Downtown Buffalo would have been a very different place if it had been designated as the site of Amazon's second headquarters. That was the message Wednesday as officials unveiled more details of the joint Buffalo-Rochester proposal to secure the tech giant's HQ2.
Amazon has released its short list of 20 candidates for its second North American headquarters and a joint bid submitted by Buffalo and Rochester is not on the list. Toronto did make the cut, the only Canadian city to do so.
WBFO's Michael Mroziak reports (extended version).
Rochester and Buffalo have teamed up to make a bid for Amazon’s second North American headquarters. Billions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs are at stake. But the New York bid will get stiff competition from north of the border.
