Yet despite the rejection, the Maumee team was upbeat.
Orlando lacks the kind of iconic higher-education institution that many cities on the short list have, said Owen Beitsch, an adjunct professor who teaches real estate development at University of Central Florida.
There are concerns, of course, that an influx of thousands of well-paid workers might boost rents and make home purchases more expensive - but the city can answer those concerns with imaginative approaches to growth and with upgrades in transportation, specifically a continued push for a light-rail system and high-tech bus service, to cite two examples. Amazon officials said they reviewed 238 proposals from the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The Internet-based retailer plans to make a final selection sometime this year. "Through this process, we learned about many new communities across North America that we will consider as locations for future infrastructure investment and job creation", Holly Sullivan, Amazon Public Policy, stated in a press release to the media.
The economic gains presented from being awarded the Amazon headquarters can not be understated, according to Tim.
"It's hard to say whether all these places are in play or Amazon wanted to encourage continued competition", Kolko said.
Mr. McMahon said the Maumee group achieved its goals.
"The last thing we want to do is kill a potential Amazon that would come out of Toronto", he said.

MI meteor: How valuable are meteorites?
Around the time of the flash of light at 8:15 p.m., residents across metro Detroit also reported that their homes began shaking. The AMS receives reports of hundreds of fireballs every year, but Tuesday's event was a bigger deal than most.
Secondly, news of Maumee's site began to circulate outside Ohio. "And it's not like we lost the beauty contest".
"It was great", he said.
"We said, 'If we don't get the big one, maybe we'll get on the radar for somebody who does business with them, '" he said.
Trump, who isn't a big fan of Amazon in the first place, sent tweets this week that took credit for Apple Inc.'s plans to invest heavily in the USA and praised Chrysler for moving operations to MI from Mexico. "They would like to be in proximity to a downtown that's got arts, entertainment, restaurants, an overall good community feel", he added.
Tim Cowden, president and CEO of the KC Area Development Council and the main author of the HQ2 proposal, said they're disappointed but not discouraged.
"I'm sure there will be some blowback", says Edward Jones' Olson. "While we always knew that our bid was considered a long shot, we are excited that it is already serving as a template for other businesses that now have New Hampshire on their radar". A lot of work went into our proposal awfully fast.
The Bay Area struck out Thursday when Seattle-based Amazon revealed the names of the 20 metropolitan regions that are now finalists for the e-commerce kingpin's second corporate headquarters. Dallas leaders intend to see development on all of those sites even if Amazon HQ2 goes elsewhere.
"This wasn't about turning in the best application". Jerry Brown has offered tax breaks and incentives to Amazon if it chooses a California location for HQ2, including up to $200 million over a five-year period as part of the California Competes Tax Credit program, a streamlined permitting process and up to $100 million in employment training funds over 10 years.
