Like manyothers, General Electric may set up shop in the Seaport District.

The Boston area is on a short list of locations GE is considering for its new global headquarters that could bring hundreds of well-paid jobs to the city, The Boston Globe reports.

The company has been looking at a number of sites in the area – including the South Boston waterfront – and is considering buying, leasing, or building a new facility. According to the Globe, the company could decide by the end of the year.

Acquiring GE’s headquarters would be a win for the city, reinforcing Boston’s reputation as a hub of health care and technology, the Globe reports.
