Amazon is set to open a new distribution center in Memphis, TN. The facility will bring approximately 600 jobs to the area – based on the application Amazon submitted to the Economic Development Growth Engine for Memphis and Shelby County.
The $10 million building permit was filed on Tuesday for the development of 5155 Citation Drive in Memphis by Catamount Constructors Inc. The constructors also built Amazon’s first Memphis fulfillment center location in Lebanon, Tennessee. The new distribution center will utilize the 400,000 square foot building which once housed AT&T Inc.
Amazon’s first Memphis location is a 615,000 square foot warehouse located on East Holmes Road close to Memphis International airport. This facility is also estimated to bring around 600 jobs to the Memphis area.
The Seattle-based e-commerce giant has been growing exponentially over the years, with over 50 other fulfillment centers and more than 90,000 full-time employees. Amazon’s announcement of the new location is exciting news for current residents and potential investors as Memphis continues to grow.
