Amazon's HQ2 will be in 1 of these 20 locations

Amazon has short-listed 20 metropolitan areas, including New York City, to build its second headquarters after reviewing 238 proposals and expects to make a decision this year, the company said on Thursday.

Major cities including New York City, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. make the list, along with smaller cities such as Raleigh, North Carolina, and Columbus, Ohio. 

Toronto, Canada's largest city, is also on the list.

The Seattle-based e-commerce company said it would work with each of the candidate locations to get more information and evaluate the feasibility of a future partnership.

Amazon said in September it would build a $5 billion second headquarters in North America, kicking off a competition between cities and states to offer tax cuts and incentives that could bring 50,000 new jobs.

The company received 238 proposals in just a month after it began accepting proposals as elected officials eager for Amazon's promised investment and jobs offered the company billions in tax breaks.

Here are the 20 locations being considered:

  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Austin, Texas
  • Boston, Massachusetts 
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Denver, Colorado 
  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Miami, Florida
  • Montgomery County, Maryland
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • New York City
  • Northern Virginia
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  • Raleigh, North Carolina
  • Toronto, Canada
  • Washington D.C.
