Client-Only Brief: Amazon HQ2 Finalists

Briefs are a client-only publication series showcasing the most buzzworthy topics in the housing market.

In this inaugural brief, we handpicked a few of the final cities in the running for Amazon’s HQ2 and put them into five different categories (Midwest Charm, Standouts, Lifestyle, Metropolitan, and Techie). For each category, we explore what the major benefits could be for the region if they win Amazon.

Amazon HQ2 Finalists

Amazon narrowed down their prospective list of cities for their second headquarters (HQ2) to 20, and after analyzing the data, we believe the Midwest could receive the biggest benefit if chosen. The winning city will receive up to a $5 billion investment from Amazon, as well as 50,000 high-paying jobs.

Top 20 Cities At A Glance

  • 80% fall on the eastern side of the US and Canada
  • Five of the top 10 cities for year-to-date permit issuance (Jan-Nov 2017) made the list: Dallas, Atlanta, Austin, Washington, DC, and Nashville
  • Notable snubs include Portland, Charlotte, and Salt Lake City
