Pittsburgh is among 20 cities still in the running for Amazon's second headquarters. Based in Seattle, the retail giant plans to invest $5 billion in its new headquarters. The winning city stands to gain as many as 50,000 new jobs over an up to 17-year build out.  In a news release disclosing the list, Amazon didn’t outline its rationale behind its selections. A final decision is expected later this year. 

The 20 finalists are:

  • Atlanta
  • Austin, TX
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Dallas
  • Denver
  • Indianapolis
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
