CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Amazon has whittled down the list of possible locations for its second headquarters to 20 cities, and Cleveland is not on the list.

According to the New York Times, the Northeast Ohio city is no longer considered for the company's next base, but Ohio's capitol city of Columbus is still up for consideration.  

The company received over 238 applications by local offices in Mexico, Canada, and the U.S.

Finalists include:

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Austin, TX
  • Boston, MA.
  • Chicago, IL
  • Dallas, TX
  • Denver, CO
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Miami, FL
  • Montgomery County, MD
  • Nashville, TN
  • Newark, NJ
  • New York City, NY
  • Northern Virginia, VA
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Raleigh, NC
  • Toronto, ON
  • Washington, DC

Many thought Cleveland could be in the running when Amazon announced plans for several future fulfillment centers in Northeast Ohio.
