Poll: Which D.C. area city should Amazon pick for its second headquarters?

And how do you really feel about the headquarters?

Amazon truly has the pick of the litter when it comes to choosing where it wants its second headquarters, or HQ2, to be located. Across the nation, a myriad of cities are readying their bids to get the tech company to choose them for a headquarters that could bring up to 50,000 workers and cost as much as $5 billion.

Already, Maryland, Virginia, and the District have announced that they are interested, but there is still no absolute certainty as to what these bids will consist of. Even so, a number of city officials have already offered a few ideas as to which areas in the region may be the best fit.

Below, take a look at which cities and counties have been brought up so far, and choose which you think is truly the frontrunner.

    I think there is another city/county in the region that is the more likely choice.

While you’re at it, let Curbed DC know know how you really feel. Would Amazon’s HQ2 be a true game changer worth pursuing or would it be better to put the whole project to the side and ignore it for now?

    This would be a true game changer for the region. Let’s definitely pursue it.

    There’s no chance at the region getting the project anyway. Let’s just move on to something else already.

    Regardless of whether or not the D.C. area has a chance at getting the headquarters, there’s really no space for it. I mean, it could end up being over 8 million square feet—Yikes!

    I have some strong feelings about this, and I’ll share them in the comments.
