Little Rock Mayor Mark Stodola discusses the city's decision to not pursue Amazon's proposed second headquarters at a news conference, Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017, in Little Rock, Ark.

Ennis said the area has a lot to offer Amazon, including its infrastructure, transportation options and its proximity to Chicago.

McDermott said Hammond doesn't quite meet the acreage requirements Amazon sought in the request for proposals, but wanted to take a shot.

Some of the Canadian bids do not appear to meet some of Amazon's key priorities, including a stated preference to locate in a metropolitan area of at least one million people that has a nearby global airport and mass transit links to the new site.

In a news release issued by the city of Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, the political entities said they were joined in making the bid by "numerous local partners", in addition to GCP, Team NEO and the state of Ohio.


In addition to boasting about a growing pool of qualified candidates and having the highest concentration of tech sector jobs of any Canadian city, Montreal's pitch included a comparison to Toronto, pointing out that it's cheaper for young professionals to live here.

Greater Portland Inc. didn't provide many details on the region's application to host what the online retail giant is calling Amazon HQ2.

Mr. Bolduc said Montreal's bid stresses the city's affordability and the benefits of Quebec social programs such as lower-cost postsecondary education, subsidized day care and a drug insurance plan. The mayor said the city is backing the bid assembled by Gary and the Northwest Indiana Forum as well.

Is the city of Memphis a longshot or sleeper possibility to land Amazon's second headquarters?

The city ran a full-page ad in the Washington Post, telling the e-commerce giant: "It's not you, it's us".
