In January, Chicago made the list of 20 finalists from across the nation for the online retailer's "HQ2", a new campus equivalent to its original Seattle headquarters where the company says it expects "to invest over $5 billion in construction and grow this second headquarters to include as many as 50,000 high-paying jobs".
