Here's another list of cities. No rankings, just a list of cities believed to be in the running. They appear to list about 100 cities. Greensboro.... absent.

I don't see Hickory on the list either.

Oh, I see now. When you said "good news for Raleigh and Charlotte" I didn't know what you were referring to...I see now its was in response to them being 13th and 15th on Moody's list. Not sure I agree with that assessment, but at least now I know what you were talking about.

I think there's a decent chance that if HQ does pick Raleigh or Charlotte (unlikely, but I wouldn't equate their odds with Blutarsky's GPA (0.0) either) that the area could see some mild benefit. Best case, maybe a satellite campus that brings a few hundred relatively well paid workers or even a distribution center. Worst case, it expands the tax base in the state at the very least which would lead to some benefit here too.

It's definitely better for us if they choose Raleigh or Charlotte than if they choose NJ.

The Triad bid has been officially shipped. Five undisclosed sites for a Triad headquarters was submitted with the bid. If I had to guess two urban sites it would be the News & Record site in downtown Greensboro which is directly north of the depot/Amtrak station and a site in the Innovation Quarter in Winston-Salem. Not that it really matters because the Triad wont get it. The Triangle also put in one regional bid for Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. The Triangle has seven sites with its bid, likely RTP, downtown Raleigh and Durham's planned downtown Innovation Quarter are three of the target sites.

Touche . I've seen Newark and White Plains grouped together in several lists so that's why I got mixed up. But my point is that I think it'll be one of the NJ cities. Obviously White Plains would NOT be included in that. But perhaps Newark/Jersey City.

It appears NY and NJ are perhaps doing a joint bid? Moody's listed this as an area bidding:

6. New York-Jersey City-White Plains, N.Y.-N.J.

That's just the official name of the metropolitan division. The New York–Newark–Jersey City, NY–NJ–PA metropolitan statistical area is made up of four metropolitan divisions. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Yo...atistical_Area
