Project Description

This large distribution center was built for local online retailer Amazon. Sitework of the 45 acre lot included demolition of existing buildings as well as foliage clearing. The building footprint is 811,673 square feet in size with an additional 238,595 square feet of process mezzanine and another 1,223,244 square feet of mezzanines over three levels. The tilt wall panels of the project range from 45’ – 50’ from the buildings finished floor. The project will also include approximately 45,000 square feet of office area, a breakroom and a maintenance area build out. The project consists of redeveloping a 45 acre parcel with the majority of the earthwork taking place during the wet season to achieve contractual delivery of the building.

This will be the fourth Amazon Fulfillment center in the Puget Sound in addition to Amazon’s recently opened sort center across the street from this location in Kent. This new facility will handle smaller products, like books, Kindles and small electronics. The new warehouse will be able to hold millions of units. The new Kent facility will put more products closer to customers and extend the delivery window to a true two-day delivery across seven day a week.
