The hunt for where Amazon will build its second North American Headquarters is on but some industry leaders doubt Arizona’s chances to secure the project.

Amazon’s “HQ2” would resemble its existing headquarters located north of Downtown Seattle that totals 8 million square feet, employs 40,000 workers and has generated an economic impact of $38 billion between 2010-2016 for the city.

Ideal locations for HQ2 include urban or suburban areas with at least one million people that are well connected to transit and near a university with a large talent pool to hire employees, which signifies Greater Phoenix as a contender.

Amazon opened the HQ2’s Request For Proposal on Thursday, catching the attention of many local and state government officials across the nation.
