These big cities didn’t make Amazon’s HQ cut

Plenty of big cities aren’t on Amazon’s long short list of 20 places it’s still considering for a second headquarters and 50,000 high-paying jobs.

While the Seattle-based giant kept Atlanta in the running, here are some of the notable cities that aren’t:

  • Phoenix
  • San Diego
  • Charlotte
  • Detroit
  • Cincinnati
  • San Francisco
  • Houston
  • Montreal
  • Kansas City

So how much should Atlanta be celebrating its placement and what’s ahead now? Check out my latest column on MyAJC.com.

And keep this in mind: while Atlanta still has a shot, here’s my column on why Cobb, Gwinnett and North Fulton aren’t prepped to get Amazon’s nod.
