Cleveland is among the scores of cities likely to bid for the new headquarters Amazon wants to build. The company has a long list of things it’s looking for.

Amazon has specified everything from airport access to population in its specifications for second home city. Cleveland is citing its success with the Republican National Convention – and a growing downtown – as reasons the company should come here.
