Amazon to lease giant NYC warehouse space for delivery center

0

Tech giant Amazon has inked a deal to lease another massive warehouse space for a delivery center in Brooklyn, the company said Wednesday.

The online delivery service said they will open the center at the 211,000 square foot building at 12555 Flatlands Avenue, near Erskine Street, in East New York in 2021.

The company’s delivery centers act as a last stop for packages, where they are sorted and then loaded onto trucks and delivered to customers.

The site will join another Amazon facility in the neighborhood at 2300 Linden Boulevard, which will open in the beginning of 2021, the company said.

“We are excited to continue to invest in New York State with a new delivery station that will provide efficient delivery for customers and create job opportunities for the talented workforce,” Amazon spokesperson Emily Hawkins said in a statement.

The company claimed the facility will create hundreds of full and part-time jobs that will pay at least $15 an hour.

In June, the company reportedly inked a deal to lease a 1-million-square-foot warehouse in Maspeth section of Queens. The company planned to knock down the paper-making factory at 55-15 Grand Ave. and replace it with a multi-level warehouse facility.
