Amazon has released a list of 20 possible cities as finalists for its new headquarters and D.C., Northern Virginia, and Montgomery County all made the cut.
In order to be considered, cities had to meet some baseline criteria: a population of over one million and an area where technical talent would gravitate. A total of 238 cities submitted bids. The new headquarters is expected to generate up to 50,000 new jobs.
The NY Times published the list of finalists today.
Montgomery County, Maryland
Raleigh, North Carolina

The company is expected to make a decision by the end of the year.
