Amazon has made its choice for its new headquarters, HQ2.

Although Dallas was among the finalists, and was even one of a handful of cities to receive a second visit, it did not make the final cut.

The Dallas Morning News reports that Amazon selected “the East Coast power corridor of New York and Washington, D.C., for its new headquarters.”

Amazon will spend around $5 billion in total, but it will divide that between the two cities, employing as many as 25,000 people in each with an average salary of $150,000.

Amazon said its reason for the choice is because “it can recruit more top talent” in those cities, the DMN reports.
