Amazon to Open Fulfillment Center in Austin/San Antonio Corridor
SAN MARCOS, TEXAS — Amazon has acquired a 100-acre site on McCarty Lane in San Marcos to develop an 855,000-square-foot fulfillment center. This will be Amazon’s fifth fulfillment location in Texas. Kit Corbin of Endura Advisory Group represented the undisclosed seller, and Ed Cross of San Antonio Commercial Advisors represented the buyer in the transaction. The city of San Marcos and the Texas Department of Transportation will cooperate with the developer of the Amazon facility to provide road improvements. Atlanta-based Seefried Industrial Properties Inc. is overseeing the project, alongside Houston-based engineering firm Jones & Carter Inc., according to reports by the Austin Business Journal. The fulfillment center will be completed in early 2017 and is expected to create more than 1,000 permanent jobs when fully staffed.
