Bowman Confirms $ 40 Million Amazon.com Middle at AllianceFlorida | Jax Day by day Document | Jacksonville Day by day Document

Alderman Aaron Bowman said at the end of the council meeting on Jan. 26 that the new Westside Amazon.com center will be a $ 40 million project that will create 200 jobs.

Bowman, the District 3 Council representative, is senior vice president of business development for the JAX Chamber.

He was referring to an announcement of the 280,000-square-foot facility, though the Seattle-based retailer didn’t issue a press release about it.

His comments came four days after the city approved the construction of a foundation for an Amazon facility in AllianceFlorida at the Cecil Commerce Center on Jan. 22 at a cost of $ 2.7 million.

Conlan Co. is the contractor for the foundation, which supports a single-story warehouse with concrete tipping and office and break room in the West Jacksonville industrial park.

The 278,237 square foot center is located at 13450 Waterworks St. on Parcel F on southwest POW-MIA Memorial Parkway and under development on Waterworks Street.

Plans suggest it could be a sorting center with outgoing cross-dock doors.

The building will include 261,321 square meters of warehouse space and 16,916 square meters of office space.

The city granted W. Gardner LLC of Jacksonville on Nov. 11 to clear, pine, pond, and clear trees at the address at a cost of $ 6.4 million.

In October, the city began reviewing a permit application and plans for an Amazon facility on the site at a cost of $ 40.4 million. It is referred to as JAX9, a code name used by the online retailer. A document from the utility company JEA showed that the center could create around 260 jobs.

The 278,237 square foot center is located at 13450 Waterworks St. on Parcel F on southwest POW-MIA Memorial Parkway and under development on Waterworks Street.

Dallas-based Hillwood, the city’s primary developer in Westside Business Park, announced in its December third quarter report that it and the tenant had created a no-obligation term sheet to admit a roughly 280,000-square-foot, bespoke industrial facility rent on package F.

The town owns the land in Cecil and is selling property to Hillwood for development. Waterworks BLDG F-1 LLC, part of Hillwood, is listed as a JAX9 developer.

The city expects the building to take 10-12 months to complete.

Amazon has opened or plans to operate at least 12 locations in the region, including three large fulfillment centers, including one in the Cecil Commerce Center. six delivery stations; a heavy bulk freight center; and in addition to the AllianceFlorida location, a 240,000 square meter sorting center called JAX5 in the Westside Industrial Park.

According to Amazon.com, sorting centers are “midmile” delivery centers, where the company sorts customer orders by zip code before handing them over to delivery partners for final delivery.
