Amazon to add 1,000 jobs in Houston area with new fulfillment center

Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) is building another 850,000-square-foot fulfillment center in the Houston area.

 

Dallas-based Trammell Crow Co. is the developer for the project, which is being built on 93.5 acres at 10507 Harlem Road in Richmond in Fort Bend County, according to a press release. The facility is expected to open in 2021 and create 1,000 jobs.

 

The fulfillment center will ship small items such as books, electronics and toys, and employees will work alongside Amazon robotics.

 

“We are excited to be working with Amazon in Southeast Texas to deliver this new, state-of-the art fulfillment center,” said Jeremy Garner, a principal with TCC. “Significant planning has gone into this facility’s design, which allows for extensive use of robotics to further enhance Amazon’s robust fulfillment capabilities.”

 

The architect of record is Ware Malcomb, and Graycor Construction Company Inc. is serving as the general contractor. HSA & Associates, Langan Engineering and Jordon & Skala Engineers are providing engineering services, and The Harrington Group Inc. is providing fire protection design.

 

The site's undisclosed seller was represented by Tony Patronella and Jeanie Gibbs with Read King. Stephen Schneidau of Cushman & Wakefield and Matt O’Brien of KBC Advisors represented the land purchaser.

 

The Fort Bend Economic Development Council and Fort Bend County officials worked with Amazon to bring the project to Richmond, Fort Bend County Judge KP George said in the release.

 

 

 

I passed this intersection a few times in the past week and there's an enormous 5-6 story building being constructed close to this address. Is that where it will be located or is it merely going to be adjacent?

I had heard that would be an e-commerce hub for Amazon/Whole Foods.
