2 for us 

Awww....

Amazon announced the 20 finalists for its Headquarters 2 location this morning, and the Rochester-Buffalo area isn't one of them.

From the proposals it received from 238 cities and regions, here's who made the cut, in alphabetical order:

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

Amazon didn't give reasons for dropping the other 218, but clearly it leaned toward larger metropolitan areas and, in the case of the mid-size cities, toward places with a kind of national buzz.

Speaking of Amazon HQ2, Rochester Amazon Bid
