Two hundred thirty-eight cities and regions in North America have submitted proposals to Amazon to become the location of the company’s second headquarters. It was an overwhelming response to Amazon’s announcement last month that they were looking to build a second headquarters, to be called Amazon HQ2, to supplement their current Seattle location. The 238 proposals came from 54 states, several Canadian provinces, and three cities in Mexico.
Fortune consulted Everest Group, a Dallas research firm, which predicted that the city selected will need to have a population of at least four million. Their top candidates are Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, New York, and Washington D.C.
