Amazon HQ2 Chicago: news and updates

Chicago didn’t win the bid, here’s what happened

The hunt for Amazon’s HQ2 is over. After a long show where 238 cities submitted proposals vying for the company’s attention, ultimately Arlington, Virginia and New York City were the winners. Yes, the bid was split between not one but two unsurprising choices.

You can bet some officials like Mayor Rahm Emanuel are disappointed, but others will say the city dodged a bullet. Either way we definitely pulled out all the stops—even getting William Shatner to narrate Chicago’s pitch video for Jeff Bezos who is a well-known Star Trek fan. The 10 development sites that were pitched including The 78, Lincoln Yards and The River District will now continue without the mega online retailer.

Chicago’s Amazon journey is over for now, which you can read about below in our story stream. Track the tech giant’s progress in its new HQ2 cities on Curbed New York and Curbed DC.
