Amazon has pared down a list of 20 location for its new headquarters and Rochester hasn’t made the cut.

In a news release on Thursday, the company says it plans to invest $5 billion to build the second headquarters bringing “50,000 high-paying jobs” to the city it chooses. The company adds, “In addition to Amazon’s direct hiring and investment, construction and ongoing operation of Amazon HQ2 is expected to create tens of thousands of additional jobs and tens of billions of dollars in additional investment in the surrounding community.”

Among the candidates for the new headquarters are New York City, Toronto, and Pittsburgh. However, Rochester and Buffalo’s combined bid did not make the list.

Earlier this year, Rochester was listed as a top location by Moody’s for the new headquarters.

The list includes:

– Atlanta, GA

– Austin, TX

– Boston, MA

– Chicago, IL

– Columbus, OH

– Dallas, TX

– Denver, CO

– Indianapolis, IN

– Los Angeles, CA

– Miami, FL

– Nashville, TN
