After nearly four months of silence on its North Texas plans, Seattle-based Amazon.com has confirmed to the Dallas Business Journal that the online retail giant is making a foray back to DFW in a big way.
Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) plans to open two large regional distribution centers totaling more than 2 million square feet in Coppell and AllianceTexas. The distribution centers, along with an additional one near San Antonio, will generate about 1,000 fulfillment center jobs.
Fort Worth-based Hillwood Development Co. is the developer of the two ground-up projects. Both 15-year lease deals were completed in 2012. The terms of the agreements were undisclosed.
In December, the Dallas Business Journal obtained public records that outlined the details of its 1.1 million-square-foot distribution center in AllianceTexas, which will sit on roughly 68 acres of land.
